About the Author
Dannii Minogue has achieved twelve consecutive number one dance singles, becoming the most-successful artist on the UK Club Chart. The last year has seen Dannii's star ascend into the stratosphere, becoming a bona fide national treasure, as hailed by the UK media. Most recently, following her triumphant 2009 season on The X Factor, watched by a peak of 19.2 million, Dannii has been crowned 'Best TV Star' by the readers of Elle magazine and 'Ultimate TV Personality' by Cosmopolitan. Vogue also named Dannii one of the world's Top Ten most stylish women. Dannii made her Marks & Spencer debut in their spring / summer TV campaign. Dannii also launched her first fashion collection 'Project D' in the UK in June.

In addition to following her career we also get a peak into her usually off-limits personal life; Her short-lived marriage, being left in debt, her called-off engagement, her inspirations and motivations for her varied charity work, how it felt watching her sister battle cancer, her best friend losing her cancer battle, that 'lesbian orgy', and being on the receiving end of Sharon Osbourne's misplaced fury and becoming a mother.
A problem I have with autobiographies is how the author nearly aways feel the need to over share details [Jordan I'm looking at you] - you can't look at the people the same way again. So I was in two minds about getting this; On one hand I've grown up reading gossip about Dannii from Big and Smash Hits, up to Cosmopolitan and was interested in reading the real stories behind the rumours, but on the other hand it's hard to know where to draw the line and keep your dignity.
What impressed me the most was the lack of bitchiness; Remember Kelly Osbourne yelling over a "book full of lies" about Sharon?Read more ›
As I turned each page the book was so well written that I could imagine Dannii's Aussie accent reading aloud in my head and I breezed through its 35 jam-packed, fun, glamorous and often emotional chapters in 7 hours cover to cover.
I am sure that all Dannii fans who buy the book will be as happy with it as I am. However, I also hope that people who may not be Dannii's biggest fans or may have come to believe misconceptions about Dannii and her career will pick up the book and find out the truth about her, and her amazing, inspirational story.
As Miss Minogue very accurately wrote on the back cover: You may think you know all there is to know about me, but I dare you to turn the first page."
By Gemma Vernon
I suppose as a huge fan of Dannii's, I am bound by some unwritten law...(it's probably written somewhere) to be full
of praise for her autobiography and though I'll admit that is the case I feel it is most deserved.
This is an honest book written how Dannii actually talks. You can almost hear her Aussie accent reading it to you.
I think even if you're not a big fan you will be after reading this, it will have you laughing in parts and crying in
others, Dannii talks about everything openly and honestly including her Young talent time days, Home & away,her failed
marriage,music career,Kylies illness, X factor (Sharon Gate) and meeting the man of her dreams and becoming a mum. There are many other things included in the book but I don't want to spoil them for you. All in all this book just shows what an AMAZING woman Dannii is! After all the knock backs she got in life she carried on and got better and better each time, finally her
fairy tale begins and I couldn't be happier for her.
It arrived on the day and it was so good I couldn't put it down. It was funny, warm,sad in parts but mainly real.
There are alot of things in the book that Dannii went through that nobody except close friends and family knew about.
Makes me realise how, strong, caring and classy Dannii really is.
This book is a must for any Dannii fan.

Really enjoyed this book. For once an autobiography that covers a persons early life in detail rather than just the bit from when they became famous. Read morePublished 21 months ago by chris
