When I read Britney: The Unauthorized Biography of Britney Spears as well as saw an array of documentaries including the latest one titled, "Unbreakable" it became apparent to me that this writer did extensive research. What I also found that was even more informative was the newer information from the Circus Era all the way to Jason Trawick, Candies promotions, and family events. I have not found any other book with such new data. It really presented the information unbiased and inspirational. After reading this book it becomes apparent Britney Spears has taken many plunges to the depths of hell and somehow managed to pick herself up. It is very rare to see that kind of chaos from a music artist. The information on Sam Lutfi, Ghalib, and Britney's breakdown was heavily mentioned with details and information to back it up. Not quite like Sean Smith's book, this one does not mention Lutfi's involvement to such an extreme extent. It is more objective and less critical. Thus, opening the interpretation to the reader.
For those wondering what contents are in it besides Britney's breakdown there is much information on Britney's album debut sales, her management, her family, Justin Timberlake, her Wade Robson infidelity that lead to Justin ending their relationship and much more. Let me say that the other books I've read do not mention Wade Robson nor the actual details on how that night went. Furthermore, Kevin Federline is also heavily discussed with actual words from reporters and magazines who interviewed Kevin's mistress from a club when Britney was pregnant at home. All these facts I also viewed on the DVD Unbreakable, the documentary Life Through A Lens, and a few others. The author did not miss anything. He dug very profoundly because everything I viewed on the DVD's matched the book. And to me that was a bit unusual considering those rare interviews by Kevin Federline and the mistress that were not publicized anywhere. It really made me feel that Kevin was a womanizer, and a heart-breaker. My heart was definitely taken aback and surprised at the pain Britney endured. The prenuptial details was also a shocker.
Since I already had a pretty good idea on much of Britney's background I skimmed most of those sections and focused on the new and not heard of. I can assure you this book will put you up to speed on getting all the facts up to the Circus Era and some after. Jason Trawick is most definitely discussed as being a big hearted guy in Britney's life. Not one to go lightly on authors I would have to say this book is the best one I've read of Britney's. It took me inside those moments in time when Britney was in the ambulance riding to the Psychiatric Hospital, it took me to her shaving her head, her meltdowns, and her never ending struggle to not give up on her dream. If one thing is certain is that this book will paint the true picture of who Britney is: a fighter, a devoted mother, a very loving person, but most of all passionate for her career. Not once did she forget her fans. She never lost the fight. With time it can be said that Britney is an Icon and a legend that will endure until the end of times! Like Madonna, Michael Jackson and others she will stay relevant, talked about, and loved by all! This book is testament to that!

While it would have been tempting to blame both Spears for Britney's problems, the author treats Lynne fairly as he does her father Jamie. Even the people whom he considers "bottom dwellers" are still treated fairly in this book.
The author Chistopher Heard, in my opinion, does an outstanding job of reporting the facts, not the sensationalism, and gives an amazing story if not history of Britney's journey from childhood, the family sacrifiices, and ultimate rise to pop princess. The numerous challenges she would face, her struggles personal and professional are layed out in such a way that this reader couldn't help but feel sympathetic in the sense she'd become a prisoner of her own device, much like Elvis and Michael Jackson. But Mr. Heard maintains a very middle of the road stance, not defending, justifying, condemning, or judging Britney's behavior and decision making. It helped me understand from start to finish what she had to undergo to realize her dream and the downside of that success through microscopic public scrutiny. I would highly recommend this for anyone who is sincerely interested in "learning" about Britney rather than catching glimpses of tabloid fodder at the grocery store checkout. Published in 2011 much has transpired since then for Britney such as being a judge on the X Factor and inking a monster deal in Vegas and it would have been great to find out the behind the scenes of how those came into play. Perhaps next time if Mr. Heard decides to write again about her. In the end, I couldn't help find myself wishing her success for having survived it all up to this point and it appears Britney is going to make it through some very trying times. I wish her only the best.
