Oh-me! Oh-my!

Believe me - This "tell-all" celebrity-biography about 1950's, Hollywood heart-throb/stud-muffin, Rock Hudson (aka. The Baron of Beefcake) certainly leaves no stone unturned.

To be sure - When it comes to its brutally candid recollection of Hudson's private, sexually promiscuous lifestyle, author, David Bret's frank, up-front story-telling may (perhaps) leave many readers somewhat aghast and, yes, in total disbelief.

As Hudson's grim life-story inevitably unfolds for its final tragic chapter - Bret also takes close examination of Rock's agonizing later years when he was diagnosed with HIV, followed shortly by his painfully lingering death from AIDS in 1985.

This decidedly blunt, to-the-point biography of 300 pages also includes a 16-page photo gallery.
