To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I loved him as a little girl, he seemed so sweet. And was saddened to hear of his arrests. I enjoyed the book, gave an insight to what really went on behind the scenes. Though I was disappointed in the abrupt end at 2010. I really did want to see how he progressed in his later years, but perhaps that will come in another book when he's ready. I'd like to think he's living his best life, and he is at peace and content. He deserves some happiness.
Love, love, loved reading this nook and getting to know Leif. I'm 60 now and remember seeing a lot of Leif on tv in my younger days. I loved "I was made for dancing". I hear it every now and then on the radii. I am from Australia. I hope Leif does well in the future.
I have read a lot if memoirs and this is one of the best reads in a long time. Honest and so down to earth. I don't want it to end. Dud , you are amazing I too grew up in the same era and remember you in all the teen magazines but I was too poor to buy them but my girlfriend would let me read hers. I was in a fog through out the 70's and I was more into punk but your face was everywhere. I am so happy you came clean and keep strong ...fight fight fight and if you write another book I shall be reading that one too.
Being in my 50's, I remember Leif grazing the cover of the magazines, but never really knew why. He sang cheezy cover songs and acted...a little. After reading this lame and predictable 'memoir', I guess I was right - he really had little talent and was just well marketed. Not unlike many celebrities of today, he was thrust into a toxic environment, by a selfish mother, and paid the price. And like many celebrities, turned to dangerous substances to get through it all. Sad story for sure, but reading the book itself was not very well written.
Ich war damals als Teenie ein Fan von Leif und habe in den letzten Jahren immer mal wieder die Neuigkeiten über ihn gelesen. Jetzt aus erster Hand zu lesen, was wirklich geschehen ist, war sehr interessant. Das Englisch war gut zu verstehen für mich.
Sou fascinada por histórias de teen idols da década de 70 e quando soube que Leif tinha lançado sua biografia fiquei bem interessada em ler. É uma pena que um jovem tão promissor tenha se perdido no meio do caminho. Imagino que se ele não tivesse virado cantor sua vida tomaria outro rumo. Mas entre altos e baixos, ele teve momentos felizes em sua vida. Eu estava esperando que ele falasse do David Cassidy (outro teen idol que fez sucesso no início dos anos 70) tendo em vista que ambos trabalharam no mesmo filme mas não rolou, por isso minhas 4 estrelas.
Amazing...I can't stop reading. A HEART BIGGER THAN THE WORLD, WHICH HAD HIS MOMENTS OF GLORY, BUT ALSO HAD HIS MOMENTS OF PAIN AND SUFFERING. I SUFFERED IMAGINING A YOUNG MAN, GOING THROUGH EVERYTHING HE WENT.
