I really enjoyed this book - seemed quite an honest account of the author's friendship with the Princess.

Back Cover Blurb:
During the last five years of her life, Diana and healer Simone Simmons formed a unique bond. Diana opened up her heart - and her mind - to Simone, whom she trusted completely, and Simone helped to shape the remainder of the Princess's tragically short life. In 1997, she said to Simone: 'If anything happens to me, write a book and tell it like it is.'
This is the result. Finally, the record can be set straight on the many unanswered questions about every aspect of Diana's life, including her lovers, her fascination with religion and the afterlife, her relationship with her children, her in-laws and, of course, Prince Charles. This book truly is the last word. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312354991, Hardcover)

During the last five years of her life, Princess Diana had one friend and confidante who was special to her. She was not part of Diana's social circle; she was not a family friend. That woman was Simone Simmons, a healer, who devoted herself to the troubled Princess.

Simone formed a unique bond with Diana. They met almost everyday and spent hours on the telephone. Diana opened her heart and mind to Simone, who always told the Princess the unvarnished truth. No subject was taboo, and the two women discussed everything and anything, sharing laughter and tears over cups of chamomile tea. Since Diana appreciated and trusted her friend's candor, Simone got to know the Princess in a way no one else has ever done. With Simone, Diana felt confident enough to express her true self.

In 1997, Diana told her friend she wanted her to write a book which revealed the truth about her, to "tell it like it is." This is that book. It is truly the last word.

With her extraordinary insight into Diana's life, Simone captures the soul of the Princess and creates an intimate and rich portrait of one of the great icons of the 20th Century. In these pages, Simone describes how it really was: who among the royals was good to Diana and who was hateful; her need to be in love and to have an affair; her only fling--with John F. Kennedy, Jr.--at the Carlisle hotel; her real relationship with Paul Burrell; why she inflicted self-harm; how she wanted to move to New York or Los Angeles; how Mother Teresa hurt her; why her relationship with Dodi never would have ended in marriage; and her enduring love for Prince Charles.

Though Diana was extremely insecure, with Simone's help and work she became strong and learned that she could heal others around her. DIANA--THE LAST WORD is the fascinating story of how she reached that point. It finally settles the unanswered questions of Diana's life and addresses the many revelations that have materialized since her death.
