For this detailed, insightful and entertaining biography of the likeable and handsome Oscar-winning star is packed with unforgettable stories to fascinate every fan.

Learn more about Colin's greatest projects like Pride and Prejudice, Bridget Jones’s Diary, Love Actually, A Single Man, The King's Speech and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Railway Man, Before I Go to Sleep, Magic in the Moonlight as well as his lesser known screen roles and how he really gets along with co-stars such as Hugh Grant, Rupert Everett, Kenneth Branagh, Geoffrey Rush and Gary Oldman, and leading ladies like Scarlett Johansson, Minnie Driver, Jennifer Ehle, Meryl Streep, Uma Thurman, Julianne Moore and Renee Zellweger.
The star's love life, charity work and turbulent childhood are also covered in a riveting read which is the book Firth's devoted fans have been waiting for.

Ultimate Hollywood insider Sandro Monetti takes you from set visits to red carpet parties and award shows like the BAFTAS and Golden Globes following Firth around the world in his book written with the pace, power and passion of a master storyteller. His favourite Colin Firth film is Fever Pitch.

“Colin Firth’s story is one everybody wants to hear right now and Sandro Monetti is the perfect writer to tell it,” Elisa Roche, Daily Express

“Sandro delivers drama in a compelling way. You won’t want to put his books down,” James Desborough, News International

“Sandro Monetti is an experienced entertainment journalist who has a great reputation in both Hollywood and Great Britain for unearthing big 'A-List' scoops based on his extensive list of industry contacts that make him a 'must-read' author when it comes to all things celebrity,” Cliff Renfrew, US Weekly

"Sandro's enthusiasm for all things showbiz, his in-depth research and passionate story telling ensure his books are packed full of illuminating, educated commentary," Stephen Gee, ITV’s Daybreak

“Sandro is our schmooziest LA inside,” BBC Radio

“Sandro is one of the busiest showbiz reporters in Hollywood where he freelances for the BBC, magazines and newspapers, hosts Q&A’s with movie stars and writes books. His appointments diary is a celebrity-watcher’s dream and his address book bulges with A-listers,” Lancashire Life

“The bright lights of Blackpool to the glamour of Hollywood is not a path many have travelled but it’s one that’s been taken by well known celebrity journalist and showbiz biographer Sandro Monetti,“ Darryl Smith, Scottish Sunday Post

“Being Colin Firth these days means being the most popular man in the room. His performance in The King’s Speech was a career capping achievement,” Entertainment Weekly

“Colin Firth is that actor women love and who guys think is really good,” Los Angeles Daily News

“Colin Firth is the king of the silver screen,” Daily Mail

‘’Colin's innate decency, self-discipline and self-deprecation make him into the archetypal Englishman. His kind, thoughtful, passionate soul makes him into Everyman,” Dame Helen Mirren

3.0 out of 5 stars Filmography May 31 2012
By LovesToReadBooks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you want a complete listing of Firth's films, costars, directors, etc you might find this book interesting. If you're looking for anything personal, intimate, or that hasn't already been published on the Internet and approved by PR firm or something, this book isn't it. Bore-city even if writing okay.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Read! April 10 2012
By NAhdHac - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You think you know Colin Firth through his regal mannerisms and eloquent way of self-expression. However, if you haven't read The Man Who Would Be King, you will never know the real Colin Firth. Monetti's interpretation of Firth's roots and the detailed descriptions of his most intriguing ordeals bring the actor's journey to life and you will leave the pages of this book feeling as if Firth is an old friend. Monetti's work is to be commended, and I recommend this read to anyone and everyone!

1.0 out of 5 stars Badly written Jan. 13 2012
By S. McEwen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a dreadful book. It is poorly written, jumps all over the place. Also be aware that the author apparently does not like Colin Firth. Avoid. Thank goodness I only paid 99c for this... and it's not even worth that much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Fascinating Nov. 26 2012
By Susan L. Carrier - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am no general follower of movie stars. I got this for free through Pixel of Ink - so I figured, even if I didn't like it, it would be "worth the price." Well it definitely was much more than worth the price of "free."

I really enjoyed reading this book. It is a fan-written e-book, and at times a little bit rough around the edges, but nothing you can't read past. She has done a lot of work researching Colin Firth's biographical data and presents it quite well. I found myself very taken with him as a person, even though I know very little of his body of work other than his starring role in The King's Speech.

I was very glad I read this book after I had finished. Very well done!
