You're drawn in immediately if pop culture is one of your interests. I suspect any reader even slightly interested in Andy or any of his efforts would experience the same result. He's honest, he puts his feelings out there, and if something is wrong to him, he says so. The instinct for most people writing a book of this nature would be to "tread lightly" or buckle under so as not to incur controversy. Cohen sticks to what is important, and conveying his feelings about matters that hurt him emotionally are wide open territory he guides the reader through skillfully and in appearance, effortlessly.
He admits his mistakes and he puts everything out there. It truly is like a series of interesting conversations with a brand new friend... one that won't stop talking. And you won't want him to stop, because it's stuff you always wanted to know.
I gave the book three stars, not because it's a bad book, it's just not a deep book. It's a fun book and an enjoyable read. If you are curious about what happens behind the scenes of making reality T.V. this is a good read. If you're curious about what it's like to be a producer of reality T.V. this is a good book. If you wonder how to be yourself this is a very good book.
What I really enjoyed was the beginning of the book, a young boy coming to terms with who he was and how he managed to be that person. Any kid in the closet should read this because I think it's reaffirming that it really is okay to be who you are.
I also like the lessons that Andy Cohen says he's learned.
In the last half of the book we get to learn more about the "Housewives" series. Most of us couldn't avoid the drama as it played out in the news with the White House party crashers and the unfortunate suicide. So to read what it was like from inside the network made things more interesting for me. (And to my wife who I related much of the story to.)
I read the book in a couple of days, very conversational. I'd say that if you like T.V. and reality T.V. and Andy Cohen, and want a pleasurable and easy read, this is the book you'll enjoy.
