I think it’s perfectly safe to say that this is the best book that will ever be written about Astaire and Rogers—Pauline Kael
One of the best studies of popular culture anyone has written—Newsweek
One of the best-loved works in dance literature. In prose that perfectly rises to the thrill of these classics, she herself produced a classic—New York Times (2009)
