Lawrence J. Quirk delves into every personal and professional aspect of Bob Hope's long, complex and dramatic life; rising by sheer dint of will to great wealth and fame.

Why did Hope become so identified with sponsoring the Vietnam War? What's the real scoop on his relationship with Bing Crosby? How far astray did Hope's frankly oversexed nature lead him from the marriage he successfully maintained with Dolores for over sixty years?

Quirk writes about Hope based on long experience. He knew and interviewed Bob Hope while serving as an army sergeant during the Korean war and later as entertainment editor, and interviewer of top stars for over forty years. Q

uirk approaches his subject with original observations born of years of studying this most celebrated, yet in some ways most mysterious of entertainment giants.

About the Author

Lawrences Quirk's biographies include Bette Davis, James Stewart, Joan Crawford, and Cher.

      Comments about Bob Hope:

      Great to read a book that was not scared to tell the good and the bad. Hopes life told in some detail. What people thought of him and his achievements throughout his career
