Publisher's Summary

Here is Humphrey Bogart: the pro's pro on the set and the Hollywood renegade off it; the man's man, the ladies' man, the hard worker, and the man who liked to drink too much; the husband in three roller-coaster marriages and finally one perfect match; the proud father and absentee parent; the good friend and even better enemy. Writing with the encouragement of his famous mother, Lauren Bacall, Stephen calls on his memories as well as the access he had to friends and colleagues of his father. The result is an intimate and personal profile of an enigmatic man whose tough image contrasted with very human ambitions and vulnerabilities.
This vastly entertaining book is filled with fascinating stories involving Frank Sinatra, Katherine Hepburn, "Swifty" Lazar, John Huston, Jason Robards, and many others.

"Whitener's reading is straightforward and appealing. By the end, you feel as if someone has sat down with you and let you in on the behind-the-scenes action of some Hollywood's greatest figures." (KLIATT)

but what about Bogart ?

Clearly Mr Bogart's son , the author of this book , has paternal issues . I was hoping to learn more insights on his father's life rather than the author's own suppressed and self centered childhood problems which can be best described as "whiney" .
