“Stunning black and white photos of Lansing by Maurice Seymour, the era’s Superstar Photographer, make this book a collectors dream.”

“The press you are getting for your book just keeps getting bigger and better. I am so happy for you, and you know that your beloved Joi is, too. I have told you more than once that yours is an important work, and I mean it just as much today. Somehow, it is more than just the story of your and Joi's love and life together. it is much, much more than that. Maybe the full meaning and the full importance of the book will not even be known right away. But, rest assured, it WILL stand the test of time. It is a breakthrough book, a singular story that to my knowledge, has never been quite told the way you have told it. I hope you are warmed and fulfilled by every glowing tribute to your work, and to your and Joi's love. Please keep sharing these wonderful reviews with me. I am proud of you, and happy beyond measure for you, too.”

“Having lived a lifetime in the Hollywood spotlight, it’s always interesting to read about other actors and actresses who followed the same path. I never met Joi Lansing, and I don’t recall ever seeing her, although I was familiar with her name. This new biography of Lansing is very readable, and provides another peek behind the curtain of a Hollywood star’s life. It always appears so happy, problem-free, and glamorous looking from the outside in. Most of the time, it is just as difficult, challenging, lonely, and discouraging as anyone’s life might be. Sometimes, it’s even worse. This is a fascinating story about a very beautiful actress, and I think readers will be delighted and quite surprised.”
