George Clooney: Anatomy of an Actor Hardcover – March 7, 2016
by Jeremy Smith (Author)


A comprehensive study of George Clooney's work through the lens of ten of his most iconic roles.
A new title in the fascinating Anatomy of an Actor series from world-renowned cinema magazine Cahiers du cinema.
This book explores the career of George Clooney (b.1961). A TV heartthrob doctor for five years, he made one of the most successful transitions from television to being a critically acclaimed, Oscar-winning film actor starring in both mainstream and art-house films.
An accessible text combines both a narrative and analytical dimension and is illustrated by 300 film stills, set photographs and film sequences The book will appeal to enthusiastic moviegoers as well as serious cinephiles, fans, and those who want to become actors.

That looks very interesting.  Has anyone ever written a book about George?  His work?  I've only read the unauthorized bio about him that is online.

Wonder if the author had access to George directly for his research.

There are a number of books written about George, Donna.
1. George Clooney A Biography by Jeff Hudson
2. George Clooney A Biography by Joni Hirsch Blackman
3. George Clooney and the Crisis in Darfur by Tamra B. Orr
4. George Clooney The Last Great Movie Star by Kimberly Potts
5. George Clooney by Dana Hendricks
6. George Clooney: From Television Celebrity to the Movie Star, including the Women Who Shared the Screen with Him by Emeline Fort  (That's the title honest)
7. George Clooney and ER by Sam Keenleyside
8. George Clooney The Illustrated Biography by Shana Cushman
9. George Clooney An Illustrated Biography by David Bassom
10.The George Clooney Handbook, Everything you need to know about George Clooney.

There may be more, but this is what I have in my collection.  There is a lot of repetition among the books but they are filled with lots of stories and great pictures.

I will say this though.  None of those books cost $31., nowhere near that.  As much as I love George, I'd never may that much for a book that I'm sure is more of same old, same old.  Price is outrageous. Happy reading.

Thanks for that really good summary, Pattigirl. We did start a thread about books about George which I think didn't get that far: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Wow pattygirl that's quite a collection you have.  I really had no idea there had been that many books written about him.

Anyone stand out to you in particular that was the most revealing?

No really, Donna.  Pictures are great but nothing we haven't seen somewhere before.  The stories are great too, but you can tell most are rehashes from other interviews, just like we get with the "interviews" supposed gotten in the here and now.  Honestly, though, I still loved them all.  Each book had a little something new about our George.
