Rated 4 out of 5 by from A solid Autobiography This book took me a long time to work my way through - it wasn't that I didn't like it. I actually have always been fascinated by Cary Grant. I read it more for his story then for Dyan's. Part of it made me sad for both of them. It is worth the time and I think a fair assessment of Dyan's opinions of her husband. I hope their daughter actually appreciates how challenging the writing of this was. I'm glad she shared her perspective and story.
