Reviews

"[A] thorough, measured, fact-filled, 600-page, movie-by-movie, girlfriend-by-girlfriend study that is right up a movie geek's alley." -New York Times Book Review

"An impressive biography that will surely stand as the definitive De Niro volume." -Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"'De Niro' is impressive, fair-minded, and doesn't shrink from tough questions....[It's] jam-packed with insight, anecdotes, and trivia about [De Niro's] films." -Christian Science Monitor

"De Niro: A Life is likely as close as anyone can get to figuring out just who the star of "Goodfellas" and "Raging Bull" is in private, and the author's respectful tone and preference for art over scandal would likely please the book's subject...[A]n addictive read." -The Oregonian

"[A] well-researched biography.... Making good use of the scripts, working notes, and a copious collection of props and clothing in the De Niro archive at the University of Texas in Austin, Levy creates a portrait of a private man who seems to depend on the creation of characters to sustain himself." -Washington Post
