"I just picked up your book at the Lucy Burbank convention [Loving Lucy, August 16-19, 2001] and devoured it. What a delightful read! Thank you for the book and your Web site; I enjoy both immensely." - E. Diana

"['Lucy A to Z'] was a hit at the 'Loving Lucy' Convention. Sold out!" -R.W.

"One doesn't normally read an 'encyclopedia' from cover to cover like others kinds of books, but you will find it hard to put Lucy A to Z down once you start. The brief but informative discussions of everything from Lucy characters and guest stars to details about her personal life are written in a fun and witty style. It makes you wish there was a book like this about every major television sitcom. There's no better source of Lucy stumpers than Lucy A to Z." -Thom Holmes, author of "Fossil Feud: The Rivalry of the First American Dinosaur Hunters"

"'Lucy A to Z' is a treasure of interesting facts, some minutiae, Lucy lists (of her TV Guide and other magazine covers, for example), and much more!" - S. Fischer

Ultimately "Lucy A to Z" celebrates Lucille Ball's real legacy: the gift of laughter.
