Bruce Willis : The Unauthorized Biography. From his first taste of success in his TV role in 'Moonlighting', the book traces his career through the much publicised period of drug and alcohol abuse, and a number of box-office flops in the early 1990's which so often spell the end of a film career. Pulp Fiction is treated as the resurrection of his film career

Walter Bruce Willis (born March 19, 1955) is an American actor, producer, and singer. Born to a German mother and American father in Idar-Oberstein, Germany, he moved to the United States with his family in 1957. His career began on the Off-Broadway.

Walter Bruce Willis (born March 19, 1955) is an American actor, producer, and singer. His career began on the Off-Broadway stage in the 1970s. He later achieved fame with his leading role on the hit television series Moonlighting (1985–1989).

Obviously Bruce Willis doesn't want to write his own book so this contains a lot of material gleaned from the press at the time. Best-selling in Non Fiction.

In the 1997 book, Bruce Willis: The Unauthorized Biography, by British author John Parker, Willis is quoted as saying, I could hardly talk. It took me three minutes to complete a sentence. It was crushing for anyone who wanted to express themselves, who wanted to be heard and couldn’t. Yet, when I became another character, in a play, I lost the stutter.

Actor Bruce Willis first made a splash on TV in 'Moonlighting' before becoming a big-screen star via hits like 'Die Hard,' 'Pulp Fiction' and 'The Sixth Sense. For Willis, whose acting heroes include Robert De Niro, Gary Cooper, Steve McQueen and John Wayne, work didn't come easy. He waited tables, tended bar and, when he had the chance, auditioned for roles. His first real break of any kind came in 1977 when he debuted in the off-Broadway play Heaven and Earth.

I was very eager to read this book, "Bruce Willis: The Unauthorized Biography" by John Parker as I am a big Bruce Willis fan and wish to learn all I can about this fascinating and talented actor. However this book did not tell me anything that I did not already know. Instead, it just rehashed the plots of his movies and TV appearances and included slapjack commentary by the author.

The book is a total of 250 pages long and was published in 1997 (the actual "story" only goes up to the summer of '96 though) and this was published in the UK by Virgin Books. There aren't any in-depth or exclusive interviews nor did the author do any prior research.

The only thing I like about the book is the cover, a nice pic of Bruce.

I get the feeling that Mr. Parker relied mostly on "news reports" (i.e. 20 year-old magazine articles) to piece this book together which just came off as sloppy and shoddy because there were numerous inaccuracies and grammatical errors. And he even got the plots of some of Bruce's most well-known movies wrong which makes me question Mr. Parker's motives in writing this foolishness.

The book also takes a ton of dips and discuses the movie plots of Demi Moore as well as the movies and careers of several other Hollywood actors (past, present and current). What does this have to do with Bruce Willis's biography? Not a thing!!! It should not have found a home in Bruce's book, yet I suppose journalistic integrity has very little to do with making a quick buck.

The author also writes about Bruce Willis's hometown in NJ as if it were some flyover Midwestern state that no one has ever heard of. Again, no references to back up these claims were provided because not a lick of research was conducted.

The pictures provided (a few black and white ones) go perfectly with the text: boring, old, low-quality and incredibly unoriginal. There are even pictures of Demi Moore (again, what does this have to do with Bruce Willis's biography??) thrown in, no doubt for pointless filler.

The sad thing is, "Bruce Willis: The Unauthorized Biography" is the only Bruce Willis biography to date. Perhaps the author knew this and simply did not wish to put any extra effort into this project. Shame on him for such a lazy and lackluster job. Bruce deserves better. One day I hope there will be a comprehensive book about him (he sure deserves it), but in the meantime stay away from this one as it's was a huge waste.

John Parker gives great detail of Bruce Willis' life and his career. The book delivers information that not many people know about Bruce Willis. Bruce Willis has so far had an excellent career and you learn about this in this book.
