This is a GREAT book.
First of all, I was expecting a much smaller book when I heard it came with
a CD of her music. Instead it is quite large and there were
several rarer photos which I liked. The whole layout is very
pleasing to the eye.
It is a different kind of Marilyn book. It is also a book
about Hollywood so it might appeal to a larger group. The
authors talk about Hollywood in general and the stars that were
famous during various times in Marilyn's life. Of course, it isn't
perfect and there are some rather glaring text mistakes.
However, I think the concept behind the book and the great photos
make up for that. It does come with a CD of 20 Marilyn songs.
I expected the book to focus more on her music because of this
but it didn't. It is a unique book that I would recommend even
though it features one of the most overused Marilyn photos on the cover.
The author had contacted me last year for permission to use a
photo of my Marilyn calendars he saw on my website.
They appear on page 107 as a FULL PAGE!!!!
I was very excited to see this. I was also thrilled to see
that MarilynMonroe.ca was listed in the resources section as one of
the best websites :)
