“A balanced and perceptive ride through the highs, the lows, the squeaky clean and the toxic.”

She may only be 27 years old, but Britney Spears has seen and done enough for her life story to fill several volumes - and from stardom to breakdown, this book covers it all.

As such, it may be inevitable that the book will tell any reasonably clued up Britney fan a lot of things they already knew. However, that doesn't mean it's not worth their time or anyone else's - what is unique to this tome and makes it stand out amongst the ranks of unauthorised biographies is that Dennis makes it a very psychological exercise. The book includes many comments from a qualified psychologist theorising on the events of Britney's life and the human explanation behind her actions. In light of her well publicised breakdown and resurrection from the ashes, this may well be of interest not just to fans but to anybody who is at all interested in celebrity culture and how stars rise and fall (and in Britney's case, rise again). This is a book that will make you rethink everything you saw in the tabloids and see it in a fresh light.

To the book's credit, it doesn't address the reader as if they are a fan who will know everything or as a trained psychologist who can have tons of jargon thrown at them. The prose is very readable, and he takes pains not to point fingers or assign blame. Neither Britney nor the other players in her life are demonised or put up on pedestals, and he is careful to present both sides of the story where the truth is in dispute. That said, as a fan I did spot a number of pretty basic factual errors (particularly dates and correct sequences of events).

More importantly, it has to be rembered that this is an unofficial book and as such, he's going on a lot of educated guesswork here.

This 2010 paperback biography covers the life of Britney from her birth to the Circus Era with mentioning s of the X-Factor appearances; the lows, the highs, and the in betweens. What strikes this book to stand out from the others is the in depth approach of traveling inside the life of Britney. The author, Steve Dennis did some extensive research, hired a psychologist and embarked on a journey through the lens of the life of Britney. While there are some wrong album titles and misspellings this is not to be considered a bad read. The valuable input from the camp close to Britney [although no names were cited] create a puzzle like approach of getting the events pieced together to understand the chaos, and the knowledge of "Who is Britney Spears?". While the book Britney Spears: Little Girl Lost provides a phenomenal account, this book fills the gaps and details that one leaves out. This book got me to know more about the decisions Britney made, her struggles to make it on the music business, her belief in self, and her desire to never give up on her passion! It is a sure fire read that is impacting, insightful, and definitely on my favorites list.

As the book lays out the history of Britney's parents I was stunned to see how much information about Jamie Spears was left out on other books. His demons were scrutinized, analyzed, and dissected. It became evident from getting to know more about Britney's parents that she suffered emotional trauma at a young age. Being born into a dysfunctional family can never be easy. Her escape was her performance, her singing and her dancing. From the history of her parents and early childhood, the book mentions Britney's first love, first kiss, loss of virginity, and wild party nights.

By Benson VINE VOICE on 22 Jun. 2011
Format: Paperback
When the biography is unauthorised you can never be totally certain how much you should take away from the insight as the actual truth but for the most part Steve Dennis provides a very believable and well researched insight into the life of Britney Spears, backing up his well thought out theories appropriately.

The book pretty much traces Britney's professional journey from early childhood, exploring lesser known personal griefs of the star that may or may not have been a big contributing factor to that famous deterioration of the star that the whole world watched in 2007. There is a chapter at the end about the 'Circus' era but for the most part this book only channels the development of Britney up to that point.

Generally Steve Dennis portrays Britney very positively and sympathetically throughout. As a fan I especially enjoyed his style and knowing the professional journey of Britney very well I can reinstate that the theories are very logical.

Definitely a must for a Britney fan. I would also imagine this a great asset for anyone researching or writing a paper on Britney.

Great read. Good insight into Britney's life, you get to understand more into Britney's behaviour, and why she might have behaved how she did/does...it isn't all as it appears. Would recommend this book to everybody (even if you aren't a Britney fan)
