Number-one New York Times best-selling author and investigator Ian Halperin pulls back the curtain on America's notorious Kardashian family - exposing their shaky foundation for fame - one shocking revelation at a time.
The Kardashians and Jenners have taken the world by storm, collectively rising to superfame after making their reality show debut on E! with Keeping up with the Kardashians in 2007. Since then, their family life has remained a constant circus of tabloid headlines, red carpet appearances, branding deals, reality shows and their spin-offs, and a slew of media coverage. As revered and polarizing as royalty, the Kardashians have stolen the celebrity spotlight - and they show no signs of giving it up. And yet, amid their megasuccess, the Kardashians have faced a firestorm of negative publicity over the years - particularly over Kris Jenner's role in the family. As matriarch and momager of the Kardashian clan, Kris has been accused of exploiting her children for fame and money and playing the media like a deck of cards.
Based on extensive research, Ian Halperin delivers the salacious details behind the Kardashians' rise to fame. With revelations exposing the family's foundation as shaky at best and scandalous at worst, Halperin scrutinizes their self-made multimillion-dollar brand. Focusing on three key players - Kris Jenner, Rob Kardashian, and (formerly Bruce) Caitlyn Jenner - Halperin provides an unparalleled glimpse into the events and scandals that have propelled the Kardashians to worldwide celebrity, for better or worse.

"great book if you love to hate the Kardashians. !!"
Ian Halperin is the best...his books are tastefully written, yet give us all the "view from the inside" we all want with celebrities.. A+ Ian. !!!
This is the best book on the Kardashians that I have read so far. Awesome narrator.
"Not worth it"
There is absolutely nothing new in this book. If you keep up with all the magazines and gossip sites you already know everything that's in this book. Not worth it.
A nice chronologically told account that draws heavily from the books Kardashian Confidential and All Things Kardashian. It is nice to hear their whole story told all at once, instead of in bits and pieces.
Hearing Holter Graham act out the different voices cracked me up, especially when he does the voice of Kim.
Holter Graham's Kim Kardashian impression, tho...
Gotta admit I cried a little when it talked about Robert Kardashian's death.
A really fun listen, if you're a fan. If you're not, this will be your hell.
"Focus on Others"
Too much detail about OJ Simpson, Paris Hilton, and other ancillary "characters" without enough detail about the actual family. No real details about the kids, especially Kendall and Kylie, and a decidedly negative spin on the matriarch "momager". All of the family members are "famous" in their own right and the entire story focused on Kris and Kim with virtually no focus on any of the other children. There was so much more that could have been told but was left out for the chance to slam Kris and Kim at every turn. You don't have to love the Kardashians but there is more to their story than OJ and Paris and their contributions to the family's rise to fame.
"Horrible waste of time"
Nothing dramatic or new as far as the Kardashian story. It's one long recap of watching the show...don't waste your time.
The impersonations are HORRIBLE as well.
nothing you wouldn't know by watching the show or even just perusing People once in awhile.
"Not so great."
All the stuff in this book is already out. Nothing new was said. Could have been better.
"No need to read this book. is the same stuff."
Maybe. Not about people who are overexposed in the media. There is no new facts here.
Almost. I do wonder why I paid to read material we all already know too much of for free.
The cocky tone of voice
Burn my ipad and go to church.
Don't bother. If loving to hate the Kardashians is your secret vice, you'll have to hear the same stories we all know and to make it worse, the author LOVES Kris Kardashian and paints her as an innocent Saint and loving mother...So we know who is REALLY behind this book.
No major revelations but the author's undercover digging made the book a nice guilty pleasure.
