''This is a book that wound up teaching me a great deal about Hollywood, the social history of California, the movie business, the trials of female actors in American show business, and the life of a woman who has been so mythologized that often the real woman is obscured from actual view.'' --Erica Jong for Washington Post Book World
''Spoto has given Monroe the treatment she deserves. At last she emerges not as a goddess but as a human being in this extraordinary volume.'' --Daily Telegraph (London)
''Provocative!'' --Entertainment Weekly
