Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Although the series title, Major Competitive Reality Shows, does not exactly trip off the tongue, fans of ABC’s popular Dancing with the Stars will learn pretty much all they wanted to know about how the show works. Starting with its iffy beginnings (though the British version was popular, TV execs in the U.S. weren’t sure it would fly here), this describes how the first stars were gathered; introduces past participants and judges; and goes into some detail about how the professional dancers must train and work with their partners. A chapter is devoted to the unexpected on DWTS, including Marie Osmond’s fainting spell, the death of Jane Seymour’s mother, and the various injuries that have put stars out of the competition. With lots of color photos and other tidbits, including show controversies and “fast facts” tucked alongside the text, this is a fun, enlightening read. Grades 6-9. --Ilene Cooper --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.

A thin book but contains great photos of DWTS pros and some of the early contestants. After I "read" this one I read the book by Cheryl Burke, one of the pros who has won the mirror ball several times with her celebrity star. Now THAT was an interesting read about the behind the scenes and also how she got selected to be a pro on the show. I can't really say this book was worth the $$ since it was such a short read.

Adequate in summarizing the facts about the show but you could save a few dollars by going to wikipedia for free and getting all this information and more. I was hoping it would have some good pictures at least of the pro dancers but there aren't any. Basically this is a waste of money.
