Book Review

“…this wonderfully moving and entertaining biography will have you thinking differently about what it means to give generously and spend lavishly.” 
Marie Claire

“Napoli’s narrative skills are outstanding. She depicts Ray and Joan in vivid detail and with deep sympathy, something that’s especially difficult given how neither Kroc was an especially appealing person.”
Chicago Tribune

“Journalist Lisa Napoli’s Ray & Joan is remarkable… a playful, even waggish work of biography.”
Christian Science Monitor

“Napoli weaves together the Krocs’s personal and business dramas with considerable intelligence… [her] portrait of Joan in her final two decades, impulsively writing multimillion-dollar checks and dispatching her private jet “like a pickup truck” to run personal errands for friends, is charming and engaging.”
Boston Globe

“Lisa Napoli shows herself to be both a storyteller and a journalist as she pulls back the curtain.”
San Diego Union-Tribune

“Fabulous… entertaining… Ray & Joan is a moving, extremely well-written story of big business, big love, and big giving.”
—Huffington Post
