Praise for 'In Search of River Phoenix':

"An exciting blend of drama and documentary- a must read."
- Mid-West Book Review

"This book is great value to the memory of River and to those who want to know more about him"
- Willian Richert, writer, film director

“Barry, that’s good. I like the chapter [11]. I do agree with Udo—what he says in the end [about the question of River possibly being gay]. The whole thing has an amazing effect on popular culture.”
Gus Van Sant, Film director

“The result is quite simply the most beautifully written and moving section of any River Phoenix biography.”
- Rio's Attic-Book review

"Barry Lawrence's book far surpasses the existing biographies out there because of his tireless efforts to get to the truth and squash the rumors."
- Elizabeth, book reader

"This book gave me 'everything' I wanted."
