Publisher's Summary

Robert Evans' The Kid Stays in the Picture is universally recognized as the greatest, most outrageous, and most unforgettable show business memoir ever written. The basis of an award-winning documentary film, it remains the gold standard of Hollywood storytelling.
With a new introduction by the legendary actor, producer, and Hollywood studio chief Robert Evans, The Kid Stays in the Picture is driven by a voice as charming and irresistible as any great novel.
An extraordinary raconteur, Evans spares no one, least of all himself. Filled with starring roles for everyone from Ava Gardner to Marlon Brando to Sharon Stone, The Kid Stays in the Picture is sharp, witty, self-aggrandizing, and self-lacerating in equal measure.

Insanely abridged.

Not only was the unabridged version abridged to the point of skipping multiple chapters, Robert Evans' retelling of his wild escapades was completely wooden. You're telling me that you had multiple woman, including Ava Gardner. fighting over you because your charm and personality in a monotone bored voice? Cool.

Not even close to unabridged

I enjoyed the book and the performance, but having read this twice prior, I'm extremely disappointed to find out that despite being advertised as unabridged, nothing could be further from the truth. There are large sections missing, and to the point where other parts make no sense. My advice is to read the book rather than listen to this. Then again, if you only want the basics of the story, then go ahead and download.
