In 'My Fair Lady', Julie Andrews had the biggest hit on Broadway. As the title role in 'Mary Poppins', she won an Academy Award. And 'The Sound of Music' made her the most famous woman in the world and rescued Twentieth Century Fox from bankruptcy. Three year later, 'Star!' almost put the studio back under, and the leading lady of both films fell as spectacularly as she had risen.

Despite many setbacks - including the loss of her singing voice in 1997 - Julie Andrews is still a star, with recent leading roles in 'Shrek the Third' and 'The Princess Diaries'.

Combining the author's interviews with the star and his wide-ranging research, this is a frank but affectionate portrait of an enduring icon of stage and screen. Download and start listening now!

    " After reading this book, I actually wish I knew less about Julie Andrews. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 10/1/2013

    " I don't like reading a book with a lot of dates and place names so at times this book was a little like reading a bibliography of Julie Andrews press clippings but it was an interesting read and had a broader view of her entire life, not just her early years, like her memoir. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Malcolm | 9/18/2013

    " This book would have been enhanced if the author had ditched his constant, intrusive, irritation and irrelevant references to both Julie Andrews star sign and the number of time he had met her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zara | 9/17/2013

    " This was a good book to read. I was left however, feeling as though it wasn't complete. It didn't seem to cover all of her life, only part of it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cate | 6/24/2012

    " Although Stirling sometimes glosses over certain parts of Andrews' life, this biography is well-written, insightful, and entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lesley | 1/27/2011

    " a very close look at the stars life, very good "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 5/31/2010

    " One of my favorite movies is Victor/Victoria. After I read this book I just had to put it in the player and watch it again. She was/is so beautiful, and her voice is heavenly. This book was a good read, but not much in it that I didn't already know. Except for the fact that we are near the same age! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 3/25/2010

    " Got bored with it. Hopefully Julie Andrews will write the rest of her own story someday. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl Russell | 7/6/2009

    " Interesting read - amazing story of her early years and made me want to read more about the later years. I hired Ms Andrews to speak at our convention in November so hope to get the book signed then. "

    " Too hard to read. The author is very choppy and I couldn't follow him very well. Jumped around a lot. "
