The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe as far as I have learned this is the most accurate book of Marilyn's real life, not what people imagined or thought up or told stories about but what actually happened. She is far more relatable then most people would imagine. This is by far one of my favorite books I have ever read in my life and although it's long ITS SO WORTH IT!
