I bought a biography of Olivia's life many years ago and was looking forward to getting an update regarding her marriages, her illness, daughter and many other things. Sadly and very disappointingly for me,whilst many pages were devoted to Xanadu and suchlike, there seemed to be hardly any insight into Olivia's real way of life, her thinking, how she coped from day to day with the great worry and the effects of cancer, and barely a mention of Chloe.

Olivia Newton-John is an English-Australian singer and songwriter who has won four Grammy Awards in her career. She is an actress as well, known for her roles in films such as the musical ‘Grease’.

She reached stardom after her Grammy Award winning hits ‘I Honestly Love You’ and ‘Physical’.

I haven't finished this and I doubt I will, so perhaps this isn't a good example. I assumed this would be a biography based on the authors own interviews and time spent with Olivia. Rather, it seems most information was pulled from other media sources including Bruce Welch's own autobiography (as there is almost an entire chapter based on HIS experience with Olivia).

Love Olivia and loved the book! It wasn't all glitz and glamour for her but she made an amazing life for herself. Now I pray for quick healing for her as she once again battled cancer!
  • Bodwyn
Great book about a great performer and amazing person. Born with talent and beauty, an incredible and rare combination. This accounting of her life is fairly comprehensive and fills in all the blanks. Tells a great story.

I am looking forward to reading a boook about one of my young adult idols. I have loved all the movies she has been in, and I feel this book will hopefully tell alot of detailks about her life that I don't already kno0w. She is one of the celebrities that I admire.

Thank you very much for your fast service, and the great condition of the book.

Good book
  • thrust
great book thank you!
I thought when I bought it that it was written in 2012 but it was 2008 and reprinted in 2012. I still liked it as it was Olivia Newton-John whom I love. I love getting books on things or people whom I like and even some books on things that I like but really don't know much about and it brings to me another sense of knowing. I don't have someone to reccomend this to as I'm the Olivia Newton-John person who loves her enough to buy the book.
