"Herbie J Pilato is a true 'keeper of the flame' for classic TV. In MARY, he’s given us an extensive, humanizing look at one of the medium’s biggest icons; the good, the bad and sometimes, ugly. But it’s real. He’s spoken to all the right people...and I’m betting there’s a lot here that will surprise even the most devoted fans."
- Peter King, Correspondent, CBS News Radio

“What Herbie J Pilato has given us is a one-stop tome that covers everything one could ask for about Moore herself, her colleagues, her relationships, her misfires and triumphs, her self-consciousness and lack of self-esteem in terms of her looks, not to mention her causes like diabetes research and animal rights…[a] very detailed and balanced tribute. Someone needed to write this book and who better than Herbie J Pilato. He knows how to do it.”
