This is my choice for my July category "In Their Shoes". It's a new book and I have always liked Paul Newman and being he has recently died, I thought it would cover his whole life. I am not a big bio fan but here goes. Also I wonder if I will still like him as much when I finish the book. Sometimes it's better to just know a star in the context of their movies and not their personal lives.
Be back at review time.

Just finished reading my July pick. It was quite long and tedious at times. The author went in to a lot of detail about all the movies and plays Paul Newman was in. I did like all about his life from childhood till his death at age eighty-three. There was a lot that I didn't know about him-mostly that until much later in life he was not a very nice guy. He was a heavy drinker, actually a funtioning alcoholic. Didn't realize that he made as many movies as he did. If you like him and the movies you will probally enjoy this book. He became more charitable much later in life. As I noted in my original post, it's probally better to know an actor through their acting. I give it 3 1/2 stars.
