Donny Osmond, one of the Osmond Brothers, partner with Marie and solo artist, has been in show business for most of his life. He's experienced a life that most of us can't begin to imagine. This book covers his career, but also gives great insight into the man behind the performer. From playing Barbie and Ken with Marie, when he was a little boy, to paralyzing social phobia that began after years of performing, Donny opens his heart and shares his joys and struggles with his readers. He talks of life as an Osmond Brother and their lack of privacy and the perfection that was expected of them. He shares stories of his relationship with Marie and their tv show that was a hit when they were still just teenagers. Going solo presented more challenges for him as he tried to continue his career when his teen heart throb image kept people from taking him seriously. At times, he couldn't find work and he began to consider a life outside the entertainment industry. His Mormon faith was and still is the foundation of his life and he's open and candid about what that means to him. Donny is funny, philosophical and humble as he shares his life story. If you are a Donny Osmond fan, this book is for you.

Update On Dec 01, 2009: As most people now know, Donny won the most recent season of "Dancing With The Stars" and is performing into 2012 in Las Vegas with his sister, Marie.
