"Compelling . . . Finstad's admiring portrait of the actor is rooted in his childhood . . . and the background was especially remarkable . . . because it also produced Beatty's talented and fascinating sister Shirley MacLaine. . . Beatty's life has something to teach people about eluding fame's snares." —Deirdre Donahue, USA Today
"One of the six must-reads for fall . . . you must read it because this is the first serious biography of the enigmatic actor-writer-producer-director and legendary lover boy, and it provides a detailed look into the conservative Southern childhood that shaped and motivated him." —Cox News Service
"For nearly 600 pages of interesting and thoughtful prose, Finstad follows Beatty as he slaloms, sometimes graciously, sometimes like Niccolo Macchiavelli, through one of civilization's most treacherous proving grounds, the movie business." —David Gilmour, Toronto Star
"Finstad, an excellent, sympathetic writer, goes a long way here to explain the mysterious, often monosyllabic Warren . . . Finstad, who wrote the haunting and controversial Natalie Wood bio Natasha, packs her Beatty book with exclusive interviews and info on all things Warren . . . this is a fascinating look at a man who has lived a public life without selling his soul to that public." —Liz Smith, New York Post
