“Madeline Bocaro’s book may be the last word on Yoko Ono. Detailed, driven, and equally passionate about the art and life of Yoko. Of course, it goes into the John and Yoko world, but more importantly, it focuses on Ono’s art and music, with tons of information on her Fluxus years, as well as Yoko’s roots in Japanese Avant-Garde art. Yoko Ono herself is fascinating, but Bocaro’s approach to this artist’s work is a must-read.”
– Tosh Berman, author of TOSH: Growing Up in Wallace Berman’s World.
“Very beautiful. You capture her spirit and vision. You tell her story so well and it’s very important that someone does. Yoko spent so much of her life being misunderstood and misrepresented. She is such a special person and artist. The world needs the record you are creating. I am amazed not only by how much you know about Yoko, but also how well you write about it. Thank you for what you are doing. It’s wonderful to see Yoko and her art celebrated.”
– Dan Richter, friend & assistant to John & Yoko
“Great insights into this amazing creator. It’s informative and humorous. I am learning much more about Yoko.”
– Jaeme Grosvenor

“You make your idol come alive. You write so skillfully and emotionally.”
– Cherry Vanilla
“I’m marking it up (rare that i do that) like my Bible and Dylan lyric book. When it comes to words of wisdom, I let go of my “collecting mode” and treat it more like a manual for life! I can’t give a better compliment than that. I want to return to it often throughout my life, and quickly see what moved/moves me.”

– Mike Mitchell
“I am mesmerized by the spirit of Yoko rising from the pages – so intimate, it feels as if I am in her presence. I feel as if Yoko is talking to me personally. Your writing reaches the depths of Yoko’s soul.”
– Robert Loney
“This is a doctoral dissertation on Yoko. You beautifully explain the myriad of facets that she shows the world… if our hearts and minds are receptive.I love your many insights. This speaks to me: “Yoko is like a polished gemstone – radiating after years of abrasion.”
– Corinne Phillipedes
“You have created a paradise for those of us needing Yoko’s wisdom in our own lives…
The afterword should be cherished by the world!”
– Dorothy Sherman
