This book is a joy to own! The photos are so beautiful and amazing! I don't usually re-read many books. But, I never tire of reading it! There is not not much text (less than 30 pages). Over 2,500 photos is the biggest photo collection of Marilyn I have ever seen! I love this book and I highly recommend it to all Marilyn fans!
My husband bought me this book as a present for our anniversary as I am a huge Marilyn fan. I love this book and I keep going back and looking through it every so often. Marilyn looks absolutely beautiful in all of these photos. This book is a must have for any Marilyn fan as the collection of photos are stunning! Of all the Marilyn books I have, this by far is my favorite of them all!
A new, more mature Marilyn had emerged and with a halo of light around her each photograph explores the moods and intimacy of a woman loved by the world still unforgettable nearly 50 years later. An extraordinary look at Marilyn in the final days of her life. A treasure!

This is an odd book because Bert Stern comes off as an "I coulda fucked her, but I didn't" sort of guy. But if you take the commentary with a grain of salt, it's a fascinating and oddly heartbreaking series of photos.
