Books about Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball

There are many books written about Lucy and Desi, I have read many of those. Some are very beautiful and touching but NO book or movie could EVER capsize the love they felt for each other.
I recommend everybody to read Desi and Lucy’s own autobiographies (A Book and Love, Lucy). The book Desilu: The Story of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz touched me deeply, it was so pain full, how the turned into after their divorce. (But highly recommended.)
But bear in mind that Lucy and Desi were kindest and sweetest people. Desi was simpler to analyze: he was outwardly nice, sweet and romantic. You couldn’t have a better boss. He didn't become high and mighty (the same applies to Lucy). Lucy was complicated: She actually has built a wall around herself, but when you look behind that wall you will see a very soft, sweet, loving, nice person, how haven’t so much self-confidence, as everyone thinks. And not everybody saw that person inside.
