Add to Shopping Bag

[Signed] Taylor, Elizabeth. Elizabeth Takes Off, On Weight Gain, Weight Loss, Self-Image, and Self-Esteem. First Edition, First Printing. 1987. Book is very good condition; dust jacket is in very good minus condition—jacket shows edgewear and mild rubbing.

Honesty and glamour are sometimes sworn enemies, but in the case of Elizabeth Taylor, each reinforced the other. That made her a great star, and it makes this an exceptional self-help book. The first half is actually memoir, anyway. The focus is mid-life and the challenges it brings, but there is also much on the roller coaster ride that took her there. She concludes triumphantly, explaining that after a dramatic life of black and white, it was time to cultivate the gray, “a very attractive color . . . not dull at all.”
