What is the response of the Lubavitcher rabbinate (as in Lubavitcher rabbis in general, I am not referring to any specific rabbinical body) to the new book on the Rebbe zt"l by Josef Telushkin? Is it perceived to accurately portray the history of the Rebbe's life? Are there any book reviews available online written by prominent Lubavitcher Chasidim?

My local Chabad shliach has been enthusiastically promoting the book, so I guess at least as far as that goes, it's kosher mehadrin. –  Tatpurusha Jun 29 at 16:21
    
Mine, too, @Tatpurusha. –  msh210 Jun 29 at 19:25

Although the second is more at Rabbi Miller. –  Shmuel Brin Jun 29 at 20:10
    
Same here @Tatpurusha. In fact, he has been praising all 2 or 3 of the recent biographical works on the Rebbe. –  WAF Jun 30 at 3:03

chabad.org Lubavitch's primary online voice carries a fine review of the book: http://www.chabad.org/news/article_cdo/aid/2619597/jewish/Biography-of-the-Rebbe-Hits-New-York-Times-Best-Seller-List.htm

It would seem they strongly approve.
