a very honest and at times sad insight into the ups and downs of being a child star. jay loved performing with his brothers but as a teenager wanted to hang out with friends and have a normal life~this caused personal conflict for himself and for his brothers as a collective. the family faced financial ruin but managed to overcome this huge problem. they met many wonderful entertaining people and made lifelong friends. jay talks about all the fun things that happened on tour. he also talks about how his faith has sustained him throughout his life and how it has kept him strong. i really enjoyed this book ~i read it twice~and will read again inthe future. thanks jay~ i fell in love all over again :)

I have read a number of Osmond autobiographies (Donny, Marie, Merrill,and also Virl's book about Mother Osmond)and enjoyed them all. Stages, is a great read. It really shows what difficulties a person can have when he is not allowed his own identity. Jay took a break from singing and lived and worked as a regular person. A superb drummer, recognised by some of the best. He also talks about the great relationship he has with his brothers and sister. Well worth buying. I will keep mine to read again one day. Got Wayne's to read next.

This book is such a good read. I, like I'm sure many ladies of a certain age who jumped on the Osmond bandwagon in the 70's (and never got off!), thought I knew all there was to know about them, but this book has shown me that there is so much more. This has given me such a lovely insight into the 'Osmond World' with stories not just about Jay but the entire family. I have laughed (out loud at times), cried and it has at times given me a great feeling of contentment. It is an easy read and I especially like the way it has been set out - you're never really quite sure what's coming next but always pleasantly surprised and never disappointed - I know I will read it many more times. I would recommend this book to anyone - Osmond Fan or not.

I bought this Autobiography as a gift for my partner as she is a devoted fan of the Osmond Brothers.
Having read Donny's book this one by Jay once again tells the real story of the good and bad parts of being a child star in the music business. Jay gives a full account of what it was like growing up in a large family and the strict regeme they endured as kids to perfect their art. It tells of life on the road and also how their strong Mormon faith has carried them through to still remain the most successful boy band in the world. Great buy.

If you are an Osmond fan, and particularly a fan of Jay, you will love this book. It gives an insight into his life and thoughts on the various 'Stages' of his life, with thoughts from family and friends too. I love this book, but then, I've loved Jay for most of my life!!
