Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

How can you sell 60 million albums, become a world famous humanitarian, and still remain secretive? Ricky Martin became an international star two decades ago as a Menudo teenager, but this autobiography stands as his first full true full self-disclosure. Me describes the multiple transformations of a former Puerto Rican altar boy into a "Livin' la Vida Loca" international pop idol sensation, into the man he is today. This heartfelt memoir describes, among many things, Martin's difficult struggle coming to terms with his sexuality. Now in paperback and NOOK Book in both English and Spanish!

Library Journal
Forget about "Livin' la Vida Loca." What pop megastar Martin offers is more like "Livin' la Vida Espiritual." He reviews his career, from his years toiling in the boy band Menudo, to acting in soap operas, to launching his solo singing career. By the late 1990s, Martin topped the Latin charts, dominated the world with the "La Copa de la Vida," the anthem for the 1998 World Cup, and quickly won over the English-language market. A chance encounter in Bangkok with a fellow Puerto Rican (and former Buddhist monk) set Martin on a spiritual journey, and the results permeate this book. At its worst, this memoir is superficial, redundant, and full of easy platitudes. At its best, Martin provides an insightful look at personal issues, such as his decision to become a father through surrogacy. Sexual identity—both his struggle with understanding his own sexuality and his decision, earlier this year, to reveal that he is gay—is an important theme, and one that Martin handles well. Verdict Avoiding any name-dropping, sensationalism, or self-exploitation, Martin takes the high road. As a result, this earnest memoir will appeal solely to Martin's serious fan base.—Brian Kenney, Library Journal

    An author? He's NOT!

    The first few chapters of the book are interesting as we get to see Ricky Martin's determination and drive to become a singer from an early age. It's amazing how someone so young could be so focused on performing on stage, on composing music, and singing. Mr. Martin is a talented and energetic performer with an abundance of charisma, and charm. However, after a few chapters the writing becomes boring and repetative. Too much technical information about how the music industry runs their business. It was a chore to turn the page and have him rattle on and on about it. I skimmed through the last few chapters bored to tears.

    Good, But....

    This is a great story of a great singer, but Mr. Martin could have used a editor that would have made the last half of the book to flow like the first half.

    We learned about him growing up, becoming a member of Menudo, and his career in soap operas. There wasn't too much about his career during La Vida Loco, She Bang, etc.

    Then we enter the "needs editing" section. We learn about his passion about ending human trafficking, a noble cause. But without the editing it becomes a very self serving piece of writing. The same is true about the birth of his twins. Another great move he has done, but it comes across very concetied.

    I wish there were more about his coming out. He makes it see so easy, which is not the same for many people taking that journey.

    This book could have been so much more.

    Surprising

    The depth of emotion and spirit on display in this memoir was beautifully surprising. While I have been a fan of Ricky Martin for years, one does not generally expect more than fluff from a singer's memoir. This book more than delivers. Passion, emotion, struggle, perserverance, and finding his true self all make this story compelling and universal. Inspiring! If you didn't love him before this memoir, you will after finishing it! Brilliant! You go, Ricky!

    Who is Ricky Martin? How come I've never heard of him? Oh yeah, all I listen to is christian music, which happens to be amazing!!! Go to the station 88.3 fm. Don't worry, it's not that old gospel music, which people seem to dislike. It's actually modern music, just with encouraging or life story lyrics. I dare you to try it! If you have questions or comments, post them here to "klove13" :)

    Great Singer, Lousy Writer

    I wanted to like this book, I really did. I thought that maybe there would be something insightful in these pages about a man growing up in a conservative Christian, Latin household, coming to terms with his sexuality. Instead, Ricky Martin speaks in code, constantly referring to his homosexuality as "his truth," focusing more energies on his heterosexual love affairs, and patting himself not he back for his humanitarian efforts.

    Interesting Read

    I picked this up on a whim. It was worth a read. I never knew Ricky Martin had so much depth. It was interesting to read about who he really is, and his values and beliefs. I would especially suggest this book to anyone struggling with their spiritual beliefs or their sexuality. It's nice to see that he has struggles just like anyone else.

    Disappointed

    This book starts out OK but then turns into a something you would hear at an hour's session of psychotherapy. Dull reading after 2 or 3 chapters. Many chapters are duplicating the same information.

    Very moving!

    I have been a fan of Ricky since he was a star in Latin America. This was a very interesting book. It was a little tough to get through, but it was obvious that the passion was so very real. Ricky starts with his amazing drive to become a member of Menudo, and his spiritual quest to become the best that he could be. It was obvious that the book needed a lot more editing, but aside from that, it was also obvious that it was written from his soul. I found his tails of traveling and his endless quest to become one with himself to be inspiring. There is so much more to this man than just his amazing voice, and incredible talent. I found myself smiling a lot while reading, and it filled in a lot of spaces about what was really going on. His life is not just rolled out to be something for the tabloids. It is so much deeper. His work to end the slavery of young girls, and everything that he has put into the endeavor is heart warming. His passion for his beautiful little boys is truly beautiful. The fact that he "came out", is just a wonderful release for him, and for us. It makes a lot of sense, and was certainly not a huge surprise. I am so happy that he is so happy! He has written his truth, in his own words, in his own way. I wish him the very best with the rest of his life, and I just love him even more!!

    Interesting read, but tends to be vague.

    I like Ricky Martin an his accomplishments, but he tends to be vague in his personal life-which is what I thought the point of the book was. Doesn't mention much about his sexuality, which is a huge deal! I would not read this again.
