Format: Hardcover
This book was a great disappointment, and could have been put together by anyone sufficiently obsessed by Kate Moss to collect every available press cutting and media picture of her. Far from being an informative and enlightening read, it read like a very long press release. Many of the photogrpahs were poor quality, and there was nothing in the book that anyone who reads the newspapers did not already know.
I don't recommend this at all.

Weak. 12 Jan. 2005
By Heidi Hill - Published on
Format: Hardcover
When I heard there was a biography on Kate Moss coming out, I could not wait, especially since this book received so much hype about how much it revealed.

Please! First of all, this is a very small book, just shy over 100 pages of actual writing. The rest of the pages are poor quality B&W pictures, and a huge section in the back of "notes," and a bibliography.

After finishing this book in one sitting, I had learned nothing new about Kate Moss. Every bit of information in this book is taken from old interviews Kate, Johnny Depp, and others, had done for different magazines.

I think this book was a waste of money, and is not worth it at all, not even for a die-hard fan.

No new insights. 3 Dec. 2005
By A. Moore - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I was disappointed because each chapter was only a short summary of previously written magazine articles and, hence, contained no new information. The author seemed to have no direct contact with either Kate Moss or those in the fashion industry. After reading this book, I learned nothing and gained no insight into the model.

pretty good for a book report... 5 Sept. 2005
By *Caligirl_08* - Published on
Format: Hardcover
my english teacher would give this an A if the assignment was to solely gather info from magazines. But where are the 1st person interviews? the author could have been way more resorceful! there are hundreds of people she could have interviewed to make this a stellar best seller it deserves to be. Kate Moss inspired a generation of young people. This book inspires nothing.

the least informative celeb bio EVER! 20 Mar. 2006
By S. Kerry Benedict - Published on
Format: Hardcover
the queens I go out dancing with provide more insight and witty commentary on Lady Kate than this thrown-together and obviously cheaply self-published piece (...). I wish I could get my money back, so I could buy things like the new issue of 'W', which features a Kate layout that is more inspiring and revealing than anything in this book. She was discovered in an airport? And criticized for being thin? I could've used more depth than 'duh'. I personally am a fan of coleslaw, and could write a more fascinating look at coleslaw than this so-called Kate-super-fan wrote about her hero.

just not a very good book 20 Mar. 2006
By tony - Published on
Format: Hardcover
my friends and i just chose this for our monthly fashion-oriented book club (we've previously enjoyed easily appropriate selections like "the devil wears prada", etc.) and were unanimously disapointed (they all are about to write their own reviews here, though). maybe this could be good for someone who isn't already a Kate fan, or has never heard such things about models doing drugs or being too skinny - like people who live in a bio-sphere or something. i guess i just expected more indepth info - like, how about a FREAKIN' INTERVIEW WITH KATE HERSELF! - from an author who ran "the web's most popular Kate Moss site" for like 5 years. some "fan"!
