Overview

Lucille Ball FAQ: Everything Left to Know about America's Favorite Redhead by Barry Monush, James Sheridan

(FAQ). Although countless books and articles have been written about Lucille Ball, most people know only the surface details of her personal life and some basic facts about her popular television series. Lucille Ball FAQ takes us beyond the "Lucy" character to give readers information that might not be common knowledge about one of the world's most beloved entertainers. It can be read straight through, but the FAQ format also invites readers to pick it up and dig in at any point. Background information and anecdotes are provided in such categories as
• People Lucy found funny
• Lucy at home: her various residences throughout the years
• Movie/television/radio/theater projects that never materialized
• Lucy's off-camera romantic attachments James Sheridan and Barry Monush go beyond the well known facts, making this an indispensable book for all Lucille Ball fans!

I have a feeling people are going to buy more than one copy of this book because it is going to be THE go to reference guide for anything to do with Lucy. Lucille Ball FAQ has the answers to just about any question ever asked about Lucille Ball and then some!1 And there are great, rare pictures too! No library on film or television would be complete without a copy of this book.

I've been a major Lucy fan for years and years and I thought I knew it all. This book, "Lucille Ball FAQ," made me change my mind. I've read probably every book written about Lucy and seen all the documentaries, but this books has details and information that aren't found anywhere else. I completely disagree with an earlier review that says there are no new facts here. There most certainly are. It's an interesting, lovingly written book about America's favorite redhead.

This book is titled "Lucille Ball FAQ: Everything Left to Know About America's Favorite Redhead"..... ok well if you're a Lucy fan to start with, everything in this book is OLD NEWS. Nothing fresh has been "discovered" or is discussed. You can save your $ and google whatever facts you want to know. You'd be better off. The first part of the book begins with the arrogant writer describing how he was an INFANT when Lucy passed. He also goes into describing how he watched I Love Lucy, BLAH BLAH BLAH, YAWN! So pretty much...yet another leach profiting off of Lucy's success. To be honest, people bought this book because of Lucy. Not to hear some lame stories, of a Joe Schmo's childhood recalling. No one cares. Sorry for the harsh review, but it honestly makes me sick that people believe they can pile together a bunch of "FAQ's" and this garbage gets published. It's a total let down, to fans that actually appreciate Lucy's legacy.
