Smith's updated version of Cosby (1986) is not a tell-all celebrity biography but rather a factual . Smith traces the life and career of megastar Cosby, now in his sixth network series, from his Philadelphia childhood to a football and track career at Temple University to the showbiz limelight.

Sporting a new jacket cover, the book has some new black-and-white photographs; an additional five chapters; and a revised list of Cosby's books, recordings, etc. This narrative concludes with the tragic death of Ennis Cosby.

Ronald L. Smith’s most popular book is The Hero Next Door.

Comedian, actor, and writer Bill Cosby is one of the most successful and respected entertainers in America. Filled with interviews with friends, family, and fellow celebrities, this revealing biography of the great entertainer chronicles his early years in Philadelphia, his marriage, and his spectacular twenty-five-year career.

Twelve-year-old Hoodoo Hatcher was born into a family with a rich tradition of practicing folk magic: hoodoo, as most people call it. But even though his name is Hoodoo, he can't seem to cast a simple spell. Thirteen-year-old Jessamine Grace and her mother make a living as sham spiritualists-until they discover that Jess is a mesmerist and that she really can talk to the dead. Soon she is plunged into the dark world of Victorian London's supernatural underbelly and learns that the city is under attack by ghouls, monsters, and spirit summoners.

**** I wrote this a few years ago and want to update it. It is now clear that Bill Cosby is a serial rapist who took advantage of a myriad of women. He hasn't been found guilty in a court of law - thanks to the clever maneuvering of well-paid legal team and deep pockets.

The book depicts the life of Bill Cosby, and his rise to superstardom. The book gives the reader insight into a myriad of situations, like the attempted rape of Cosby's daughter by Mike Tyson, the sucker punch that Bill Cosby landed on the face of Tommy Smothers, the day Cosby stopped mid-show, and the failures of his movies and various other projects. The book is an honest portrayal of the total life of Bill Cosby - both his failures and successes.

The book offers a glimpse into Cos' breakthrough performances on television and movies. Everything to the I-Spy television series in the 1960s to the movie Ghost Dad in the 1990s. Always under the public microscope, Cosby has been overtly criticized for never being black enough and for not dealing directly with black issues. When the Cosby show first appeared, people criticized the show for being a false representation of a black middle-class family. But Cosby always had a vision for creating a show that would depict human issues and behavior and not black issues nor white issues - just human issues. It is somewhat ironic that the same media that chastises actors and comedians for speaking out on issues, also chastises actors and comedians when they gives us their opinions on issues. For example, the same media that tore down Cosby for not standing up for black issues, also criticized him when he began to lecture and give speeches about the issues he felt strongly about - namely, education and television programming. For Cosby, it has always been a lose-lose situation.
