"In a world of so many film critics that it is dizzying to contemplate, one of the rare figures that stands out is Betty Jo Tucker. Her new book is not, I repeat NOT just the average book written by a critic to either get closer to a celebrity or to treat the work of the actor like the pinnacle of the craft. A TRUE MAVERICK guides us through the artistry and the sometimes-turbulent life, private and public, of one of American Cinema's most talented actresses."
"As you turn the pages of A TRUE MAVERICK, you realize how much a maverick the author is herself."
"Ms. Tucker focuses a special section of the book on The Myelin Project, and even has stated that all proceeds she receives from the sale of this book will go to this worthwhile fund. Susan Sarandon became involved with The Myelin Project while making the film 'Lorenzo's Oil.'"
"A TRUE MAVERICK is as far-reaching and as endearing as Betty Jo Tucker herself."
