What a boring repetitive story line.

Such a shame Bower couldn't have done a better job on his research!

I think the hype about his conquests was just to sell the book.

Five stars for being well written. Four stars for content which is mainly about Cowell's career. This is not a gossip book, nor did I expect it to be. People with the really private stuff were pretty tight lipped. My only problem with the book is that it took itself so seriously. Simon's a funny guy. I expected a looser tone. A bit dry at times.

EDIT Went back to read a portion. Writing not as good as I remember: 3-4 stars. Book still 4 stars though.

You must be a fan of Simon's to stay with this biography. He is an interesting chap and I am a fan but there are some parts of the book that are too detailed with unwanted facts.

What a boring repetitive story line. This man has had nothing in his head except me me me his whole life this far. The only purpose this book serves is that one realizes afterwards how crooked all these shows are. I will not be watching any of it again!!

The book is a fun romp and easy to read - but the constant factual inaccuracies drove me crazy!

I'm a Brit TV producer now working in the US so even though I don't know Cowell I know this world fairly well.

Popstars: The Rivals didn't create two rival girl-bands - it was a boy band versus a girl band.

The second night of American Idol in the US didn't involve audience voting - that only happened when the show reached the live rounds (as every Idol fan knows). And there was a Top 10 not a Top 9.

Westlife (who were originally called Westside) have not scored three US number 1's - they've never actually had a real US hit

Simon Cowell's Cupid came out the year after Idol launched - not during the first season of the show

And these are just from the first 150 pages...!

Such a shame Bower couldn't have done a better job on his research!

Found it hard to read because it wasn't very well written and the story a bit tedious? Interesting subject though..

It did not make me a Simon Cowell fan, I must say. I don't know why I expected it to.
It makes me glad to be only peripherally in the music business, if these are the jerks who win out.
