Born in Ireland in 1932, Peter O'Toole was one of Hollywood's most highly regarded actors. O'Toole's rise to stardom began in 1962, when he played T.E. Lawrence in Lawrence of Arabia. He went on to appear in such critically heralded films as Becket (1964) and The Lion in Winter (1968). Later successes include My Favorite Year (1982) and Venus (2006). After battling a long illness, O'Toole died peacefully at the age of 81 in a London hospital on 14 December 2013.Review:

Ah, what a saga he has to spin, he has, oh yes, and how he tells it! I found myself at the end of this brief memoir wanting to know much, much more about the author and his family and his work -- The New York Times Book Review, William Murray
