If you've ever read a tabloid newspaper or a men's magazine, you'll have heard of Jordan. In more recent times, you don't even need to have done this to have heard of her, thanks to her attempts to represent the UK in 2005's Eurovision Song Contest and her appearance in the 2004 series of ITV's "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!"

Born Katie Infield in Brighton, Jordan's problems with men started when she was three years old and her father, who hadn't really been around much, left for good. Her home life was to become a little more stable after her mother remarried, and the surname she now uses, Price, is that of her stepfather.

Although she denies it had any impact on her growing up, this is a story of failed relationships with men. Her attempts to become a model led her into a dangerous professional relationship with an amateur photographer who turned out to be a paedophile. From there on, it's her personal relationships that failed to go well, as she lurched from one disaster to another even as her dream career came true.

This means is that the book is mostly concerned with these two aspects of her life. There are brief mentions of her family and her time before she became a model, but they seem to be largely glossed over as if Jordan's eager to get them out of the way to get to what she feels is the real meat of the story. This is fine, if all you read is the Sun and News of the World or footballers' biographies.

For the more discerning reader amongst us, however, it proves to be a dreadful let down. Anyone hoping that Katie Price would be lifting the lid on her thoughts and feelings about life and telling about the bits that didn't make the tabloids as they happened before she ever became Jordan will be dreadfully disappointed.

Format: Paperback
I picked up this book at a local bookstore as I was somewhat curious to all the hype and gossip surrounding the omnipresent Katie Price. She has flooded gossip columns, television shows and, now, literature book-lists as one of the highest grossing businesswomen of the millennium. I have never been extremely impressed with the media surrounding Ms Price, but thought that her autobiography might shed some light on what is behind all the harsh newspaper reports. What I found was quite an enjoyable read, for a few chapters anyway.
The first half of the book was quite surprising in that she goes into detail about her adolescent life, her inspirations surrounding pursuing a career in (glamour) modelling, and the very personal story of her experiences with a paedophilic photographer during her pre-adolescent teenage years. This I applaud her for, as I expect it is not an easy feat to expose personal stories like these, and hopefully will inspire people in similar situations to tell their stories as well, or at least seek help from the proper authorities.
This, however, is where my applauding halts, as most of the following chapters focus on her (very) publicised relationships. Plus, while this is expected, Katie goes into a rant of berating her ex-lovers' penis sizes, sexual performance and extremely shallow expectations of what a man's body should be like in order to acquire the authority to `date' her. I felt particularly sorry for Gareth Gates, as whilst I don't doubt Katie's words are in essence the truth, she really doesn't put him in a good light towards the end.

i dont read many books at all but i did make an effort to buy this as i had heard it was good read,i was more than suprised. after reading the first page i was hooked bare in mind im not a book gal at all,(i read this in under a week) i just couldnt put it down every page you are willing to turn. you get a full sight into katies life she talks about things that are very personal to her about her son and her love life, she tells of her trouble of dwight york and her lust for teddy shringham its brilliant. after finishing this book it left me begging for more. although i found the book amazingly intresting i doubt wheter it would be sutable for prude types as she dosnt leave much to the imagination about her sex life and if your not intrested in the whole glamour modeling, sex lifes of the rich and famous i wouldnt bother. but if like my self you cant get enough of the rich and fabulous this is a deffinate for your book shelf. one word to summerise this book would be truthfull. go out and buy it i swear it will be money well spent.

Utter dribble - a complete waste of paper and time. Even as someone who does think that there's more to Katy price than the two inflated egos stuck to her chest but this "book" is just a wanna be tabloid kiss and tell.
Pure cashing in on the "Get me out of here" media hype. Let's hope both her and Peter Andrea fall flat (well Katy couldn't) on their faces. It's a blatant ill thought out get rich quick scheme.
