Jackie O: On The Couch
by Alma H. Bond, Ph.D.
Jackie O: On the Couch is the story of Jackie Kennedy Onassis as she might have written it. This is not just another biography. For the first time, Jackie O: On the Couch highlights Jackie’s life from her own perspective, as imagined by author Dr. Alma Bond, a psychoanalyst and long-time student of Jackie lore.
Marilyn Monroe: On The Couch
by Alma H. Bond, Ph.D.
Marilyn Monroe on the Couch provides insights to the actress who had talent beyond her luminous beauty and yet remained so fragile despite her fame. Dr. Bond focuses on her life from the 1950s and 60s, a time in which she sought the help of a Manhattan psychoanalyst to cope. It's an illuminating book in ways that other writers have sought to achieve but often missed. --Bookviews (Alan Caruba)
