Most "E! True Hollywood" stories concern idiots who abuse their fame and fortune. This biography would be a wonderful alternative to the usual fare, except that Radner dies. It's a really nice story. If you're sick of hearing about spoiled brats and conceited pigs, this biography will offer a welcomed change of pace. However, the subject, Ms. Radner/Wilder, becomes endearing to the point where you really don't want to see the end. It was the only "True Hollywood" story that had an emotional impact on me (although I DO enjoy most of the stories). Radner's life stands as a testament to the fact that God challenges the best people with the most difficult tests of spirit. A great biography, but you may wish to create a diversion for yourself while you're watching it; it IS a downer in many respects.
