I'm a huge Britney Spears fan and pre-ordered this book as there haven't been any decent biographies published about Britney. I was instantly gripped by this account of her eventful life so far. The author reveals fascinating details about her childhood and her relationship with her mother as well as with the various men in her life - with much more sensitivity and insight than the usual tabloid tales. His explanation of what led her to that notorious Vegas wedding is particularly thought-provoking.
I was intrigued by the detail about the southern bible-belt environment in which she grew up and the conflict between her strict religious upbringing and her raunchy public image. This is a thread which runs throughout the book and explains a great deal about Britney.
Finally, a mention for the picture section which is outstanding.
