True, I, too didn't know what to expect when I purchased this book, I bought it for the simple reason it was by Rihanna. The book is basically a behind the scenes for her last tour and the photographs capture it perfectly - really artistic and beautiful. If you went to one of Rihanna's shows for the Last Girl on Earth tour you will see similarities in the photographs as to stage settings and images.
There are some written pieces in this book, which aren't long or written by Rihanna but this book was never meant to be or advertised as a biography/autobiography. It is as stated "the official visual chronicle of the year's "it" girl as she embarks on her first solo tour".
Personally I would recommend this to any Rihanna fan, it may not be for a child fan as they may wish for facts such as hobbies and favourite foods etc but they may enjoy the pictures, which there are lots. As an adult, 22 year old, fan of Rihanna I think its a nice book and yes, I would enjoy a book about Rihanna written by Rihanna, but for now I enjoy this piece of art, as that is what it is.
Not as good or as in-depth as the GaGa or Bowie books that are available though. But still worth a buy if you are interested in this style of photography or a fan :)
