Charming and inspiring, but not really more than you would expect. Gottfried is a New York theatre critic, so naturally this biography is most enamored with Lansbury's Broadway career (certainly a legitimate stance, since that's where she has had the most success). To his credit, Gottfried doesn't short on the details of the star's life in film and television. Personally, I would have preferred an autobiography. This is a good biography, but by no means a transcendent one. As a rabid fan of the actress, I enjoyed it, but I would limit my recommendation to a "fans-only" audience. ( )
