I originally wrote this review for a library. Reposting here:
I Love Lucy: A Celebration of All Things Lucy by Elisabeth Edwards was released to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the t.v. series. This is a beautiful 255 page coffee table book filled with photos. As an introduction, it delves into the fads, trends, popular tv, and popular musicians of 1950s America.

"I Love Lucy" is one of my favorite t.v. shows. This book was a Christmas gift a couple years ago and I finally got around to reading it. I wanted to learn 1) What was Lucille Ball like? 2) What was life like on the set? 3) What made the show successful? and 4) How did the show make history?

Edwards answered all these questions and then some. I especially loved the trivia chapter, the recipes of food talked about on the show, and the personal tributes in the last chapter. It was an enjoyable read

Loved Loved Loved this book! It is has everything Lucy that you could ever wish to know! The pictures are wonderful and hilarious. The book has snippets of episodes with pictures and descriptions on every page. My favorite part of the book was the lyrics to the songs that Desi "AKA: Ricky" would sing on the show. That completely made the entire book for me. :)

This is the best I Love Lucy book I've read! Tons of photos from Lucy & Desi's show and their personal/family life. Loved ALL of it! If you're a fan of the show (or of Lucille Ball), you HAVE to grab a copy of this book from the bookstore or library.

This book is a high quality beauty that can be used successfully in anyone's coffee table. I am a deep admirer of Lucille Ball; and this book does her beauty real justice.
