“Most of the time I was waiting for just one moment of truth or authenticity. After all, you can tell a lot about a person or a situation in a minute. But only if you choose the right minute”
You can tell a lot about someone in a minute. If you choose the right minute.

- Tries to keep Mötley Crüe out of jail

“Strauss is a deft narrator and expert inquisitor. He cuts out the flowery descriptors and gumpf that comes with interviewing a star…and strips it back to the revealing nitty-gritty, absurd and amusing exchanges we all wish we could be privy to. … The perfect book to dip into.”

“Strauss becomes confessor, accomplice, champion and prosecutor. One minute he’s discussing feminism with Lady Gaga. Next, he’s taking part in the Ho’lympics at the home of rapper Ludacris.”
“Strauss is genuinely trying to shake down celebrity for the small change of wisdom. … Strauss can be an imaginative and sympathetic interviewer and packaged up alongside his A-list interviews are encounters with unsung heroes.”
“One of the most intuitive interviewers and portraiture artists on the Rolling Stone/NY Times payroll … Addictive.”
