Joe and Marilyn is a very good book. The research is excellent and the delivery of the story is interesting and easy to follow. I came away from the book knowing much more about two American icons.

If you have ever read C. David Heymann's books, you know that he does extraordinary research and pass that information along in a very informative, creative, and interesting way. Joe and Marilyn is no different. Heymann takes two larger than life American icons and their bigger than life romance and delivers quiet the book. Highly recommended.

I thought I would read about their careers and their romance. Instead, we read about how they became the iconic legends they were and what drew them together. Did not want to put it down.

I read this book in a few days. Extremely detailed and through all their difficulties Mr. DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe dealt with, their love for one another never ceased. Although her death was a tragedy, it surely was true love between them, and that love never died.

I had no idea that Joe was so self centered and treated women so badly. Every one remembers that he sent flowers to Marilyn after her death! So you get the impression that he was caring. I am not done reading the book, I always have 3 or more books that I'm reading at a time.

What should have been a wonderful book about a great love story turned out to be a HUGE disappointment!  There is a large section of  chapter-by-chapter notes at the back of the book, but were they ever even looked at?   The book is full of factual errors, inaccurate  quotes, and the same old hack-job that seems to the norm these days when writing about Marilyn Monroe.  For example, John Huston  is claimed to be the director of "Ladies of the Chorus",  instead of "The Asphault Jungle".  When you have a 'NYC TImes Bestselling  Author' making simple, easy-to-check errors like this, credibility goes right out the window.  There are quotes from 'interviews' with  people who've claimed friendships to MM who her REAL friends have repeatedly discredited over the years, most notably a certain actress who suddenly appeared out of the woodwork along with the late Robert Slatzer, who falsely claimed he was actually married to  Marilyn in 1953!   Joe is dealt with in a slightly better light, but even that's not saying much...There are eight pages of black-and-white photos; with only TWO of Joe & Marilyn together - one being a grainy, unflattering news photo taken on their January 14, 1954 wedding day. I couldn't wait to pack this one up and return it...  Maybe someday someone will REALLY write the story of these Legends in Love.  They - and their love -deserve better than this.
