    1. I won this as a First Reads giveaway. It arrived by certified mail, so I felt obligated to put it ahead of all my other books. It's a well-written biography of the director who made John Wayne famous. Honestly, he seemed like a bit of an asshole at times. I am giving it five stars because the writing is very good, and fans of John Wayne (and old movies in general) will enjoy this book a lot. I don't think *I* will read it again, but it would be a great addition to the collections of people who [...]

    2. Not only are Joseph Malham's words inspiring, but he offered me a window into the private world of John Ford which has changed the way I watch and interpret his movies.

    3. I believe a good biography should raise more questions than it answers. This is not to say that a biography should be incomplete, or lack enough details to make me feel like I’ve come to know the subject intimately. But, when an in-depth examination, such as John Ford, Poet in the Desert, by Joseph Malham, leaves me with the desire to know even more about the subject and continue my search past the last page, I know it’s been a good read. Malham trains his eye on Ford, the legendary filmmake [...]

    4. I will say, neither John Ford nor John Wayne interested me very much. In fact, I never knew the name "John Ford" before reading this book. However, the book is an extremely well-written biography of a man who was indeed a natural with film as his medium. Anyone with a distinct interest in Hollywood Golden years or John Wayne or Henry Fonda should take a look!
