Given the extent of Amy Winehouse's success and notoriety, the only surprise is that it has taken this long for her to acquire such status.

Amy Amy Amy - Nick Johnstone. It was December 2007 and the photograph was shocking, as so many of the photographs of Amy Winehouse since have been shocking. Consider the facts at the time of this photograph that seems now like a prophecy of doom, the moment in the Amy Winehouse story when she crossed over from being a strong, opinionated maverick to being tragic: here was a supremely talented singer, songwriter, musician and performer, age 24, sitting at that young age at the top of the pile.

Amy Winehouse's erratic journey to fame – from her North London family home, through her meteoric rise to stardom and the two seminal albums that captured the world – has been consistently tangled with her well-publicised problems with alcohol and drugs, self-harm and personal relationships. Her extraordinary musical gifts are often overlooked

Nick Johnstone's biography of Amy, titled Amy Amy Amy: The Amy Winehouse Story, explores her life before . Reading Amy Amy Amy is just like reading the tabloids. The interviews contain much hearsay, and several interviewees had very brief contact with Amy Winehouse.

Nick Johnstone's biography of Amy, titled Amy Amy Amy: The Amy Winehouse Story, explores her life before and during notoriety from a British perspective. He details the events that led her down fame's path and speculates about her personal demons. This is the first biography of the big-haired songstress, and so the book reads as hasty and formulaic. Nonetheless the reader is intrigued, driven to find out just what other crazy anecdotes Amy's life holds.

Amy Amy Amy tracks Winehouse's erratic journey to fame from her North London Jewish family home, detailing her meteoric rise to stardom, the two albums that catapulted her to the top and her death in 2011. Her well publicized problems with drugs, anorexia, bulimia and suspected self-harm kept her in the headlines, always threatening to obscure her undiminished singing talent

AMY AMY AMY redresses the imbalance, giving full measure to Winehouse’s talent while offering an honest account of her multiple personal crises in this absorbing and entertaining biography of an exceptionally gifted performer.

This book as about as good as it gets for the biography of a rising star who is still in her twenties. It's great for the hardcore Amy fan but I'm not sure anyone else would be very interested at this point in time as so much of her young life has transpired since its writing and her musical career continues to evolve.

Meh. . .
Really hoped this book was better; IMHO coulda been but if you are seeking sad circumstances blithely transcribed
In a life cut short by bad choices this is it.
RIP girlfriend you were amazing.

Pity you could not have the luxury of such bittersweet but hard won reminiscence

This book is informative and only marginally sensationalized. Not enough b4 photos. ie; b4 tats & weightloss.

Like another recent "biography" of Amy WInehouse, this book suffers from being a hastily compiled rehashing of tabloid stories. The one section that gives us a little insight into Amy as a musician is a chapter in which the author quotes several people who worked with the singer on her first album. Unfortunately, the book also contains a lot of filler: endless descriptions of the tube station in Amy's childhood neighborhood and other useless trivia. The author was denied interviews with Winehouse and her close associates, and this severely limits the scope of the book. The story ends around December 2007, so it's already out of date--one of the perils of trying to write a book-length biography of a 24-year-old. Skip the book and listen to Amy's albums. Despite her well-publicized troubles, the woman can sing.

This is an interesting historical account of Amy Winehouse's early years. She has immense talent, and I was a fan the first time I heard her voice. I would not have guessed she's a caucasion, Jewish, British girl. This book is pretty much a gathering of facts without the emotion or feeling that Amy would add to a book. It's informative and easy to read. I love Amy's music and wanted to find out more about her and I did. I was also looking for reason for her self-destructive behaviour, but I'll have to wait for her autobiography, which is due out soon. In the meantime, this book will suffice. The photos were good too.
