Nevertheless - Alec Baldwin

Alec Baldwin is one of those guys that is at times compelling to watch and listen to, and then can get annoying.  His book had the same effect on me too.  Like most biographies I enjoyed the early times, the growing up and school years and the early years.  Then it seemed in the later years that he had lots of falling outs and seemed to have what seemed to me lots of petty jealousies.  I got the sense that he felt his career was somewhat hindered and not what it could have been.  For us looking at him being a movie star, being on a successful tv show and now his own radio show it doesn't look so bad.

The book did redeem itself at the end as he talked about his new wife Hilaria and his four children.  It makes us like a man so much more when you can sense the great love he has for his family, 3/5

It's interesting what you can read in a book; it may be explicit, it may be between the lines, but it isn't always what the author intends for you to read.
