"Over the past three decades, Alec Baldwin has established himself as one of Hollywood's most gifted, hilarious, and controversial leading men. His work in popular movies--including Beetlejuice, Working Girl, The Hunt for Red October, Glengarry Glen Ross, The Cooler, and It's Complicated--and his roles as Jack Donaghy on Tina Fey's irreverent series 30 Rock and as Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, have made him both a household name and a deeply respected actor. In Nevertheless, Baldwin transcends his public persona, shedding light on facets of his life he has long kept private. In this honest, affecting memoir, he introduces us to the Long Island child who felt burdened by his family's financial struggles and his parents' unhappy marriage; the Washington, DC, college student gearing up for a career in politics; the self-named "Love Taxi" who helped friends solve their romantic problems while neglecting his own; the young soap actor learning from veterans of the theater; the man struggling with a brief addiction to drugs and alcohol; the husband and father who acknowledges his failings and has battled to overcome them; and the consummate professional for whom work is everything. Throughout, he shares an insider's anecdotes from the sets of beloved movies, insights into what the world's foremost performers do on stage and screen, and stories of the people, famous and not, who have had the greatest influence on his work and personal happiness. Told with his signature candor, astute observational savvy, and devastating wit, Nevertheless reveals an Alec Baldwin we have never fully seen before."--Jacket.

With a life story that would seem has been in public domain I imagine it was quite difficult for Mr. Baldwin to edit himself on various chapters of it . I have to commend Alec for his self-constraint, especially when it comes to his politics , and even more so, his family. I am a father of an adult daughter myself and I know there are times I would not want our relationship headlining gossip news, such as the telephone message he left for his daughter, exposed to all.
A good read/listen if you're at all interested in the man.
