Jeff Bridges is the coolest dude on the planet—a loving husband and father and one of our greatest actors. But Bridges’ image as The Dude from The Big Lebowski masks his true identity. Now, for the first time, author Bill Fleck tells Bridges’ story. Not the Dude (Part 1) takes you on the first part of his journey, from his unusual birth to his Oscar nomination for 1984’s Starman. It’s a fascinating, funny, and ultimately uplifting tale that you won’t want to put down.
