A hit book for sure!” Douglas Brinkley, New York Times bestselling author

“[An] unfailingly respectful and journalistically honest chronicle…Where this book breaks ground is in its ability to humanize these colossal celebs…Reads like a Shakespearean drama.” USA Today
“[An] entertaining, blow-by-blow account of the life and times of an epic Hollywood couple…There is no shortage of saucy anecdotes in Furious Love.” Wall Street Journal
“Life outdoes movie melodrama in this raucous, intimate, dual biography of Hollywood's ultimate It Couple…Here is that rare love story that holds one’s interest beyond the wedding—and a reminder, after the thin gruel of Brangelina, of what a feast celebrity can be.” Publishers Weekly
