Test Ellis Amburn's magnificent biography of the Academy Award®-winning actress and legendary beauty captures the unparalleled Elizabeth in all her tragedy and splendor—her tumultuous loves, her doomed affections, her shocking excesses, her courage, and her inimitable style. Filled with stunning revelations about the men in her life—Burton, Clift, Hilton, Dean, Fisher—it is a glorious celebration of the turbulent life of a brilliant star that none in Hollywood or heaven could ever outshine.

*Note* - This "Elizabeth Taylor" biography was published back in 2000 (11 years before her death), which, in a sense, renders this particular life-story about her as being decidedly incomplete.

But, regardless of whether it was an unfinished bio, or not - I personally found it to be a pretty uninspired retelling of Taylor's life up to that point.

What also lost this particular life-story some serious points was that, approximately, a third of its retelling was given over to Taylor's utterly nauseating marriage to that insufferable, bellowing, windbag, Richard Burton.

By the time that I had finished reading this truly irksome section of the book, I was, pretty much, fed up by these 2 bozos and their (seemingly endless) routine of petty jealousies, infidelities and what-have-you. I really was.

All-in-all - This "Most Beautiful Woman In The World" biography (poorly written by Ellis Amburn) was a less-than-satisfying read from my perspective.
