Praise

“Bergreen writes with genuine love and respect for Armstrong’s art….This is likely to be the standard biography of Armstrong for some time.”
–Washington Post

“A full-bodied portrait of the artist and the man that is far more interesting than his already colorful legend.”
–USA Today

“No one has done a better job than Bergreen of making emotional sense of Armstrong’s four marriages and uncounted affairs. . . . The fullest and frankest account of Armstrong to date.”
–Boston Sunday Globe

“A meticulously researched, vibrant biography, which has the potential to become the definitive word on Armstrong’s life and remarkable career.”
–Variety
