Praise for "The Importance of Being Barbra" "Not at all the average fan tribute, "The Importance of Being Barbra" mixes milk-and-honey admiration with bracing shots of vinegar. His book is smart, funny, right-on. An encyclopedic must-read for anybody who has pondered the greatness, perfection, and oddities of Miss Streisand."---Liz Smith, "New York"" Post" columnist "An astute and thorough analysis of Streisand's career told in a brisk and engaging style while carefully establishing Streisand as a major cultural icon."---A. R. Gurney Jr., author of "Love Letters" and "Scenes from American Life" "Cheeky and essential to a well-rounded Streisand collection, this book is highly recommended."--"Library Journal" "[A] fresh approach to Streisand's varied five-decade career, applying both a fan's affection and a cultural critic's analysis to the role Streisand has played in the larger culture of her times."--"Boston"" Globe" "Santopietro's book ... fixates on Streisand's professional, not personal life, and that focus makes "The Importance of Being Barbra" a more valuable keepsake for devotees who prefer something more thoughtful than "In Touch" magazine."--"Miami"" Herald" "[A] treasure of information.... a reader-friendly survey of the career of this major star." --"EDGE "magazine "[A] fast, fascinating overview of this very varied career."--"Playbill" "
