Lots of great stories, but needs editing for typo errors

This book contains many amazing facts and stories about both Lucy and Desi, from birth to death!

Covering Desi's privileged upbringing in Cuba to the political turmoil which brought his now-destitute family to the United States, his is a fascinating tale.

Equally fascinating is Lucy's life, her many attempts at fame from Broadway to Hollywood, and support of her family.

Receiving significant treatment as well are the stories of their tumultuous relationship, the Desilu studio, and their desire for children which almost never came true.

The main issue is a need for editing. Extraneous hyphens, gross misspellings, and formatting errors made for great distraction during reading. Otherwise, a wonderful book. ( )
