    I am having a very hard time doing a review of this because I read it on my kindle not hardcover. Anyway, here is one more try to do a book review. I was so happy to find out that Patty Duke had been working on a book with a friend before she died. It is about her sixty year career in ...

    Shortly before her death in 2016 at age 69, actress Patty Duke (with coauthor William J. Jankowski) surveyed her six-decade career on TV, film and stage and produced IN THE PRESENCE OF GREATNESS. It is a delightful, engaging and upbeat salute to the talented people with whom she worked...

    Being a long time Patty Duke fan I knew I would like this book. However after reading it, I found I loved it. It is a warm, honest, respectful, reverent, and witty recollection of Hollywood legends, told by a legend herself. Ms. Duke truly respected talent and goodness in people and it...

    Fantastic and honest stories about the people Anna worked with during her long career. Her humor shines and her spirit soars. I'm sorry that she's no longer with us but am so happy she and Bill were able to document her legacy. ...

    Surprised myself by not loving this book. I found it just a great big Thank you letter to everyone that Patty Duke worked with. Definitely good spirited but a little shallow for what we know her life was. ...

    Entertaining read of Patty's remembrances of her work with legends of the Golden era. I enjoyed it and in the process learned a little more about Patty and her career. ...

    While I enjoyed this book of recollections, there was a lot of repetition. But I am a lifelong fan of Anna's so I appreciate the time and effort writing this took.. ...

    I am having a very hard time doing a review of this because I read it on my kindle not hardcover. Anyway, here is one more try to do a book review. I was so happy to find out that Patty Duke had been working on a book with a friend before she died. It is about her sixty year career in ...

    Shortly before her death in 2016 at age 69, actress Patty Duke (with coauthor William J. Jankowski) surveyed her six-decade career on TV, film and stage and produced IN THE PRESENCE OF GREATNESS. It is a delightful, engaging and upbeat salute to the talented people with whom she worked...

    Being a long time Patty Duke fan I knew I would like this book. However after reading it, I found I loved it. It is a warm, honest, respectful, reverent, and witty recollection of Hollywood legends, told by a legend herself. Ms. Duke truly respected talent and goodness in people and it...

    Fantastic and honest stories about the people Anna worked with during her long career. Her humor shines and her spirit soars. I'm sorry that she's no longer with us but am so happy she and Bill were able to document her legacy. ...

    Surprised myself by not loving this book. I found it just a great big Thank you letter to everyone that Patty Duke worked with. Definitely good spirited but a little shallow for what we know her life was. ...

    Entertaining read of Patty's remembrances of her work with legends of the Golden era. I enjoyed it and in the process learned a little more about Patty and her career. ...

    While I enjoyed this book of recollections, there was a lot of repetition. But I am a lifelong fan of Anna's so I appreciate the time and effort writing this took.. ...
