    One of the best Lucy-Desi books out there!

    This is one of the best books ever written about this legendary team. A very informative, personal account of the lives and careers of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. Very little is known about Lucy and Desi, and this book gives you a peek into what their lives were like, onscreen and off. Lucille was NOT a self-centered b****, but rather a woman who had been hurt immensely and had to keep her guard up in order to keep from getting hurt again. This book will take you through the lives of TV's favorite couple. You'll see what their life was like offscreen, both together and separately. It gives interesting information about Desi's drinking, the creation and crumble of Lucy and Desi's Camelot Desilu, the disentigration of the not-so-fairytale marraige, and their lives after I Love Lucy and after eachother. I cried so hard at the end of this book. Lucy and Desi really loved eachother to their dying days, and it showed. But their love just wasn't enough to keep them together in the end. This is a wonderful book if you are a Lucy and/or Desi fan. It's a magical experience. Read this book; you won't regret it.

    Amazing

    This book gives you a great insight into the lives of Desi and Lucille. Their ups and downs and how even when it was over they still loved each other. You have got to read this book, it is great.

    A Great Tribute

    I thought this book was a very moving tribute to this very famous couple. I am a very big fan of Lucille Ball and I love Lucy and I have read a lot of books on this subject. I'd say this is one of the best yet! I would recommend it to anybody who is an I love Lucy fan or who just like to read about tv's most famous couple of a ll time.
