Paris Hilton: A Biography (by Sandra Gurvis)Description

This revealing portrait of the real Paris Hilton gets underneath the hype and hate, the glamour and greed.

Love her or hate her, Paris Hilton has made her mark on contemporary culture. She is both an enigma and a contradiction—a successful entrepreneur and a sexy yet vulnerable woman-child who flits from one tumultuous romance to another and searches on reality TV for that perfect BFF. But what is the truth behind the Hollywood veneer?

Unlike other biographies that range from the exposé to the gushing, Paris Hilton: A Biography is both detailed and objective. It covers Paris's checkered family history, her privileged yet surprisingly unassuming upbringing, and her explosion with sister Nicky as “It Girls” on the international social scene. Readers will learn how her family influenced her, why she made the decision to step into the limelight, and why she continues today, despite her many critics and setbacks.

Each chapter of the biography provides an in-depth view of a specific aspect of Paris's life: her relationship with men and the media, how she turned herself around emotionally and projected a new image, and what makes her such a smart businesswoman. The book also looks at darker moments, including the sex tape, her jail time, and her publicity faux pas. In the end, readers will understand what makes this complex young woman tick—and have a better sense of what it is like to walk a mile in her Manolo Blahniks.

It sounds potentially quite good. And doesn’t sound like a biased hate manual like House of Hilton.

I was going to buy House of Hilton once at the airport when I had a flight, but I didn’t end up buying it. I’ve always been iffy when it comes to these biographies (there was another one that I considered buying. Can’t remember the title… Living on the Edge or something?) because they aren’t official. I wonder if we’ll ever get one from Paris, herself?

Which ones have you guys read?

Books about Paris Hilton, are the most important books ever written! I hope this book explores her adolescent years, and tells us what really happened during that time. This would be most interesting.
