    Amazing Truth

    I purchased this book last week, and I'm already finished. The way the auther tells the story of Bettie's life is so realistic, you feel like you may have known her forever.

    The Real Truth

    I think the book had a lot of fictional charatters along with a uninteresting insight and writing style. Foster's 'tale' on Bettie Page is pure nonsence.

    Tell all book about Bettie

    I have looked at and own many books about Bettie. Usually they are mostly just photos. This was the first book to reveal much of the the mystery of what happened to Bettie. Because of my fondness for Miss Page, this book was at times rather sad. To see someone I care about in distress..Well that hurts, But a lot of the book tells about good times she had and that made me happy. This book made my emotions run the gamut. If you are interested in finding out more about Bettie than you already know, then I recommend this book. Not your average Bettie book.

    The truth may hurt

    It's nice to actually know what happened to the sensacious Bettie Mae Page. I believe Richard Foster did an excellent job in the writing of this book and not sugar coating the truth. I'm glad to know that she was as normal as the rest of us. And not just a perfect pin-up queen.
