As an actor, he seduced us with his tough-guy charm in A Fistful of Dollars and Dirty Harry. As a director and a producer, he amazed us with his artistic insight and technical savvy in Unforgiven, Million Dollar Baby, and Changeling. Clint Eastwood represents the finest cinematic achievements of the last decades, and he remains one of film's greatest living legends. In American Rebel, Marc Eliot examines the ever-exciting, often tumultuous arc of Eastwood's life and career, from his days as a disaffected college dropout, to his rise to fame as the archetypal loner, to his acceptance into the pantheon of the Academy as a multiple Oscar Award winner. But this unauthorized biography is as much about Eastwood's personal life as his public work, and unlike past biographers, Eliot explores Eastwood's complex relationship between his life and his art with an unflinching look at his failures and his successes. The most complete and up-to-date Eastwood biography yet, American Rebel is a must-have for Eastwood fans and anyone who loves movies. Download and start listening now!

    " A very sexist book if you ask me, but good reading if you must understand Hollywood. Definitely a man's book, but good research for this female mind as it chronicles the journey of an actor who got by in Hollywood by essentially playing himself and learned what Hollywood wanted from him the hard way. I like Clint Eastwood now I must say because I like him better as a director than an actor (plus I don't like westerns). He really does get better with age... "

    " The most B.A. actor/director in the movies. Such an incredible career. "

    " Ugly. I guess the most delicate way I could put it is that this is an unremarkable, overrated book about an uninspiring life. "

    " Clint Eastwood comes across as so many of his film characters: cold, aloof, ruthless, egotistical, and a man of few words. I remember when his affair with Sandra Locke was made public I was so disgusted with her for breaking up his marriage. What a joke!! He was born a Tomcat and had bedded almost every woman he came across. When she sued him I really thought she was a money grubbing woman trying to use him to further her career. This book certainly proved me wrong! Eastwood has talent, but he's not the sort of person you'd want to socialize with. "
