Ryan O'Neal and Farrrah Fawcett's story begins with the youthful optimism of new love between two charismatic and beautiful stars. Soon, though, reality intrudes: troubled children from previous marriages; Farrah's first husband, Lee Majors, reluctant to leave; mismatched career trajectories; the birth of their son; and drug abuse -- all leading to an inevitable break-up.

After a relationship with a younger woman, midlife fears of growing older, and his own leukemia diagnosis, Ryan realized that he had cast aside his true soulmate, and he and Farrah started a new life together. When Farrah was diagnosed with cancer in 2006, Ryan stood by her side through grueling treatment, and ultimately faced the heartbreaking discovery that even his love couldn't save Farrah.

No other couple has drawn the same unwavering fascination of fans and tabloid journalists alike for over three decades -- and no one can tell their behind-the-headlines story like Ryan O'Neal. Written with candor, emotional honesty, and above all, deep love for his adored Farrah, Both of Us is the heartbreaking story of a true Hollywood fairy tale, providing the adrenaline of a great romance novel -- and the heartache and inspiration of a true confession.
