This insightful biography of George Clooney looks at his work on-screen, his off-screen activities as a political activist, and the many things that make him stand out from the Hollywood crowd.

George Clooney: A Biography will help students understand that having achieved the clout accorded a Hollywood star, one can use it to fight injustice and create a better world. The biography covers Clooney's life from childhood through adulthood. It looks at the influence of his famous aunt, Rosemary Clooney, and his television-broadcaster father. It reveals his dream of becoming a professional baseball player and his failed tryout with the Cincinnati Reds in 1977.

To create her portrait, author Joni Hirsch Blackman called on sources as diverse as childhood friends, coworkers, and a UN official who traveled with Clooney on his missions as a UN Messenger of Peace. What comes across is a picture of a warm, caring, witty, and intelligent man whose priorities are his craft, his friends and family, and the world around him.
