Not only is Al Pacino known as 'one of the greatest actors in all of film history', he is also considered 'one of Hollywood's most notorious bachelors' (imdb.com) as well as being one of the most enigmatic and private celebrities in the world. For the first time, AL PACINO offers a deeply personal and revealing window into everything from his growing up in the South Bronx, where he shared three rooms with nine people, to his fabled studies with Charles Laughton and Lee Strasberg, his father's absence, his mother's early death, and how he bounced through a series of odd jobs until his first paid role at the age of 26. He reveals his childhood dream of becoming a professional baseball player, describes his first drink at 13, and admits his once ate Valium like popcorn at the Academy Awards. Though he has been involved with women like Diane Keaton and Beverly D'Angelo, the mother of his three children, he has never married and here reveals why, and how his feelings have changed. Through it all, he has delivered some of the most seminal performances in film and theatre history and worked with most of its biggest stars.He was nominated for seven Academy Awards before winning Best Actor Oscar for Scent of a Woman. AL PACINO is an intensely personal look at a creative genius at the peak of his powers who, after all these years, still longs to learn more about his art. And for now, it's a close to a memoir as we are likely to get.

An interesting and insightful book giving movie and Al Pacino fans a long awaited, frank and extremely enjoyable series of interviews that spans 30 years. The two men became good friends and as the friendship developed and grew both their confidence and trust reaped rewards in some of the exchanges between them. You can almost see the glint in Al Pacino's eye as he tries to dodge some of Lawrence Grobel's personal questions who, even after thirty years, never appears to take Al Pacino for granted. The thing that also comes across is the high level of honesty and integrity, refreshing, because by reputation these two professions seriously lacks these qualities in this day and age. It makes this book an even more satisfying read. If you're looking for sleazy kiss and tell look elsewhere. This book is not only a must for Al Pacino fans but a manual for aspiring actors who want to know how to develop their art instead of just wanting to become a celebrity.
