This was a fun book to read. Having been a GWTW fan for 50 years, I already knew much of the story but also didn't know much of the story. Got out my old paperback copy of GWTW and re-read some parts. Still like it in spite of the critics, and this book enhanced the enjoyment.

The research is well done but there are too many details repeated. I would have enjoyed it more if it were condensed at least 30 per cent.

Format: Paperback
I very much enjoyed reading this biography especially the chapters relating to the writing of the GWTW and the novel's whirlwind success. Mitchell is portrayed as a quick-witted and very personable character -- one that everyone would love to know. However, I felt the latter part of the book was pretty unflattering (although perhaps true) with regard to Mitchell's personality and the bitter and malicious picture it painted of her last few years. The author may at times be taking some liberties in his implication of understanding the inner workings of her mind.

Another slight criticism of this book is the enormous amount of typos -- more than in any other book I've ever read! Overall, as someone who holds both the novel and film as her favorites, I would recommend it.
