    This was an ok book. I wish it had focused more on him. It was mainly about the movies he has played in. I didn't really see any secrets in the book. If your looking for a book to learn more about Johnny Depp well this isn't it.

    This probably has to be the best Johnny Depp biography about Johnny Depp that I have ever read. I really enjoyed the quotes that it talked about. And also it talked about some things that I have never heard about Johnny Depp before. Which was very interesting.

    If you want to know about 'The Secret World of Johnny Depp' do not buy this book. If you want to briefly know about the films he has made then this book is for you. Deeply disappointed.

    This was a well written Autobiography outlining his career right up til 2006. The main focal point was on his acting a musical career with aspects of personal life mixed in. It was enjoyable to read with some amazing quotes not just from him but others. I enjoyed how this biography allowed us to see why Johnny was picked for the roles he played and how he made acquaintances along the way either through music or acting. It was very insightful and I look forward to seeing if there is a more recent This was a well written Autobiography outlining his career right up til 2006.

    More about Drops roles than his life I chose this rating because the story was more about his various roles and issues surrounding the making of his movies. Informative but too much about the movies and scenes. The title did say the secret world not the secret life. It gave me an insight on how he operates in his environment.

    Tytuł pozycji "Johnny Depp - sekretne życie" sugeruje pogoń za sensacją. Albo tani chwyt marketingowy. W przypadku dzieła Nigel'a Goodall'a zdecydowanie to drugie. Czytelnicy czekający na odkrycie drugiej twarzy charyzmatycznego Johnny'ego zawiodą się. Książka nie zawiera niczego czego już by nie napisano, opublikowano i powtórzono czterdzieści razy. Język przekazu też nie zachwyca. Istnieją biografie, które czyta się jak powieść sensacyjną, ta do tego gatunku nie należy.

Czytelnicy czekający na odkrycie drugiej twarzy charyzmatycznego Johnny'ego zawiodą się. Książka nie zawiera niczego czego już by nie napisano, opublikowano i powtórzono czterdzieści razy. Język przekazu też nie zachwyca. Istnieją biografie, które czyta się jak powieść sensacyjną, ta do tego gatunku nie należy. Pozycja literacko plasuje się w okolicach bloga na nieco wyższym poziomie. Powtarzają się błędy stylistyczne i gramatyczne (tłumaczenie panów Arkadiusza Belczyka i Przemysława Hejmeja). Do tego dochodzą błędy merytoryczne oraz nieścisłości związane z opisywanymi zdarzeniami bądź filmami. Najwyraźniej nie pomogła konsultacja Tomasza Raczka. Najgorszą stroną "Sekretnego Życia" są streszczenia filmów. Fabuła jest opisywana dość dokładnie (zwłaszcza późniejsze filmy) a w kilku przypadkach (np. "Public Enemies") autor nie mógł się powstrzymać się przed opowiedzeniem zakończenia. Dlatego serdecznie odradzam tę pozycję tym, którzy nie widzieli wszystkich filmów Deppa a chcieli by je kiedyś zobaczyć. Ostatni rozdział został dopisany przez Elżbietę Ciaparę, która równie średnio poradziła sobie z tematem, nie odbiegając tym samym od przyjętej konwencji. Podsumowując: najwyraźniej zapomniano, że do pisania biografii potrzebny jest talent pisarski i dziennikarski. Nie jestem przekonana, czy cena 44,90 (Empik) nie jest zbyt wygórowaną kwotą za 411 stron bloga na papierze.

    A fairly rushed biography, clearly written and published with the design to capitalise on the success of Pirates of the Caribbean and its sequels. There were numerous spelling and grammar mistakes made throughout.

    Umm how can you not love a book about the most wonderful actor on the face of the earth. Just kidding. Great book I read it for a project. It gave a real idea of who he is but didn't make you feel as though you were knowing things about someone that they didn't want you to know.

    It helped me understand better Johnny's personality and all he had to go through to obtain a success that he never really pursued. Interesting, althoug, personally, a bit hard to follow sometimes with so many names of people I don't know and references.

    It started really good, but last 30% of the book was just copy/paste from Johnny's movies with no additional background data (totally opposite to the first half).

    Non-fiction. Biography. I love Johnny Depp but this was not good. Can tell that the author just read magazine articles and wrote this. Depp was born in Kentucky, June 9, 1963.

    A fascinating window into the mystical Deppths of one of the most diverse actors of this age. Highly recommended for Deppheads though it is a little outdated having been written in what, 2006?

    An OK biography with some good photos. It goes up to when he did Sleepy Hollow. Got a bit repetitive at the end.

    Excellent biography and insight into the mysterious man that is Johnny Depp. I love that he isn't afraid to speak his mind, the quotes from the man himself often made me smile :)
