The book has not been widely reviewed and it is not yet on a national bestseller list. But the hometown Seattle Post Intelligencer , which folded up last week, wrote: 'While a professional writer wrote the book, Sanjaya's voice comes through, words revealing a thoughtful, self-aware and humble individual who is more than a few outrageous hairstyles.
He told his story to Alan Goldsher, who sent drafts to Sanjaya to edit and approve. Sanjaya's mother Jillian Recchi remarried following her divorce -- Sanjaya was just about 3 then -- and lived on the West Coast. Sanjaya attended over half a dozen schools in 10 years in places like Berkeley, California and Hawaii. He admits he was not good at studies and was more into improving his singing; being part of a gospel choir was part of the process. Nobody could accuse Sanjaya of taking himself seriously, and he confesses a commercial that he shot in India last year for Nationwide Insurance tells a lot about himself.
In the commercial, he is seen standing before a monastery pleading with the guru: 'Oh, great guru ji , please help me. I've tasted fame and fortune. Girls adore me.

But, before you mock me, can I just say I didn't intend to read it, but it was disturbingly addictive and two hours later, I was done with the whole thing. It's like reading essays written by high schoolers or maybe college freshmen.
BIO | Billy Idol
The sheer amount of immaturity combined with thinking they're the coolest, most intelligent, fascinating person in the entire world makes for awesome reading. I Am I seriously the first person on Goodreads to write a review for this? I don't think this book says one single surprising thing about the show the entire time apparently everyone is wonderful and loves each other except for Simon, who can be rude and mean, but that's okay because America wants him to be but it's so earnestly immature about not saying anything I wanted to keep reading anyway.
It gets an extra star just because it entertained me that much. Mar 24, Terri rated it did not like it.
RANKED: The most successful ‘American Idol’ contestants of all time
Impulse library shelf check-out! It's hard to believe this book has a co-writer. It's so poorly written but I don't think it's just because Sanjaya is an inexperienced and young writer. I'm assuming this book is geared towards the tweens or teens that were infatuated with Sanjaya on American Idol, which means it is absolutely boring for an adult to read.
Readers expecting any juicy gossip about Sanjaya's own life, fellow Idol contestants, the "Big Three" Idol judges, or anything else behind Impulse library shelf check-out! Readers expecting any juicy gossip about Sanjaya's own life, fellow Idol contestants, the "Big Three" Idol judges, or anything else behind the scenes will be sorely disappointed I was. I got the impression that Sanjaya was really holding back on this book for fear of being on the "outs" with his former contestants and the whole AI machine.
It was almost painful to read how extremely hard Sanjaya was trying to come across as "cool" there is an overuse of the words "chill" and "chillability", to give you an idea. To sum up something that Simon might say: "Completely forgettable! View 1 comment. Apr 07, Wulfie rated it really liked it. It's really hard to criticize a memoir, because you're criticizing someone's life. That being said, once you get past the clearly inexperienced writing in this book, it's actually a very good read.
A bit cringeworthy at times, but what do you expect from Sanjaya? The book reads like what he seems like on TV, thus further proving how real he is. That, or he's really good at faking it.
