"A dazzling portrait of an incredible woman. Elizabeth's life was more captivating than any film could ever be." – Demi Moore

"Brower's book takes the reader into the private world of the most famous celebrity of the 20th century. Elizabeth's heart, mind, and passion come vividly alive on each page. We see her as a woman who struggled and ultimately survived to rewrite the playbook on celebrity and power. I never wanted it to end!" – Brooke Shields

"Many should be inspired by all that Elizabeth accomplished as an HIV and AIDS activist. Brower's book took me back to the early days when Elizabeth fought so hard against the stigma surrounding people living with HIV and AIDS. She lived by the credo, 'To whom much is given, much is required.' Elizabeth was not perfect, but she always tried to improve and be better. Her true nature is revealed here in these pages and her life story deserves to be told in a moving and transparent way." – Magic Johnson
