Despite the really horrific artist rendering of Lucille Ball gracing a color of yellow only suitable for the box of Lemonheads, this was a great book when I read it. Lots of interesting tidbits about the creation of the show, how Lucy was a controlling freak and her husband a genius asshole. Best part is the episode guide in the back, which has a bunch of trivia that takes up room in my brain to this day.
The "I Love Lucy' Book is divided into two, hefty sections : 12 chapters devoted to the show’s history and a detailed episode guide called the I Love Lucy Log. When I started reading this book I didn't expect to pick up much new information because like many other I Love Lucy Fans, I have the series on DVD, seen specials about it, participated in online discussions and have read articles online.

My aunt Kathy bought me this book because she knows how much I love Lucy so I treasure it. I have to say that I wish that I could erase anything from my mind that shines even tiny bit of negative light on Lucille Ball or the show, true or not. This book is loaded with information and photos.
If you want to learn all about the greatest television show of all time-- "I Love Lucy," then this is the book to read. It provides short biographies of all the major players in the show and then provided a brief, but detailed, account of how "I Love Lucy" came to fruition. Finally, it provides a detailed synopsis and account of every episode of "I Love Lucy." Highly recommend.

Pictures are great as a companion to the series.
It kind of read like a bad history book, it's made me a little hesitant to look for other biographies well at least written by people who weren't really there.
If you are a huge fan of the show and the cast then I would recommend this. As for a book to read just for the heck of it, no, I would not recommend it.
This is my I Love Lucy TV show Bible. It has synopsis of every episode, little known facts, etc. This is essential to every I Love Lucy fan's library!

I thought that this was a prertty good book. It includes summaries of every episode from 1951 to 1957.

A great look into the making of "I Love Lucy". Many of the chapters parallel a season of the TV series.
Must have reference book for any I Love Lucy Fan - detailed info on all the episodes
