Overview

She still wondered, "Am I good enough? Am I pretty enough? Will they like me?" It was the burden that made her great and the part that caused her to stumble in the end. If you could hear me, no I would tell you, you weren't just good enough, you were great. — Kevin Costner

We all read the same stories and found ourselves believing the rumors. The stories of drug use and drunken nights out, her problems with money and marriage, and even those about how much Kevin Costner despised working with her on the film, The Bodyguard, because of her diva-like ways. But quotes like the one above, along with everything else Kevin Costner shared about his friendship with Whitney Houston, can't help but make you wonder just how misunderstood she really was.

This book takes you full circle through Whitney Houston's life, starting with her first solo in her mother's choir at the New Hope Baptist Church in New Jersey to her funeral in that very same church. Every page will give you more and more insight into the tragic superstar, leaving you with an understanding of just how incredible she was, even when the tabloids were declaring otherwise.

Most of the information in this book was known. The title made it seem like it would have some behind the scenes information. This book only bashed Bobby Brown as if he was the only reason for Whitney's downfall.

What a sad story - Whitney was so talented and such a star, it's sad to see her go. This book reminded me all of the great things Whitney did in her life (and some of the bad things too). The book is well written and gives readers a look at Whitney Houston's life and death. I recommend it to any Whitney Houston fan.

This was a very bad excuse for a biography. It was as basic an surface as possible. Spoke very little of the true person and repeatedly came across as just the writers opinion. It is the quality of a high school history paper. Believe me I am no Bobby Brown fan but I do know for a fact that he was not the cause of that women's addiction. Nobody gets you high. You get yourself high.
