Only Dustin Hoffman's public life is what this biography is made of. The author haven't done any major research in the actor's private life before (and after) he hit the mainstream with 'The Graduate' in 1967. There's mostly trivia regarding his most important films, such as 'Midnight cowboy' (1969), 'Papillon' (1973), 'Lenny' (1974) and 'Kramer vs. Kramer' (1979). The book, published in 1984, ends with the movie released that year, 'Tootsie'.
