For years people said someone should write a book about Bo Roos, but nobody will believe it. Now his daughter Carolyn has written the book, and it is believeable as it captures Hollywood's Golden Age and Bo Roos's unique part in it as one of Hollywood's most powerful and successful business managers. It's an amazing piece of Hollywood history that hasn't been covered before. Ben Newman, Attorney (Bo Roos) virtually founded the profession of business manager and personal manager (to Hollywood's stars). Daily Variety Because of his flamboyant, high powered and hectic way of life, Bo (pronounced Boo) Roos could have been the model for the movie sterotype of the Hollywood business manager. The New York Times Bo Roos' life story is a saga that would top the Horatio Alger novels of yesteryear. The Foreign Friends of Acapulco newsletter Bo Roos was a man of outsize personality and zest. Ballerina Margot Fonteyn Bo Roos not only keeps (his clients) on an allowance - he eats, drinks, and even weeps with them. Saturday Evening Post Bo invested and took risks right alongside his clients claiming more conservative managers were 'guys going through life with nothing on their chests.' Working with him was always full of excitement and the unexpected. Carolyn's captured his story well. Al Marsella, CPA
