I've been waiting for a book like this for ages. No star on earth deserves this type of glowing tribute to a legendary career more than Liza May Minnelli.

Kudos to Scott Schechter for writing and compiling a lasting legacy of one of the most electric, most versatile, and most loving superstars who has ever graced a concert stage, Broadway boards, movie screen, recording studio, television sound stage or benefit ballroom.

If you buy this book you'll see photographs of Liza that you've never seen before, and I thought I'd seen them all, honestly. You'll finally have a complete list of Liza's films, television appearances, albums/CDs, and most remarkably -- a comprehensive (and impressive) list of Liza's concerts. And the astute author has provided complete overviews of each stage of Liza's career ... from the start w/mama at MGM to her current stint on "Arrested Development." It's all here!

What star has played Carnegie Hall, the Olympia Theatre in Paris, the Palladium and Royal Albert Hall in London, several Broadway theaters (including the Palace), Radio City Music Hall and every other major venue across our great country and most of the world? Liza ... that's who!

No personal gossip, here, thank goodness. This is a rare look into the remarkable career of an incandescent star, and this long-time fan is joyous that this work of love has been produced for Liza's adoring public.

Thank you, Mr. Schechter and everyone associated with this much-needed salute to the World's Greatest Entertainer!

Thanks to the Liza fans for all the kindness and support of the book.

Here are some of the professional reviews the book has gotten to date :

From Booksoup.com :

Liza Minnelli has mesmerized her audiences with her remarkable talent and pure joy of entertaining for decades. Her appeal is universal and timeless. For those us who have had the pleasure of closely following her career, no other performing artist can compare. "The Liza Minnelli Scrapbook" is a comprehensive pictorial history. Schechter has done an amazing job of chronicling Liza's career accompanying his research with pictures both familiar and new to the avid Liza fan. For longtime Liza fans like myself, the book is treasure of Liza remembrances and certainly the ultimate Liza "reference" book.

The Liza Minnelli Scrapbook

by Scott Schechter

Perfect for any fan, The Liza Minnelli Scrapbook is just that - a scrapbook of an almost five-decade career. With a fond foreword by Billy Stricth, this book chronicles Liza's life by decade. There are brief overviews of each ten-year span, and then details and at least a brief synopsis on every movie, television show, Broadway show, and recording Liza has ever done. Furthermore, as if that was not enough, there are billions of pictures - pictures with other celebrity friends, cameos from various television and movie stints, covers of playbills and recordings, etc. The book is so indubitably complete in its coverage of Liza's career that there is even a picture of Liza with Kermit the Frog from her episode on "The Muppet Show!" This is an incredible, cohesive, and all-inclusive record of Ms.

The Liza Minnelli Scrapbook is a MUST HAVE for all Liza fans. I have been a fan since 1972 and in all those years I have not come across a book as good as this book. The book is filled with beautiful photo's from cover to cover Scott has captured every part of Liza's fantastic career.

I ordered a copy from amazon.com and received it the other day and have not put it down since. Thanks Scott for giving us a great book to read and cherish forever.

Format: Paperback
Liza has shared her talent with the world - having performed almost everywhere on the planet that has a stage or a television or moviehouse or record / CD / DVD player or even a computer, and for five decades to boot. Scott Schechter's loving tribute book to Liza continues this passion by sharing with readers details on where and when Liza has performed what and how!

I am grateful to having had the opportunity in Scott's book to share three of my pictures of Liza performing in Sydney in 1981 Page 175) and in London in 1986 (page 178). Being a longtime fan since 1972 with Liza's appearance in Liza with a Z on television, and Cabaret at the movies, Scott's book is full of surprises particularly about Liza's early career and some of the Liza's potential entertainment projects that weren't meant to be.

Where to begin with a wonderful Liza pictures (or 2 or 3 or 4) on almost every one of the more than 200 pages, many having their first-ever public showing. For me, the best thing about Scott's tribute book to Liza is that it showcases her enormous longstanding and continuing talent. And this at a time when the media seems much more interested in other matters best settled in court.

I love Liza, her talent has been a key part of my life for approaching 35 years (page 214, top left). The positive messages portrayed by Liza since the start shine through this book. They have illuminated my life and will illuminate all who are lucky enough to read this wonderful tribute book to Liza. I'm grateful, now the next question remains - how to chronicle Liza continuing career!
