KIM by Sean Smith

The definitive biography of the world’s number-one reality star, Kim Kardashian West—the savvy entrepreneur and fashion forward woman who has defined fame for today’s generation—from the UK's leading celebrity biographer.

A thoroughly modern woman, Kim Kardashian West, the daughter of headline-making lawyer Robert Kardashian, grew up like a princess in a Beverley Hills mansion. As a young girl, Kim’s ambition was to appear on The Real World, the groundbreaking hit series. But reality proved even bigger than her dreams, when just a few years later she became the star of her own smash show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

While Keeping Up with the Kardashians took us into Kim’s privileged world and made her a household name, the details of her life story—murder, elopement, domestic violence, a sex tape, a quickie divorce, religious worship, and unbelievably glamorous designer fashions—played out like an X-rated version of the 1980s soap opera Dynasty. But Kim’s story has only just begun. Married for a second time—to one of the biggest stars on the planet, Kanye West—she has begun her own dynasty with the birth of daughter, North, and another baby due in November 2015.

Filled with delicious, painstakingly researched, eye-popping detail, KIM uncovers what it took for Kim to rise to the top—and how she intends to stay there. Sean Smith offers a multidimensional portrait of this remarkable woman, exploring her childhood, her family, her turbulent love life, and her glitzy multi-millionaire lifestyle. From her fabulous fashion-sense, to her world-famous physique, to her devotion to her family, including her relationship with her stepparent, Bruce Jenner and his transition to Caitlyn Jenner, this sensational, addictive biography tells the unvarnished truth about the undisputed Queen of Celebrity—the real story of Kim Kardashian.

If this is your level of reading you'd be better off with comic books. Like major sleaze .

EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE ACCESS TO THIS BOOK! There is a little something all he way to a lot of somethings in this book for those that actually open their hearts and mind enough to benefit from it in some way. Even if it is purely looked at from an informative standpoint it would enlighten even the coldest judgemental haters out there to simply have their arguments actually limited to the facts. This is a very intricate and well written book that features more characters than just the well known (or not well known) Dash Clan. There are many back stories that at first annoyed me but as it always ends up bringing the story then full circle I quickly recognized the flow, relaxed, and even began to enjoy the side stepping way the book was arranged. Topics do not always flow in chronological order. I will be writing my own book in an ATTEMPT TO GET OFF DISABILITY. Not sure where to start but I know exactly what I hope it will do. The way you will reach woman in battered situations as I once was in just can't even be measured in worth! Ah yes and I'm sure you guessed by now....yep you got it...I will be chamging my name to whatever pen name I choose in the book along with people places things and even some genders in order to attempt to remain private if not unknown. Of course that's on the off chance I may actually reach my target audience and then some. I want to let you know that although I have been planning this for a while you are the singular thing that actually got the ball rolling for sure. Kim, it wasn't your fame, your beauty, your hard-working ethics...not your fahion sense...although some of those things along w/ some good old fashion curiosity. It was simply you being you and trying to tell your story as transparently as possible. It was the way your words made me feel inside about myself and feelimg protective of you naturally when reading about your marraige. Then realizing that "whoa...that used to be me. Then all of a sudden it hit me. I COULD ACTUALLY do something similar...not as POWERFUL but to help ANYONE feel less alone than they feel right now...what an inspiration you've been at exacly the right time! Truly beautiful from the inside out. Simply by truthfully telling your story you will touch thousands...possibly millions of people...especially women worldwide. Women will universally be better informed to make better choices for themselves, others, and especially to not fear getting into the business of others...especially their daughters, sisters, and even some mothers of their own and others.
