    1. A well written bio as far as reporting incidents go, I was captured by the relentless artist spirit of one of my favorite actors. O'Tool was surely a taker in his life but I am now confident he left us with a great, great deal more than he ever could have robbed. A beautiful man.


    2. A complex man of great acting talent with an amazing (yet frightening) capacity to consume so so so much alcohol. There are stories galore in this bio on O'Toole about his skills as a thespian and his mercurial personality with his co-workers, family, and taverns. This work looking into his interesting self-imposed doomed life goes down like a 7 times distilled, 5 times filtered vodka made with natural glacial water from Burgundy grapes. Cheers!


    3. Peter O'Toole remains a shimmering star of stage and screen. Sellers superb biography peels the many layers of myth from the actor's life to reveal a supremely-talented man, a brilliant actor, raconteur and writer who, quite simply, drank himself into a long old-age far too soon. Ultimately, this is a sobering read.



    4. It's hard to tell whether Peter O'Toole had a life. Readers would be familiar with the screen performances, most of them, and likely not know much about his stage work. Both those areas the book covers. O'Toole was nothing if not a thespian.Not exactly nothing. He was also a prodigious drinker, and later in life, when alcohol was verboten, seems to have dabbled in other substance. The book covers this, too.Outside performance anecdotes and tales of roistering, the 'life' part comes across as tra [...]


    5. I love biographies, but some of them are a little dry. This wasn't. It reads like a novel, but it's true. Peter O'Toole was a wonderful character of the type they don't seem to make anymore. This was really fascinating and well-written.


    6. tore through ity wish it were longere expression "warts and all" springs to mind but i think many of the warts were glossed over heresential reading if you've any interest.


    7. A legend in the acting (and drinking) world, an absolute genius of the stage. This is the reason for the 5 stars. "The definitive biography"? I am not so sure. This is a collection of anecdotes and drinking tales of his life (mainly drinking). However, the tales are both hilarious and outrageous, also by the end strangely moving. Well worth a read if you are a fan.


    8. It purports to be a definitive biography of the unique, self-destructive Peter O'Toole but offers little psychology as to what made him so determinedly undermine his great gift. In addition, the filmography misses a credit, albeit a minor one: O'Toole lending his voice to the early 90's Canadian cartoon "The Nutcracker Prince." For author Sellers, a devoted hell-raiser hag, it's more than enough to simply be in the complicated company of such a larger-than-life talent. The more discriminating, h [...]



    9. Loved reading this biography of the one and only Peter O'Toole, one of (if not THE) most original actors of his generation, his hell-raising antics, his crazy drinking, and his continous 'joie de vivre' is wonderful to read in this up to date biography of his life. One of the most overlooked actors, here is an actor who gave his commitment and dedication to the craft of performing, and came up with such wonderful and memorable performances on stage and screen.


    10. I had previously read Robert Seller’s exciting and most enjoyable book HELLRAISERS: THE LIFE AND INEBRATED TIMES OF RICHARD BURTON, RICHARD HARRIS, PETER O’TOOLE, AND OLIVER REED. And if you have not yet read this earlier volume I highly recommend it. As to this latest book marketed as the definitive biography of Peter O’Toole we are left with a more somber narrative which I read as a life full of promise and full of lost opportunities. You see Peter O’Toole was and has been my favorite [...]


    11. With roles in films like Laurence of Arabia, The Lion In Winter, Night Of The Generals, My Favorite Year, Stunt Man, The Last Emperor, and Venus, as well as classic stage work, Peter O'Toole was one of the premier actors of his generation. He was also a notorious hell-raiser. With the likes of Richard Burton, Albert Finney, Richard Harris, Omar Sharif and others, his exploits were legendary. But he also had a complex side in his marriage to equally acclaimed actress Sian Phillips (even though th [...]
