The epitome of grace, independence, and wit, Lauren Bacall continues to astound generations with her audacious spirit and on-screen excellence. Together with Humphrey Bogart, she produced some of the most electric scenes in movie history, and their romance on and off screen made them Hollywood's most celebrated couple.

But when Bogart died of cancer in 1957, Bacall and their children had to take everything he had taught them and grow up fast. In a time of postwar communism, Hollywood blacklisting, and revolutionary politics, she mixed with the legends: Hemingway, the Oliviers, Katharine Hepburn, Bobby Kennedy, and Gregory Peck. She was engaged to Frank Sinatra and had a turbulent second marriage to Jason Robards. But Bacall never lost sight of the strength that made her a superstar, and she never lost sight of Bogie.

Now, on the silver anniversary of its original publication, Bacall brings her inspiring memoir up to date, chronicling the events of the past 25 years, including her recent films and Broadway runs, and fond memories of her many close lifelong friendships. As one of the greatest actresses of all time turns 80, By Myself and Then Some reveals the legend in her own beautiful frank words, encapsulating a story that even Hollywood would struggle to reproduce.

    " At last finished it! Surprisingly dull for someone who's had a fascinating life, wouldn't recommend it. "

    " If you can find this book on CD, buy it. Lauren Bacall reads it herself, and that somehow makes it all the more interesting. I probably should have given this 5 stars. I like it. There was nothing I didn't like. If you have any interest at all in autobiographies, get this one. She has a very sharp mind and remembers everything. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katariina | 1/23/2014

    " This was one of the most heartfelt books I've read in a long time. Honest, down-to-Earth and just plain good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rose | 1/21/2014

    " Being such a fan of the "Golden Age of Cinema", I loved this book. Lauren Bacall's memoir is at times funny and poignant, and other times heartwrenchingly sad. I loved the family pictures with her and Bogie. Their love story read like a romance novel even though their HEA was not forever. This is going on a shelf of books that I will treasure forever. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emma | 1/20/2014

    " Simply amazing. You can't stop reading it and see where it's going to go. She experienced it and she shares it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Betsey | 1/13/2014

    " It was an "okay" read. I think I was looking for a bit more Hollywood "juice", but she's pretty tame. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cody | 11/15/2013

    " Lauren Bacall has long been one of my favourite actresses. Her story was fascinating - I was sorry to reach the end of this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cari | 8/3/2012

    " Very interesting book into her life. Although a long-winded and politically preachy in the last few chapters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi Zisch | 7/2/2012

    " Was a fan of the actress and became a fan of the writer Ms. Bacall having read her books! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellena | 5/7/2012

    " I absolutely adore Bacall in How to Marry a Millionaire. Her autobiography is honest and beautifully written. I cried several times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie Christian | 3/16/2012

    " I liked this book because I like Lauren Bacall - but I wish she'd gone into more detail. The only times she even really hit on were the huge events like birth and death. Maybe I should've read her first book before this one? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberly | 11/1/2011

    " I did like Lauren's Bio but the last 200 - 300 pages were a drag. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne Marshall | 8/3/2011

    " Very interesting and touching. Sad at times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 TeaButterfly | 6/24/2011

    " I'm no fan of biographies, but I couldn't miss this one. Betty has such a great personality and she lived in the most glamorous of all eras, the 1940's ! Call it a guilty pleasure, but a pleasure it was to read that book, from cover to cover. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jon | 2/14/2011

    " So good to read a real Hollywood legends story from the inside. Honest and fascinating "

    " Such a wonderful book, it amazes me how she can remember back that far! I can't even remember what i was thinking five minutes ago and she can go back sixty years! :) "

    " What a dame. What a doll.

    Extreme kudos, and then some, for her role in Dogville.

    " Read by Lauren Bacall. A fascinating character, book. She sounds terrific, wish I could have see her on stage in the 70's. Maybe she'll be in something I can see her in today... "
