Format: Paperback
First of all the cover is awesome, a beautiful picture of the Angels with the Cheryl Ladd picture that I heard Farrah and Cheryl both chose. I bought this book because I collect anything on Farrah Fawcett and the Angels, but I really wanted to read Farrah's and Cheryl's forward, which are great, so are the pictures that Farrah and Cheryl donated to the book. It's fun to see all the advertisements from the show and the great collectibles that were from the show. It's a great way to re-live the series and it makes you wish even more for a Charlie's Angels re-union. Hopefully Farrah will be back to her beautiful self real soon, I do wish her well and hope she feels better and stronger everyday!!! This book is a must for fans of the series!!

I just recieved my copy of Angelic Heaven in the mail the other day and have read it through. Yes, it certainly has it's flaws....typos, sentences that just stop midstream, awkward type set, fuzzy photographs, photos with no captions, photos with mislabeled captions, etc. but it has it's good points too. Although the majority of the material is nothing I didn't already know, I did enjoy the episode guide (perhaps somewhat redundant, it did point out some small items I was unaware of here and there). The ads from TV guide were fun to see again as well as some of Fawcett and Ladd's personal photographs. The book also contains about 25 pages of "Charlie's Angels" merchandise and 8 pages of magazine covers that the Angels have graced, 4 pages of current photos of some of the locations that the series filmed at (including Charlie's office). There is a bio of each Angel as well as for David Doyle, John Forsythe, Aaron Spelling and Leonard Goldberg. There's even a memorial page for David Doyle where the Angels give their thoughts on their departed sidekick. Since the book was written by a fan for the fans, the more controversial elements surrounding the series have been glossed over. It does touch briefly on Fawcett's legal battles with the producers after she quit and on the investigation into the alleged defrauding of Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood (co-owners of the show) by the show's producers. Jackson's increasing difficulty on the set after being forced to give up her role in Kramer vs. Kramer is given only one small paragraph and her hot/cold relationship with Ladd is never even mentioned. Overall, the book itself probably rates a 3 star rating.Read more ›

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book contains interesting facts and trivia about "Charlie's Angels", along with contributions from Farrah Fawcett and Cheryl Ladd. The highlight of Angelic Heaven are the personal photos of Farrah and Cheryl. Other than some previously unpublished pictures, there's nothing new here. Additionally, the book has many grammatical errors, which become distracting after reading too many poorly written or incomplete sentences. For a more comprehensive and a better well-written book about "Charlie's Angels" (with a brief introduction by Jaclyn Smith), buy "The Charlie's Angels Casebook" by David Hofstede.

ANGELIC HEAVEN: A FAN'S GUIDE TO CHARLIE'S ANGELS is as Lighthearted and Fun as the TV show!

If you're a newfound Angels junkie or merely "Angel-curious" than there's no better book to catch you up to speed on the 1970's TV phenomenon. The use of the word "guide" in the title of this book is accurate since it provides a clear and brief history of the show's creation, it's "concept", a breakdown of all five seasons' episodes, and biographies on all of it's eight main characters. (Also, provided are biographies of cast members before and after their time on the show. Also, please note there's nothing about the motion pictures. It's a purely classic Angels read.)

If you're already a hard-core fan of the TV show and have seen just about all there is to see Angel-wise, please know this book isn't a copycat of Jack Condon and David Hofstede's 2000 publication CHARLIE'S ANGELS: CASEBOOK. Whereas, their book was low on pictures and great for an indepth read into the show and the people involved, this publication isn't something you'll cosy up to before bedtime - you'll devour within a day or two much like a kid with a comic book and find yourself skimming back over it again and again. Why? It's literally filled from front to back with EYE CANDY of rare or never published shots of the cast, along with TV guide ads, toy trade ads, magazine covers, etcetera. Some of it's photos were actually donated to the author Mike Pingel by Cheryl Ladd. (Alongside those pictures you'll find her personal remarks. Anyone else smile when seeing a youngTori Spelling hanging out with the Angels?)

Add to the rare photos all the minutia of off-the-wall trivia, than this book is like comfort food for most any Angels fans - new or lifelong.

This book is very well researched and put together. Yes, my copy has typos and errors, but those can be overlooked when you see the wealth of information and photos here! I recommend this book very highly to any true "Charlie's Angels" fan. I've been a fan since I was 3-4 years old!
