"First-rate. . . . A layered portrait of one of the most famous--and elusive--faces in pop culture." --"Milwaukee Journal Sentinel"

"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.
