"Tippi" Hedren's real name is Nathalie Kay Hedren. She is a fashion-model-turned-actress.

Hedren was "discovered" by famed film-maker, Alfred Hitchcock, who starred her in 2 of his films.

In this memoir "Tippi" tells her life story which certainly has both its ups and downs.

You know, it almost seems like a natural impulse when one sits down to read Tippi Hedren's memoirs, that they are first, and foremost, going to be wanting to check out the chapters where she (as a naive, young actress) was dealing directly with famed filmmaker, Alfred Hitchcock.

'Cause, believe me, if Hedren's face-to-face encounters with Hitchcock don't alter (even slightly) your overall opinion of said director, then you must be even more blase and jaded about matters like harassment than you had originally thought.

All-in-all - Hedren's biography is certainly well-worth a read. It is definitely written with plenty of insight and intelligence. And many of the chapters that have nothing to do with Hitchcock are interesting enough in their own right.

This book also includes a 16-page photo gallery, too.

This is a very enjoyable read, she is a remarkable woman, very strong and creative and resourceful. Highly recommend this autobiography, I feel like she left a lot out and would like to know more.
