The text includes in-depth information about Beyoncé's life from birth through childhood, teen years, and adulthood, incorporating information on her family background, education, personal and professional influences, struggles, accomplishments, and contributions. The text also includes a timeline, discography, list of awards, list of online album reviews, bibliography of print and internet resources, and five B&W photographs."

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By jwo03 on May 13, 2011
Format: Hardcover
I was interested in purchasing this book because the preview pages featured detailed information about Beyonce's familial and cultural background. I assumed the rest of the book was the same and that I would be able to immensely add on to my knowledge about Beyonce` personally and in her career. NOT THE CASE AT ALL. There are 12 chapters total and majority of the book is the author's personal commentary on Beyonce's career (most of which is negative). The book is HARDLY a biography and doesn't speak much to Beyonce's life. Don't waste your money. Purchase "Soul Survivors," the official bio by Destiny's Child instead.
