I enjoyed this book very much. It was very personable, touching, revealing and humorous. I loved the relationship that developed between the writer and Ms. Hepburn. Her recollections of her times with many actors, directors, producers and even Michael Jackson were entertaining. It is a heartwarming book that traces her life written gracefully, with deep respect and love. I learned much about Kate Hepburn from her stories of her childhood, her ancestry, her loves, her passions, her philosophies on life and death, her strong work ethic and her loyalties to her family and friends.
It is a wonderful book that includes some lovely photos of her, too.

Most of the 370 pages describe Kate's experiences with every major movie she made. Although not many pages are spent on any one movie--the volume of pages adds up quick.

The latter part of the book is the most enlightening about who Kate is as a person, not the actress. What a remarkable woman.

The author was a good friend of Kates and writes a thoughtful account of her life. It gave a good insight into her life not just a record of the movies she made. It was very well done.

Those of us of a certain age, growing up watching re-runs on television of her moives, will recall Katherine Hepburn as a strong personality, with a unique accent and as a woman of definite opinions. Scott Berg was allowed to personally interview Kate over many years, developing a close friendship. The stories give a depth to Kate's life that would not be evident to a casual movie-goer. This classic collection is a good addition to bios of women who made a difference.

This is a great book for anyone who wants to know the real Kate Hepburn, not just the actress, and who loves the history of the early Hollywood and Broadway years.

Katherine Hepburn biography book-on-tape, 10 hours, set of 6 audio casettes.

This would be more appropriately titled "Kate and Friends, Remembered," as Berg delves into so much detail about every aspect of Hepburn's life. LOTS of information here, so hunker down. You really have to be a a Hepburn fan to stick with all 8 cds. Berg weaves in details of all of her films, personal relationships, friendships, friends of friends, divorces, Old Hollywood, Hollywood Royalty. My cat and I listened to this on a long drive, and Tony Goldwyn's voice(narrator) was so soothing that Jimi(kitty) was asleep the entire trip. Yeah, she's a Hepburn fan as well.
