Not sure I know much more about Redford than when I began reading this bio. Lots of politics, environmental concerns, casting angst on movies but very little about Redford as a person outside of his activism, politics, passion and lateness. Very little on family life (beyond wife's politics, naturally) friends and co-workers (beyond their politics) and the experience of making some very successful movies.
I wasn't looking for fluff but expected more warmth and humanity...not chapter after chapter of "environment, canyons, development, politics, history, etc."
The narration is first rate...sounds a little like Redford but this is not an audiobook I would recommend.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, defenitely. I learned so much about this man.
What did you like best about this story?
What I liked most were his reasons for doing particular films. I have watched a few of his films back, and some I hadn't seen before. It gave an extra dimension to the films. I also was intriged to hear of how he seemed to struggle between staying true to his authentic self and the pressures of Hollywood and the changes in the world.
Which character – as performed by Mark Deakins – was your favorite?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, it was too long. But every night in bed I would listen to about 45 minutes.
Any additional comments?
The voice of Mark Deakins was very pleasant to listen to.
