I bought the book because I am a huge Dean Martin fan but the book has a much wider appeal. The sisters lives and stories are so interesting and took me back to those wonderful times of the 1970's and beyond.it is an inside look at show business told in a very real way.

This is a great story on many levels. There is all of the flash and glamour of the proverbial story of the small town girls that make it big, traveling and performing with Dean, Frank, and the gang. But there is another layer of depth that makes it more than a photo memory book. It is also about impressionable girls remaining true to themselves and their roots, the strong family ties that seemed to keep them from going off course, and an inside glimpse of the dreams and the character of couple of Dean's infamous showgirls aka the Golddiggers! This story was a welcome respite from current day Tinsel town escapades, it was interesting, upbeat, fun to read.

Format: Paperback
I had the pleasure to be sent the book, Beyond Our Wildest Dreams, "hot off the press" and what a delight! I couldn't put it down. Each page was filled with interesting facts, fabulous photos, and antidotes of the Alberici sisters( who were part of the glamorous Dean Martin Golddiggers). It was wonderful getting peeks into "backstage" with Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and so many more! It was hard to imagine that 2 such young girls could be swept up and have the life they had working with the legends of the entertainment industry at such a young age. And the places... like Acapulco, Monte Carlo, TV shows... all of it so exciting sounding... I was taken on a journey with them.

I highly recommend the book to any young person dreaming of a life in "show business" and definitely all of the Dean Martin and Golddiggers fan club members... I'm into healthy living and exercising and I enjoyed the whole read of the vegetarian lifestyle their patriarch installed in them....it shows. A real "must read".
