This is Marlon Brando’s own story, and his reason for telling it is best revealed in his own words . To date there have been over a dozen books written about Marlon Brando, and almost all of them have been inaccurate, based on hearsay, sensationalist or prurient in tone.

This is Marlon Brando’s own story, and his reason for telling it is best revealed in his own words: I have always considered my life a private affair and the business of no one beyond my family and those I love. Now, at last, fifty years after his first appearance onstage in New York City, the actor has told his life story, with the help of Robert Lindsey.

In this memoir, Marlon Brando talks of his struggle to become an actor, of his stage and film career, and of his relationships with actors, producers and directors. He talks candidly of a dislocated childhood and of his driving ambition and relentless determination.

I enjoyed every aspect of this book. Brando lived a fascinating life. There is much in this book on his movie career, and there is also much on many other aspects of his life, in particular his family and his life in the Pacific. He shares a lot of his life philosophy, which is very interesting. I don't agree with all of his political views, but that didn't detract from my enjoyment. Highly recommended.

Marlon Brando is a complex individual with a wide breadth of emotions, undoubtedly why he was such an outstanding actor. Brando was a womanizer, a user, and callous in many of his relationships with women. Rarely a tender moment is expressed. The unusual dichotomy is Brando's sensitivity to the less fortunate and his amazing grasp of geopolitical manipulations and abuses. I was moved by his exceptional understanding of the abuses of power all around, but most specifically in this country. I came away even more depressed when reminded of the abuses by our own government knowing full well how we are manipulated by government propaganda to believe we are not capable of wrong doing. Marlon Brando gives us much more than just the story of his acting career in his insightful autobiography.

This was really a good read. Lots of insight and personal recollections by the man himself. BTW, the Songs my mother taught me as the subtitle of the book must have meant something very special to him.. In fact the songs his mother taught him meant a very great deal to this enigmatic and prolific actor. His sexual encounter with a female in the desert was noteworthy but that was the strangest one I recall. The book is written as if he was sitting there telling you everything. An easy read.

I do have to say that I was prompted to read this after reading Rita Moreno's memoir as she mentions him quite a bit in it. Brando's book is gritty, funny, insightful in to the inner man he was. Though he did have someone co-author with him, it did capture the inner essence of who Brando was and what he was about. I really enjoyed it and enjoyed looking through the various photographs included. It gave him a very different picture of the man who now I can see was not only appealing on the eye (in his early years) but inwardly so as well.

Loved this book, it amazed me how deep his thought process, understood his interpretation of life itself. Showed all his vulnerabilities and walked you through his thought process. Book was written so vividly that I felt I was living vicariously through him. Absolutely insightful and very moving, I myself went thru so many emotions while reading this wonderful book. Loved it.

A fantastic, illuminating read. In short: If you want to learn about method acting, the Hollywood system and hear a first-hand account of this deeply troubled but unique, brilliant mind, check it out. He was fascinated by the human condition and psychology in general, which really comes through in this rich autibiography

I never knew Marlon Brando until I read his autobiography, and then, I could clearly see what a complex, kind and thoughtful man he really was. He did have a dark side, but I suppose one cannot help but have some issues when raised in such an environment as he had (two alcoholic parents). Nevertheless, Brando excelled and made a name for himself, but I don't think he was truly ever really happy, not completely. He simply didn't trust human nature. He saw the ugly side of life at such a young age, that I think that true love and acceptance escaped him somehow. At any rate, I hope he's happy and at peace now. Truly a fascinating read.
