This book contains everything for the bona fide "American Idol" buff. Starting with the very beginnings of Idol, it contains a complete rundown of all preceding 9 seasons, plus background info on the contestants, judges, Ryan Seacrest and other interesting trivia. Choc full of B&W and color photos, each season covered in this book contains info on all the contestants of that year, their backgrounds, where they are now, and the standout performances of that particular seaon, plus "yearbook-like" mug shots of each contestant for each season.

However, I am only giving it a 4-star rating because I have discovered some typos and discrepancies between what is listed in the book and what die-hard fans remember from each season. Also, I feel this book could have waited a bit longer to be published in order to include the Season 10 ("Class of 2011") contestants as well.

Otherwise, this is a fun treasure trove for die-hard AI buffs and one I would recommend.

I bought this book only because of the chapter on Season 7, my favorite season, and I must say it was great! Lots of behind the scenes pictures, plus some interesting facts. Right away turning to the Season 7 chapter and seeing the blown up picture of David Cook amongst his fellow Idols as he sang "Time of My Life", I knew the Season 7 chapter would be a good one. Quite a bit of information in the book is incorrect, but all in all I enjoyed the book. Lots of David Archuleta in it, and that's always a good thing ;)

Being a diehard American Idol fan, I knew that this was going to be the perfect book for me when I ordered it. Was it all that I expected? Yes - all that, and more! This book is made out to be a yearbook of the first nine seasons, and I really enjoyed the never-before-seen photographs, as well as the "Where are they now" updates on each of the top 10 contestants from the first nine seasons. Beautifully put together!

This book is a MUST-HAVE for ANY American Idol fan on your list!

There were a few minor errors in the book that only diehard fans would pick up. I only knew of their existence because the author mentioned them on Twitter. Overall, I really enjoyed the book and know the friend, whom I bought it for, will love it!
