I was excited to read this book, but was disappointed by the presentation of information. The author throws around a lot "naturally" "obviously" "of course" and "clearly" without citing sources or explaining why. When discussing a figure as large as MM and with so many different stories out there, I find it annoying that Badman states he has the one and only truth about her death. I enjoyed Lois Banner's biography of MM much more. She cites her sources, places the actions and attitudes of MM and the people around her within their historical context, and doesn't claim to know the the truth, admitting that based on the evidence she thinks x while it could be y or z. Marilyn Monroe: The Final Years is definitely not one of my favorite MM biographies. I'm wary when someone claims to know the truth of something that can't be definitively known -- just seems like a line to sell books with.
A really great account of Monroe's life without a lot of personal biases' Defiantly a good read
