    **This review is for the 25th anniversary edition released June 27, 2017. Please note Amazon imported 66 reviews from previous editions. As of today, 12 reviews are of this edition.** I am still reading the book but felt a few notes were worth posting a review. First, not sure if a previous reviewer just got a bad book but my book doesn't seem to have been hastily made and is of good quality. The spine, cover, pages, and paper used (even the paper used on the color pages) are all crisp with no ink smudging, no glue residue, and no stuck/incorrectly cut pages. As for the book itself, the forward is pretty lengthy with some intimacy yet very prominent formality. Not my favorite writing style but I'm glad it's just in the forward. Before purchasing this edition, I tried to find a comparison of all previous editions to see what was specifically added but never could find solid info. This edition is broken into three parts: edited transcripts of Diana's interviews that are in the original publication, a biography, and all aftermath to date since the original 1992 publication. In all, there are 13 chapters, the last being titled "The People's Princess." Hopefully this will help someone else considering this as a first read (like myself) or an updated edition. Diana's transcripts are indeed somewhat scattered but expected since she wasn't directly interviewed; however, it is still easy to move along with her and I enjoyed it better this way since they are her direct words and storytelling. The biography goes into detail about her birth up to adulthood with an intricate detail about her blood lines (which I never knew but thought neat). Will update when I'm finished reading the book in its entirety. So far, worth the money spent.

    Princess' own words in the beginning of this book were moving but disjointed and I wanted to hear more from her heart. The rest of the book by the author filled in some of the gaps. I have always been fascinated by her and admired and loved her. I am unconvinced her death was just a car accident; I believe her death was untimely and so tragic. I am outraged with how she was treated by Prince Charles and the Royal Family, and caused to feel such rejection and so unloved and unimportant. Her bulimia, insecurities, jealousy of Camilla, and ultimately the failure of her marriage simply makes her more human and relatable to ordinary people. I wanted her marriage to work out--her wedding and dress was incredible and we all wanted the fairy tale to come true--but it came smashing down. Yet her pain is part of why people loved her. She seemed to be such a loving, good mom and I was glad to see how her sons still honor her in this book. I thought this was a very interesting book and recommend it for Diana-admirers. She will not be forgotten.

    Diana: Her True Story - In Her Own Words is a heartbreaking insight into the life and mind of one of the most beloved people the world has ever seen. Delving deep into some of Diana's most life-changing moments- both good and bad- is almost breathtaking. Reading the words on the page as she actually said them- completely breathtaking. I had to stop myself several times from becoming emotional while reading this book, as it reads quite differently than anything else I've come across. To hear what she felt, not from another's perspective, not from a third-party writing about her, but to actually read the words Diana once said is chilling. To read what she thought and why she did things, in a totally undiluted manner feels almost intrusive. Andrew Morton couldn't have written this book better if he tried, it flows together seamlessly. I'm so glad I decided to read this, I can't recommend it enough.

    Princess Diana is one of the world’s most beloved princesses. Even twenty years after her death, she is still one of the world’s most prolific royals. Her legacy for humanitarian work still continues to fascinate and inspire millions. In this biography of Princess Diana, Mr. Morton gives an insight into this tragic but fascinating woman. He chronicles her tribulations as well as the legacy she leaves behind. He portrays Diana as a woman who felt the pressure of being royal and always sought to find her freedom and happiness. After reading Diana: Her True Story in Her Own Words, Diana seemed real and very human. Her life was not as glamorous as the photographs made her out to be. I could empathize with her on the problems she faced, such as her parent’s divorce, her struggles with bulimia, her reactions to Camilla, and her unhappy marriage with Charles. This biography also showed Diana’s flaws; she was idealistic, naive, rebellious, and temperamental. However, she was determined, hard-working, and a loving individual. She was a woman who battled with mental illness, the pressure of the press and the royal family, and with her unhappiness. Diana had very low-self-esteem. Throughout her life, her truest enemy was herself and she always strove to find confidence. Therefore, this biography shows a very intimate portrait of the “People’s Princess”. The biography is well-written. I was so enthralled by Princess Diana’s story that I read it in one sitting. I also liked how the author put together a collection of interviews that Diana had recorded. I loved that because it is like Diana’s autobiography and it gives us more of an insight into the princess. Therefore, I highly recommend Diana: Her True Story in Her Own Words. Mr. Morton not only shows Princess Diana as a complex individual, but also why Diana has captured the hearts of millions. You can see why Diana’s long-lasting legacy still carries on to this day.
