An engaging biography that discusses Taylor's relationships with her father, mother and brother - not just her many husbands. This look into her family of origin and its effect on her life choices is interesting and a new look at this interesting woman - a very talented actress who made many poor choices in her personal and professional life but ended up a multimillionaire who was adulated by fans the world over. I recommend it.
