"Fans of NBC's Today show will love this coffeetable retrospective, packed with fabulous photos...lots of information on its stars (and their changing hairstyles!), including Florence Henderson, Barbara Walters, Katie Couric and more. But it's also a look at America's pop culture and social history."
NY Daily News
“Carefully and wisely framing the story as a lavishly illustrated history, Battaglio, a former Daily News staffer, creates a written highlight reel that’s little short of remarkable.”
"With its bountiful photographs and interviews, this valentine to the Today Show celebrates a program that has been woven into our collective historical narrative by virtue of its ongoing presence and coverage of national and international events for the past 60 years. The best kind of memory book—beautiful, informative, and evocative."
