Overview

Jason Priestley, star of the iconic hit television series Beverly Hills, 90210 and one of the biggest teen idols of the 1990s, chronicles the highs and lows of his life and career in this charming and honest memoir.

The hit Fox show Beverly Hills, 90210 became a cultural touchstone of the 1990s and propelled its young cast to mega-stardom, including Jason Priestley, who played honorable Midwestern transplant Brandon Walsh. Yet despite more than twenty years in and out of the limelight, Priestley has carefully maintained his privacy. In this compelling memoir, the actor, director, and race-car aficionado invites us into his private world for the first time.

With humor, sincerity, and charm, Priestley offers little-known details about his life and stories of his nine years in America’s most famous zip code. He talks candidly about celebrity, marriage, fatherhood, and his passion for car racing. He does not shy away from the devastating lows—his brief jail sentence for drunk driving and the crash at the Kentucky Speedway that nearly took his life. Priestley shares his innermost thoughts about life as a ’90s icon, and goes beyond the Brandon Walsh squeaky-clean image, revealing the tumultuous events that have shaped him, and where he finds his greatest happiness today.

    I bought this book Tuesday and just finished it this morning. Ja

    I bought this book Tuesday and just finished it this morning. Jason Priestley was one of my favorite actors growing up. I was and still am obsessed with Beverly Hills 90210.
    I just finished Jennie Garths books as well and although I loved her book Jason's was much better written and the details were more spot on. I think this is a great book for any fan of his or the shows.

    Just OK

    First of all, if you read any of the sneak peeks about Shannen Doherty, you've read about half of the 90210 gossip in this book. This guy comes off as extremely self-absorbed (shocking for an actor, I know) and completely closed off. Besides going to great lengths to point out that he was the star on 90210 and not Brandon Walsh in real life, he goes into no detail about virtually anything. He hints abouts stuff, flip-flops on whether or not he had any issues with substance abuse, recalls a short story here or there. He certainly took care to make himself look good, though, while seeming to sell out a few people along the way. It's certainly not a 90210 book, it's not even really a memoir. It reads like a begrudingly series of half-told stories with a ehole lot of details left out. It's an easy read, perfect for vacation, but don't expect to come away with much from thid.

    Really enjoyed

    So enjoyed this book and couldn't put it down til I finished. I didn't know much about the author other than 90210 and appreciated his relish of life experiences good and bad. The name dropping was fun. Just finished Jennie Garth's book and this was a good follow up. I gave a five star rating because it was such fun and I appreciate Jason sharing his life in print
