Everyone will enjoy Paul Newman: People Tribute, the Life of a Legend. This book is laid out in a "faux" magazine format, with black and white or color photos combined with interesting text on the actor's work and life. It covers his early years, growing up in Ohio. Then it explains how he got into pictures, and moved to Westport, where he led a quiet and private life. The book also discusses how he was passionate about certain political and social issues. Newman developed a specialty line of foods (Newman's brand), and donated all the proceeds to his "Hole in the Wall Camps" for seriously ill children. He was passionate about two things in his life: his wife of fifty years, Joanne Woodward, and automobile racing. Despite his fame and fortune, he remained well-grounded, and was genuinely grateful for his fortunate life. This book summarizes his many films, and provides a treasure trove of candid and serious photographs. This book is a quick read, and a must-read for the movie buff.
