"Richard Attenborough and Diana Hawkins have been friends and colleagues for nearly fifty years. They have now teamed up to write this frank and funny account of their unlikely partnership and his extraordinary life." "Attenborough is the octogenarian celebrity peer, happily married since 1945, describing a lifetime of ceaseless activity as film star, director, producer, company chairman and indefatigable campaigner." "Hawkins, seventy, a twice-divorced single parent and author who lived for a time on benefits, went on to become Attenborough's publicist, business partner and, ultimately, his co-producer." "He is staunch Labour; she is a committed Conservative. His glass is always half-full, hers obstinately half-empty." "Together, laughing and squabbling, they have travel led the world, meeting people and making films. Among the eclectic cast of characters who appear in this two-handed memoir are Steve McQueen, Mother Teresa, Charlie Chaplin, Robert Mugabe, Edward G. Robinson, Shirley Maclaine, Ronald Reagan, David Lean, Margaret Thatcher, John Mills, Steven Spielberg, Noel Coward, Tommy Lawton, Indira Gandhi, George Brown and Nelson Mandela," "Prompted by his adventures in the movie business. Attenborough goes on to reflect on the highs and lows of his long life, both in and out of the public gaze. He writes revealingly of his passion for football and politics, of his avuncular relationship with Princess Diana, and finally about the tsunami tragedy which engulfed his family in December 2004."--BOOK JACKET
