Self-titled and self-produced, Zayn awards us with a view of his life pre, during, and post 1D. But the book isn’t really about 1D at all. It’s a sprawling and eclectic work of song notes, photographs of Malik, and a few pieces of his own personal art. It provides us, through the sentimental stories and heartwarming positivity that Malik weaves in every page, with a rare inside look at the person - not the popstar.

It’s romantic at times, simply in the personal and casual nature with which the book presents itself. You can imagine Malik spilling his life’s story to you at a barbecue, and the words seem pulling directly from his own thoughts. There's no ghostwriting here, and it's refreshing to see a celebrity's "personal account of their life" actually be their OWN personal account, and not an interviewer trying to hammer in the person's syntax in every sentence. These are Zayn's words, emphatic and innocent and so very relatable.

There’s not much sugar-coating, either. It’s honest and real, two things that Malik has professed to always striving for, and I must say he definitely succeeds. He details his struggles with an eating disorder, as well as crippling anxiety and self-doubt. It’s equal parts heart wrenching and hopeful. He vows to perform, vows to make his fans and his family proud, and you find yourself rooting for him to do just that. Though Malik pulls no punches, describing his feelings about lack of control in his life that led to his eating disorder, there’s a wistfulness to his words. Never cynical or even histrionic, but occasionally weathered after the vast amount of life he’s lived already, the book also serves as a true reminder that Malik is only twenty-two years old.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll probably know who Zayn is—or at least have heard of him once or twice. Normal British teenager turned pop-star overnight, becoming one of the five members of a massive boyband, touring all over the world, selling hundreds of millions of albums, topping charts, and then suddenly leaving, seemingly out of nowhere. When he left the band in March 2015, Zayn broke a ton of hearts (not mine– I’d actually never even liked One Direction, but I thought he was both very attractive and the only talented one among the five). Many thought that they’d never get to hear him sing, but a year later, Zayn was #1 in 78 countries with his bestselling debut album. He’s now designing a fashion line with Donnatella Versace and Guiseppe Zannotti, is a producer for a TV show, and is also a bestselling author.

In Zayn, he tells his side of the story. Zayn’s often talked about how the media and his former management have projected an image on him that he doesn’t deserve. And it’s true—Zayn became known, out of nowhere, as the “bad boy” of the group, the mysterious, private, brooding brown kid who was so different to his bubbly bandmates. Sure, from the exterior, the stereotype can be applied. Covered in tattoos with an unkempt beard and a sharp buzzcut, Zayn walks around in heavy boots, leather jackets, cigarette dangling from his mouth. But his book provides a very different side to him. Strip back the layer that’s been presented to you, and a charming young boy comes to the forefront.

What have I learned about Zayn after reading this book? That he loves his mother more than anything in the world, and constantly talks about her. He loves to read and write—every lyric he pens down means something to him. He likes to eat samosas, and can cook.

I was introduced to Zayn via NBC's The Voice and was hooked to him as an artist immediately. I knew of One Direction, sure, but I couldn't name one song or one band member if you put a gun to my head. I just don't follow them, I'm fifty years old! But I do love music, of all kinds, and Zayn was a guest singer on the Voice, where he played "Like I Would". It as magucal. I bought the CD the next day. The album is phenomenal, I've played it constantly and dont get fatigued by it, it only seems to improve the more you listen. I cannot believe how many great tracks are in this debut work! I can't think of a more amazing CD in the last 5 years. Just great beats, honest but smart writing, great grooves.
Malik has the cool suave grooves of a Bryan Ferry crossed with the deep hipness of Maxwell. It would be cool if Zayn covered one of their songs! I bought this book today because I find Zayn has a charismatic style and is an intriguing artistic personality. I love his style, he's a charming person. I'm a creative person myself and I love the images I see of him. He's definitely photogenic, but Zayn transcends the typical "pop-ie" tweeny pics out there, his photographs are artisticly quirky which I think Zayn kinda is, too. He certainly breaks the mold, as any real artist does, not out of a conscious need to, but as a matter of existential being.
The book itself is very cool, structured but also laid-back. I like that it's like Zayn, 'eff' words strewn here and there, not watered down. If you love love his CD "MInd of Mine" and this book is a great way to better know the talented artist behind it. I can't to see and hear what's next from him.
