This isn't my typical read, but since my daughter bought it for me, I thought I'd give it a shot. I really did enjoy it; liked the back stage viewpoint of the show. It explained a lot about why Simon is the way he is. :-)
If you are an AI addict, you MUST read this book! Such fun and also eye-opening. Simon's take on some current stars, idols from Season 1 and 2, and Hollywood's star couples (he missed the call on a couple of them. That's fun.) Easy to read and you might end up loving Simon instead of hating him.

Helpful Score: 1
Yeah, Simon's more than a bit full of himself, but I found this a very interesting read. If you love American Idol, you will find this a fun behind-the-scenes look at Simon's background and the first couple seasons of AI.
