The epitome of grace, independence, and wit, Lauren Bacall continues to project an audacious spirit and pursue on-screen excellence. The product of an extraordinary mother and a loving extended family, she produced, with Humphrey Bogart, some of the most electric and memorable scenes in movie history. After tragically losing Bogart, she returned to New York and a brilliant career in the theatre. A two-time Tony winner, she married and later divorced her second love, Jason Robards, and never lost sight of the strength that made her a star. Now, thirty years after the publication of her original National Book Award-winning memoir, Bacall has added new material to her inspiring history. In her own frank and beautiful words, one of our most enduring actresses reveals the remarkable true story of a lifetime so rich with incident and achievement that Hollywood itself would be unable to adequately reproduce it.

Who knew Lauren Bacall and Frank Sinatra were an item? I certainly didn't until I read this memoir!

Forget Brad and Angelina. One of the biggest power couples in old Hollywood was the youthful Betty Bacall and her much older husband and legend, Humphrey Bogart. She tells the story so well and reveals that Bogie was truly a legend. Some details might even disappoint you, but they reveal the humanity of both husband and wife.

I walked away with a great respect and appreciation for Lauren Bacall after reading her memoir. She truly was a Hollywood legend in her own right. They don't make them like this anymore. Too bad.

This is such an immediate experience to read, and a very big juicy book full of real details and times.

Lauren Bacall is still a very alive person in my mind because of her book.

What a fascinating, interesting woman! And what a life! Old enough to have been part of the old Hollywood glamour world - young enough to tell about it. Great stuff
