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.”
