Apart from having the word "nineties" appear in 3 places, mid-sentence, for no apparent reason, the book would give the non Cher fan, or a new Cher fan, a good history. If you've followed Cher through the years you already know this stuff. It doesn't appear that the authors ever spoke to Cher but compiled bits and pieces of what had already been written. I'd buy it if I wanted to know more of Cher's history. AOR could be defined. And I'm not clear if the spotlight mentioned on page 85 is called Bittersweet Bright Light and the album was named Bittersweet White Light or if there is another typo there.

This author has obviously never written anything except a review. I was SO disappointed...it is basically a critique of every song, who it was written by, and it is BORING! I wish I could take it back but I lost the receipt!

Format: Paperback
I have been a long time fan of Cher and have read many books about her life so I was excited to read this new book. If you are a new fan, this book provides excellent biographical information, but if you are a long time fan like me, there's not much new information here that hasn't already been rehashed in countless other books. This book provides great insight into Cher's early life and touched briefly on what went on behind the scenes at the Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour, but focuses mainly on each of Cher's albums, singles (who wrote and produced each of them as well as how well they did on the charts), and movies. It did contain some quotes and interview information that I hadn't read before, but it was missing some chunks of time and important events in her life.

This book is written in 2 parts by two different authors (Part 1 is Cher's birth to 1979 by Daryl Easlea and Part 2 is 1980 to 2012 by Eddi Fiegel). Aside from not having much new information, my biggest complaint is all the typos! It seems as though no one edited this book before it was printed! The first half of the book by Daryl Easlea contains so many typos, including the word "nineties" in multiple random places, grammatical errors, and the mis-naming of her Bittersweet White Light album (1973) as Bittersweet Bright Light! The transition between authors was not seamless and you can tell two different people wrote it, the second half being much better written and with no typos. There were a few included photos I hadn't seen before in the center insert but it was missing chunks of years between the Believe tour and 2012 within the photos.

Overall, if you can overlook the horrible editing job, it's a decent book.

I've read better books on Cher. Some parts of the book are dragged out; between her albums, the record companies, and who produced what album. I found this to be boring. There's a few pages of photos that's all!
