Publisher's Summary

With so much written, rumored, told, and retold about Marilyn Monroe, it's amazing to consider how much we still don't know. On the screen she was iconic, radiant, yet her talent so rarely earned her respect. In life she was intelligent, brilliant, yet regarded as little more than Hollywood's blond bombshell. But who was the real Marilyn Monroe beyond the hit films and the headlines? Take away Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and The Prince and the Showgirl, Some Like It Hot, and The Misfits, and who was the Norma Jean underneath?
Brilliantly, entertainingly, and movingly, Marilyn Monroe: On the Couch shows just what lay beneath Marilyn's iconic beauty. Dr. Dale, a fictional stand-in for the author, sees Marilyn Monroe as few ever have, both inside and out, and transfers those insights to listeners. It's impossible to imagine anyone providing a better or more complete, intimate, and unforgettable understanding of this truly remarkable, even pivotal figure in film and sexual history.

Good Listen

Although it was pretty sad listening to how needy and delusional she was. It was interesting hearing the other side of what seemed to be a confident woman. I guess she was an even greater actress than everyone thought.

Magnificent Marilyn!

What an insightful book to her last days, her life and her thoughts. Though, maybe a heavy dreamer a remarkable woman and free thinker! Every person should live so freely! A very nice and light listen. Very enjoyable.
