Overview

Out of Sync by Lance Bass

At sixteen, Lance Bass received a phone call from Justin Timberlake that would change his life forever. Soon after, he left his small-town home in Clinton, Mississippi, to join an emerging musical group called *NSYNC. Two years later *NSYNC was inspiring Beatles-esque mania around the world, becoming the face of the new MTV generation, and earning the all-time record for most album sales in a single day (more than one million) and in a single week for No Strings Attached.

He's remained in the spotlight ever since, and here he talks in depth for the first time about his childhood, his astonishing experiences as a young man and Christian growing up in one of the biggest bands in the world, his shock and frustration at the band's eventual dissolution, and his subsequent career, including his four months in Russia, training to become a cosmonaut.

He also frankly discusses life as a gay man — his first same-sex relationship at twenty-one, his struggle to keep his sexuality hidden from *NSYNC's fans in case it jeopardized the band's success, and the true circumstances that led to his decision to publicly come out at the age of twenty-seven.

Full of fascinating behind-the-scenes lore and revealing insights from a pop star who, until now, has been notoriously private, Out of Sync is the book that millions of fans have been waiting for.

This is a great first chapter into the life of Lance Bass. This a great book for any NSYNC/Lance Bass. I couldn't put this book down. I wished it could have been longer, but that's ok because I know there will more from Lance in the future. I especially like the in-depth detail into Lance's space exploration days. Thank you Lance!!!

I really enjoyed reading this book. He opened up so much and I feel I know him better. There were some things in the book that really shocked me or I never knew about. If anyone is debating to get this book, I HIGHLY recommend it. I am still a huge fan of his.

Anyone who laughed at the girls screaming, sneered at how much money they were making, ever said, 'They're just singers and dancers', laughed at the 'singer' who wanted to go to space, and sneered at the People headline 'That's not news.' should read this book. I think the jokes would stop. Even I was surprised at the truth. Lance tells everything very matter if factly and sometimes painfully and doesn't dish any dirt. You have to admire him for that. This is the tale of his life mistakes and all. You see the dreams, the set-backs, the betrayals, the struggles and finally Lance breaking free to be freely himself. But through it all Lance had/ has his faith, humor, friends and even in the end his family. As so many peole have said you want to give Lance a big hug. What a life and he made it through. I think I'll go back and read it again.

I was a big NSYNC fan and got to see them 6 times in person! Lance was always my favorite! I couldn't wait to read the book, though it was overpriced (25 dollars for 200 pages-should be $16!). It was an eye opening look at Lance's life (since he hardly ever got to get a word in). I feel bad for the boys of NSYNC in how Justin was favored over everyone, but I could see this coming from miles away-from when they first hit America in 1998! Not a shocker that he's a solo star. But, Lance seems like a very grounded, wise, smart individual and I hope to see more of him in the media in the future. As far as the 'juicy' details of NSYNC (drugs, sex with groupies, bad behavior), I guess we'll just have to wait for Behind The Music or E True Hollywood Story. But, a great read for any NSYNC fan! Love you Lance!

I thought this was a very good book. Lance tells you about some of the things happening behind the scenes with NSYNC. From how the band started all the way to the end of the band. It also showed you what Lance was going through with his personal life. It helps people to understand how difficult things can be in this world. I would easily recommend this book.

I loved reading this, I never wanted to put it down, but I just felt like I was Lance while reading it, and I'm glad that he cleared some stuff up for us fans, since I've been a fan since 1998, and I really cried while reading it, it's that touching. I SO wanted to reached out to hug him and tell him I'm sorry on what he went though for all that time. Anyone that is a fan of *NSYNC I recommend this book because Lance tells you want happened during those years on what he went through with the guys in *NSYNC.

I bought the book from B&N online and I was happy that it was shipped to me on time. It took me a couple hours to read the book and so many parts of it made me want to cry and give Lance a big hug. I've been a huge fan of his and of the groups since the very beginning and I was sad when they decided to call it quits. It's was finally good to read exactly what went on and how it all ended plus how he felt when his dreams of going into space were pretty much crushed and he realized he wasn't going. This book even though it was somewhat of a quick read really helped put into perspective the last year of the band as well Lance's struggle in coming out and how hard that was for him to come out to especially to his parents. I'm truly glad that he can finally just be who he is and be able to live his life the way he wants to. Lance if you read this. So many of your fans are extremely proud of you!

Lance Bass is one of my idols bc he proved that its ok 2 b urself. Also N*SYNC is one of the best boy bands ever. Well next to BACKSTREET BOYS! I also absolutely LOVE Ellen DeGeneres. You and Portia are perfect together. She has helped me get thru my own difficulties and taught me it doesnt matter who u r. Just as long as ur happy in ur own skin

I purchased Out of Sync as soon as I heard that Lance wrote a book. I used to be a huge fan of *NSync, and Lance was generally my favorite member. This book provides great insight into what it was like for him growing up, how he came to be in *NSync (and the stories that resulted), and how he handled being gay through all of it. The story of how, and even why he had to "come out of the closet" was very interesting, and sheds some light on the world of being a celebrity in a tabloid-driven world. This was absolutely worth the purchase for me. The book will make you laugh and maybe even cry, and is one of my favorite biographies.
