I love it. It's humorous and charming while it reflects on the things Hanks has done to make him such a respectable actor, admired and respected by most. For those naysayers, even they eventually have to give in to his warm and affectionate personality when they come to see what an amazing human being he is. My father who is a Vietnamese immigrant with very limited English despite being in America for over 40 years even has a great love and respect for this man. He watches the films on TV starring Hanks and sits there, watches quietly and very intently, recognizing the man behind all those incredible roles that Hanks plays so he can learn to empathize with him. It is very endearing for my father and for me, that is why I bought nearly all of the Tom Hanks films on Amazon just to watch these with my father and to see the effects it has on him who is currently living with the aftermath of his stroke from 2007. Tom Hanks movies do have the tendency to warm your heart and I think that is why it is so easy to love him as an actor. I bought the book so that I could get a small glimpse into his life and to understand who he is as a man.
WHY IS THIS MAN SO FASCINATING?

It was obvious the author did not interview Tom Hanks, but he interviewed many people who knew him at various stages of Hanks' life AND quoted Hanks from many of Hanks' interviews. It felt like a balanced biography, and I found it very interesting.
The Tom Hanks Enigma book review
2015年3月31日 - (Amazon.com)
I may change my review later on but right now I feel the need to review this book as ok.Be warned that this book really makes Tom Hanks look bad especially in the begianning of the book.He comes across as kind of self-absorbed person in many ways and they ended the book with the author saying that he felt like Tom hides himself from people even his wife most of the time,but then alot of times he gives at times to.Despite what I red and this applies to any biography I read I will still watch a tv show,a movie,or listen to the music of the person I read about.Tom Hanks comes across especially these days at a person who focuses on the now and it makes me wonder if he reads,listens to or watching Eckhart Tolle at all.He is a very kind,shy,loving person to an extent anyway.I thought it was very cute how he talked about his wife especially and is taking time now to be a better father then he was at first and keeps in touch with his biological family here and there anyway.I like that Tom Hank's biography book includes pictures as well one of them included a picture of one of his brothers that totally looks like him.I think it should have included more family pictures now.It would have been nice to see a picture of him and Rita his wife getting married and picture of him and Rita with there kids,but the pictures it did have were good.And the book talked about how he grow up a little bit and also the movies and tv shows he was in as well.So if you like Tom Hanks like I do and want to know more about him get this book.
