Publisher's Summary

When Martha Stewart was under investigation for insider trading and later on trial, the media served up countless gratuitous stories describing her ornery character. Now, Lloyd Allen, Martha's old friend and neighbor, is out to set the record straight. Drawing on hundreds of hours of interviews with Martha, her family, and her close friends and colleagues, Allen reveals the other side of the story, bringing to life the real woman behind the controversial and glamorous public image. From her childhood in New Jersey to the early days of her catering business, her rise as lifestyle guru, the huge success of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, and now two new television shows, Allen weaves together fascinating observations and details that show how Martha made it to the top and stayed there through talent, passion, and hard work.

A view to Martha Stewart's life from the inside

The author is Martha Stewart's friend and he makes that perfectly clear. That said, I think he does a good job at being impartial. Provides good descriptions of how it all started however doesn't go as much into how the business grew after a while.
If you want to know more and learn from Martha Stewart, I find this a good book to start.
