9780091898281: I Don't Mean to Be Rude, But...: The Truth about Fame, Fortune and My Life in Music

No one can deny the impact that X Factor judge Simon Cowell has made. His acerbic put-downs and witty one-liners have sparked international debate whilst at the same time earning him a legion of admirers. Cowell's own story has all the brutal honesty you'd expect. I Don't Mean to be Rude, But...is as compulsive, entertaining and hard-hitting as his trademark insults. With tips and advice on becoming a star from the man who knows how to make it happen, this book is the ultimate through-the-keyhole view inside the music industry. But it wouldn't be complete without setting the record straight about those trousers, and the truth about the women in his life. In the fully updated paperback edition of I Don't Mean to be Rude, But...Simon predicts the future for the X Factor winners and dishes the dirt on American Idol. It's a complusive read and as compelling as the man himself.

About the Author:

Simon Cowell was born in 1959 and lived near Elstree Studios, North London. He began his career in the EMI mailroom and is now worth over GBP35 million. He owns the TV production company Simcow with BMG.

Review:

"Zesty account of his life - it's got all the fun stuff" Heat "It's impossible not to be engrossed - he comes across as you'd expect - arrogant, egotistical, opinionated and totally magnetic" Daily Mirror "An engrossing read. Simon is a very interesting bloke, so we suggest you give this a quick squiz" Star Magazine "Fans and enemies of Simon Cowell will be engrossed in this inspiring story of his rocky road to fame" OK magazine "Love him or hate him, you've got to admire the high-trousered one. And this autobiog is actually pretty damn compelling" Heat
