    My Kindle app is acting up even after updating and restarting. That why I could not review earlier. I do not know much about John Wayne but I admire him. It was a good read. It held my interest. I only did 3 stars for these type of books do not have a reference. There is one thing I question. However, I did not research. Again, I do not know much about John Wayne. 🇺🇸🦋🐼💀

    Thank God its over I have been a fan of John Wayne for decades. This piece of crap of a biography does nothing for him whatsoever. It is choppy. It is horribly written. It reads more like a gossip column than a biography. Hourly History you should be ashamed of yourself. This one defines the word "bad".

    In this short biography, I feel I learned a brief outline of John Wayne's life, from is family situation growing up, to his football years and introduction to the movie sets, to his three wives, his movie career, and ultimately his battle with cancer. I did not learn what kind of father he was, although he had four children. There was a brief run down of some of his movies but nothing was mentioned of the two movies he did with Maureen O'Hara, which are my personal favorites.

I did not learn what kind of father he was, although he had four children. There was a brief run down of some of his movies but nothing was mentioned of the two movies he did with Maureen O'Hara, which are my personal favorites. He cheated on his first wife, had many rows with his second wife, and then the third marriage was short lived. I did not learn much about his friendships or what he believed in. The book did say that John Wayne claimed to be very patriotic, in part because he felt guilty that he did not enlist during War War II. It is ironic that the macho, type A film hero that he was known for actually evaded the draft and was a hard drinker. At the end of the book I got there feeling there was much more to John Wayne's life and this book was only skimming over a bare outline.

    This biography of John Wayne was a mixed bag for me.  It talks about his beginnings, his start in the movies, his complicated relationships with women, and his death.  However, I had slightly higher expectations.  I certainly expected to see photos of his three wives.  I also expected to see more about what made John Wayne tick.  The closest we got to that is when the book mentioned that Wayne was always sorry that he did not volunteer for WWII.  They went on to postulate that this grief colored This biography of John Wayne was a mixed bag for me.  It talks about his beginnings, his start in the movies, his complicated relationships with women, and his death.  However, I had slightly higher expectations.  I certainly expected to see photos of his three wives.  I also expected to see more about what made John Wayne tick.  The closest we got to that is when the book mentioned that Wayne was always sorry that he did not volunteer for WWII.  They went on to postulate that this grief colored his perceptions of the Vietnam War. Yes, I knew that Wayne had a close, personal attachment to John Huston.  But he also had strong relationships with other actors, etc., that weren't mentioned (Ward Bond, to name one).  What there was of the book was great. (3.5 stars)

I was able to get an autograph at the both films and a hand shake at the second. I was a Navy Brat and my father was a Flying Chief, USN. Two classic war movies of the many JW filmed. This is an excellent read for the genre.....DEHS

This book could have been so much more, but then I'm a lifelong John Wayne fan trying to relive the memories.

    A man with “True Grit” Though I can honestly say “I was never a great fan of John Wayne”, I did enjoy several of his later movies (such as “The Searchers”, “True Grit” and “Rooster Cogburn”. Is was an interesting person, with lots of strife and successes in his life. I’m pleased to have discovered and read this little ditty about he and his life.

    The Duke: A True Legend This book is a great, though short, depiction of The Duke's life. Most of his struggles and success in his professional life as well as his personal life are addressed well. John Wayne was my father's favorite movie star and he became mine, naturally. Always loved Mr. Wayne since I first saw "Stagecoach" with my father.

    Interesting short bio of Duke. Got his real name wrong. They said "Mitchell" instead of Michael. Just made me question if I could trust the rest of the book. I caught that error... what if they made one I didn't catch? Still enjoyed reading it but I am definitely nervous about using it as a reference to anything.

    I felt that this was a very good and compelling biography of John Wayne, who I thought led a very interesting life. I thought it described the successes and failures in both his working and private life each to the right extent. Very interesting.

    Good shirt biography This short volume is a good intro biography of a great actor. I think a little less time could have been spent on his failed marriages and more time on the body of his work.

    Great book about the duke. I learned about John Wayne. I knew he had changed his name,buy didn’t know why. Now I do. It was an interesting book but covered more about his love life’s, marriages and divorces. It was an interesting book. Hope you enjoy it

    Too little on his filmography. This was his contribution not his failed marriages.
