I purchased Dream Reachers out of pure curiosity. The simplicity of the book made me curious so I ordered it from Amazon not really knowing what I was going to be in for. Without further setup, here is my review...

Dream Reachers by Chase Von and Betty Dravis is an interview collection of artists ranging from writers and actors to poets and musicians. I especially enjoyed the behind the scenes stories at the beginning of the book documenting some of the big stars that Betty Dravis had interviewed.

Dream Reachers is an eclectic combination of interviews filled with talented people who know what it means to persevere over life's difficulties. If you enjoy peeking into the lives of people who are making their dreams come true then this is the book for you. I personally enjoy gleaming wisdom off of folks who have worked hard and the journey that they've gone through to get where they are.There is something for everyone in this book and a great gift for the entertainment junkie. I found Dream Reachers to be inspiring and entertaining. I've heard there will be a sequel and look forward to buying it. Dream Reachers is voyeurism at it's finest.

I give this book a 5 of 5 star rating.

Author Betty Dravis and celebrity interviewer and poet Chase Von have together penned an inspiring collection of interviews with people who not only dare to dream but strive to make their dreams happen, ranging from mega movie star/director/ producer Clint Eastwood to politico Ted Kennedy along with a plethora of actors, actresses, poets, artists, singers, dancers, musicians, photographers and more. One of this reviewer's favorites: the interview with Debra D. Griffin, author and photographer, who lost her battle with cancer. Debra's inspiring words: "Smile and keep a lot of smiling faces around you. Keep busy; take this time to do all your favorite things. Sing and make a joyful noise." Very poignant words from a gifted woman.

One common denominator that stands out with this collection of interviews: the belief that life is a gift. These talented people understand and appreciate they are each unique unto themselves and blessed with life, which inspires them to reach for their dreams, some of whom have made it, others who are well on their way.

Dream Reachers is an intriguing read which will motivate those readers who until now might not have taken that first step toward their dream to reach out and grab for it as well as those working toward their dream to keep going. All readers will enjoy the stories behind the interviews and the powerful message each interview delivers.

The authors generously donate a portion of the profits from the sale of this book to the Breast Cancer Care Research Center.

This book is a real gem. Betty Dravis and Chase Von do an outstanding job of collecting the best interviews and photos complied into one outstanding read.

I found so many of the interviews to be so interesting and touching. I have learned a great deal from reading this book and it is a must have for any industry professional or aspiring artist.

A few of my favorite articles had to be that of Darcy Donavan, Clint Eastwood, Jane Russell, Tanya Tucker, MT Robison, and Kitania Kavey. It is so inspiring to hear these stories and this book is a real testament to what one can accomplish when they put their hearts and minds to it!!

I assure you that you will not be disappointed.

Author Betty Dravis has done an outstanding job of presenting a potpourri of interviews. She takes us on a literary walk, where we brush shoulders with the famous, and those who are on the road to fame. For me, reading about her interview with Clint Eastwood, and Rosalind Russell was a delight:)

This is a unique read and entices one to keep turning the pages. We see Betty shining in both lights as the interviewer and interviewee. This style of presentation made the read seem much more personal, which was refreshing:) At times, I felt as if I was in the room with her...which takes more than just interviewing, it takes talent.

Chase Von's interviews, are more present day, liberally sprinkled with touches of body language. You see the smiles and the laughter. Another unique way of presenting, and keeping it personal.

This is a wonderful book to keep on your shelves, readily available to share with company and friends. I intend to lay it on my coffee table, so I can drift by, have a look, and smile as I recall (especially on a day I "need" it) that dreams really are achievable:)

This book brings to us stories of those we might all have heard of 5-10 years from today.
All of them share a dream, I find it an inspiring content.
It also contains interviews with oldies, famous people like Clint Eastwood, .... written by Betty Dravis, and "delicious" to read. She has the gift of juggling with words, creating an addiction within me to read more.
I felt invited to read more once I got started, wanting more of those inspiring thoughts shared by the creative people featured in this easy to absorb book. Which brings me to Chase Von, who has his very own style of interviewing the nr-1 Stars of tomorrow.
All are people with a dream, a desire and a creative effort. It could be me, your partner, sibling, or....you. Ofcourse reading about people I do know in person brings out excitement, knowing from first hand how talented one is.
Though also the ones who I have never met so far, actually made me feel their excitement and wanting.

Have fun reading Dream Reachers :)
