Publishers Weekly: 'Maintaining that he was a self-created people's hero, the Sterns examine the paradox of the "sex symbol who acted like a choirboy"; his demise in the "issue-oriented" 1960s and rebirth in 1968; his staggering appetite, extravagance and generosity; and apotheosis by fans. This fast-paced, frothy entertainment will gladden the hearts of "true believers."
