Support and Endorsement, Resources and Official Contributors - 'Bob Crane: The Definitive Biography'

Bob Crane: The Definitive Biography, as well as all of our work on behalf of Bob Crane, is officially supported and endorsed by members of Bob Crane's family, including his son Robert Scott Crane, his daughter Karen Crane, and several of his cousins, and they have also contributed to the book. Further, our book and all of our ongoing work are supported and endorsed by Bob Crane's close friends as far back as grade school; his coworkers in radio, television, theatre, and film; and the counselor who was helping Bob Crane understand and deal with his addiction shortly before his murder—an addiction Bob himself recognized and from which he wanted to heal. As you can see below, all of these individuals also contributed to our book. Thus, with such tremendous endorsement and support, as well as extensive research spanning decades, we can say, with support from Bob Crane's family and his estate, that we are Bob Crane's official biographers. We provide truth, clarity, and understanding about his life, from birth to death, without judgment or any profit-driven agenda. Author proceeds are regularly donated to charity or are used to offset costs of continuing our work on his behalf.
