Reviews

"As incisive a biography of Redford as there is ever likely to be." --"The New York Times" "One of the 10 Best Movie Books of the Year." -"Entertainment Weekly" "Revealing. . . . An unusually well-written movie-star biography. . . . "Robert Redford" is as fascinating...as its subject." --"The Wall Street Journal" "Meticulous. . . . Tells Redford's story through Redford's eyes and through the eyes of his family, friends and allied associates." --"San Francisco Chronicle" "First-rate. . . . A layered portrait of one of the most famous--and elusive--faces in pop culture." --"Milwaukee Journal Sentinel" "Deeply researched. . . . Callan's book begins and ends exactly where it should: with that quadrant of Utah soil christened by its owner 'Sundance.'" --"The Washington Post" "Meticulous. . . . Covers in detail Redford's four-decade acting career, his emergence as a director and his dedication to environmental causes." --"The New York Times Book Review"" ""Genuinely insightful . . . Michael Feeney Callan remains keenly aware of his subject's larger-than-lifeness, even as he tries to chip away to reveal the person underneath." --"Entertainment Weekly" "Callan's book is one of the most thoroughly researched, analytic examinations ever conducted into the life of a popular entertainer."" --The Sunday Times (London)" "A precise, weighty analysis of Redford's life and impact, meticulously constructed and delivered with pace and style. . . . Set to become the definitive account, not only of Redford, but also of that era of movie-making that was his hey-day, the era of "All The President's Men" and "The Candidate."" --"Irish Independent"" ""A deft narrative about the business of making mainstream movies from the 1960s to the present, loaded with insider interviews and compelling mini-histories of how Redford movies like 'The Candidate, ' 'Out of Africa, ' and 'A River Runs Through It' came to be made.
