Format: Paperback
This is a very entertaining book, which not only discusses a bit of Oz movie history, but shows a look at the Hollywood of yore. It covers, with fascinating detail, each pair of slippers and where they are and how they were discovered, along with the fakes and frauds found along on the road to their discovery. For any fan of the film and its contents, this is must reading.

If you enjoy a good mystery, then you will enjoy "The Ruby Slippers of Oz". It is not just a story about shoes, it is about people and how these mystical shoes have changed their lives. I highly recommend it. This book is not just for Oz fans!

This book takes the reader far beyond the flatlands of Kansas and on an incredeible tour of Hollywood Movie Memorabilia. It brings to life people and movies who are long dead but not forgotten. Each page pulls the reader in and makes them take notice just like the sparkling ruby red slippers. You can't look away and you can't stop reading. When I reached the last page I found myself, like the author, realizing that there can't be an end to the story as long as people want the slippers...and face it how can you not love the slippers??? I think the best ending of all would be if this book was updated so we could all know the path the slippers have taken since the book was first published.

Format: Paperback
This book is one of the most fascinating things I have ever read. The descriptions of the MGM auction and the details of the days leading up to it are priceless. As another reviewer has stated, I also think this book should be expanded/updated and re-released.... possibly as a hardcover coffee table book. Since it was written, Debbie Reynolds has publicly shown her Arabian test shoes and has admitted her dealings with Kent Warner. Also, at least one pair of slippers has changed hands again and one pair has been stolen.

I first heard about this wonderful story when I caught the Discovery Channel's documentary of the same story, but they mentioned the book and I *had to have it*!
I was not disappointed; I've reread it two or three times already and am continually delighted. If you are an "OZ" fan in the *slightest*, you cannot let this one go unread!

This book should be updated and re-released. Great history of Hollywood underground, which makes you wish you could have gone on the MGM backlot and looked for costumes and props, too! My only question: what happened to Dorothy's basket?
