Book Description

29 July 2010
The Sunday Times bestselling biography of the fresh-faced, charismatic and talented Justin Bieber, the teen singing sensation who has taken the music world by storm. At just sixteen years old, he has already achieved global recognition and number ones worldwide with his debut single and album. Born on 1 March 1994, Justin grew up in the small city of Stratford in Canada. His love of singing was apparent from an early age and he was an avid member of the local church choir. His mum started posting videos on YouTube of her thirteen-year-old boy singing cover versions. Hits on the site started building almost immediately and it wasn't long before he had fans - of all ages, all over the world. When, in 2008, music-industry professional Scooter Braun became his manager, this young star was firmly on the path to stardom. His debut single 'One Time' was released in 2009 and went into the top 30 in ten countries around the world, and his album My World 2.0 caused instant excitement. In this book Chas Newkey-Burden explores this teenager's sensational story, making it the must-have book for anyone with Bieber Fever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Justin Bieber book. The unauthrised biography 18 Nov 2011
By cjrj39
As this has been bought as a gift for my young grand-daughter, and as I have not yet given it to her, I cannot state whether it is good or bad. In my own opinion, it is a great one, and I shall hear the shrieks of approval once it is opened by her. CJR

5.0 out of 5 stars OMB! 16 Mar 2011
Oh My Bieber! This book is incredible!
Provides an informative insight into the worldwide modern-day superhero who is Justin Bieber, the teenager who has been propelled to stardom and now seems so unreachable - due to always being surrounded by screaming girls and bodyguards. Makes the reader feel as if they know the real story behind this superstar and also makes them realise that dreams can come true ... and not just to the incredibly rich people.

Amazing, a must read!!

Never Say Never.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chas Newkey-Burden Takes Us Into the Making of a Pop Star 11 Jan 2013
By Cyrus Webb - Published on Amazon.com
Before reading the book JUSTIN BIEBER by Chas Newkey-Burden I hadn't done alot of reading about the pop star. I had seen bits and pieces of his story on tv shows, but this book really sheds a great deal of light on who he was before the world got to know him and what it has been like for his family and him to get used to be a part of popular culture.

Newkey-Burden allows you to see how it all began: the humble upbringing and the talent that his family saw and decided to share with others through competitions and playing around in the house.

This book really shows how the making of the pop star that is Bieber would not have been possible in the way it happened if it wasn't for the internet. The book shares the story how the now legendary Youtube videos were initially meant just to share with other family and friends---but the world soon got to see Justin Bieber and his talent and that is when the rollercoaster really began.

Whether you are a fan of his music or not, I think this biography is noteworthy because it shows what is possible with hard work and dedication. Some will say that Justin Bieber and those like him are just "lucky". I disagree. They took advantage of an opportunity, and that is what made their success possible. Will you be as big or known as Justin Bieber? No one can say for sure. But one thing this book does show is that there is no way of knowing what is possible if you don't put forth the effort.

Delivered in a way that will attract both fans and those looking for inspiration, Chas Newkey-Burden's JUSTIN BIEBER takes us into the making of a pop star.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a negative bio, full of interesting info for Bieber fans 20 Dec 2010
By K. Corn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
What you won't find in this unauthorized bio? Lots of negative gossip or unflattering portrayals of Justin Bieber. Unauthorized or not, this is basically a look at the details behind the Bieber sensation. His humble beginnings in a small town, the breakup of his parents, an early passion for music (primarily fostered at church), and how he managed to use YouTube to promote himself. There is also a description of the fortuitous meeting with an astute manager...and the rest is history. I'm not even in the age group of those who go crazy for the singer and I still found interesting trivia in this one, including the world events that occurred in the year Bieber was born. Readers will actually learn something besides the scoop on Justin Bieber!

I DO like bios so this offered up intriguing bits of info about Bieber's early years, his success at "busking" (playing music on the street for whatever money people would give him). Even before he was famous, he made enough to take his mom on a vacation.

Coming from a humble background, the description of Bieber's rise to fame should inspire many who hope to achieve the same fame he did. And of course, the young women (teens, etc) who go nuts for this cute guy with the distinctive haircut will be eager to find everything they can about him - including this book. Sure to please them! At the end of the book are other references for more info on Bieber as well as related websites and twitter names to help fans follow the latest - from and about Bieber.

Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever (100% Official) [Hardcover]

As a true fan of justin Bieber I've read his book, First Step 2 Forever, I've read all his tweets and seen all his Youtube videos and interviews. This book is only a "retell" of all this information. Nothing new in it. I was hoping there would be something new such as interviews of people who grew up with him or people from his hometown who knew him as a kid to hear cute stories or funny stories about him. The book is kind to him which is good but makes me suspicious the author wants to be his best friend, not his biographer ...
