There is plenty anew within these pages.  Have you ever seen a more comprehensive overview of The Cher Show?  I think not.  The booked is filled with details about what was going on behind the scenes and plenty more. Well worth it and thank Mr Howard for getting this book published!

I was really disappointed in this book. If you are a Cher fan there is nothing new in the book that you didn't know. Everything in here has been in previous books and on tv. Dont' waster your money.
