I am a huge Dance Moms fan, and I desperately wanted to like this book, but it's probably one of the most poorly written, dishonest, gimmicky things I've ever read. It essentially felt like reading a lengthy Tiger Beat magazine article.

Abby goes to great pains to insult and demean Christi, Chloe, and the Hyland clan, which of course is not news to anyone who is familiar with the show. The fact that she does so doesn't bother me that much; what bothers me is the passive-aggressive methods she uses to pull it off. It's cowardly, exaggerated, and extremely childish.

The book has some sections that are in "question and answer" format. My problem with this is that the questions are clearly invented by Abby in order to facilitate the rant that follows. She's not "giving advice" on how a dancer or a mother should behave; she's merely complaining about all of the negative aspects of her job.

The book is filled with the usual bragging and name-dropping ("I have former students working for Euro-Disney [because I'm still under the false impression that this is meaningful or impressive to people].") and imparts no information upon the reader that one could not discover with a simple Google search and twenty minutes to kill.

The information in the book is also extremely repetitive. The book could have been whittled down to about twenty pages and would have lost nothing content-wise.

I also find it laughable that she spends a decent chunk of time giving advice on how to run a dance business. The woman was formerly a half a million dollars in debt and in bankruptcy proceedings. She paints a picture that she got her act together and single-handedly saved her business from complete failure, when in reality, the only reason she's still in business is because of the reality show. Her business acumen is severely lacking.

The book is also riddled with grammar mistakes, spelling errors, and terrible formatting.

Final Thoughts: The only thing this book succeeds at doing is cementing my conclusion that Abby Lee Miller is is a fickle, immature, emotionally-underdeveloped child with no concept of reality. Save your money, because this book will definitely disappoint.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 The Wicked Witch of Pittsburgh Tries to Justify Her Methods 3 août 2014
Par D. Bell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I have watched Dance Moms from the beginning, and I freely admit I do NOT like Abby Lee Miller. I do think she may be a good dance teacher to a limited extent, but I must admit that I am a bit biased because I love ballet and do not like many of the dances that she has choreographed, which are heavy on aerials and on rolling around on the floor. Does the Swan Queen do a walkover? Does Sleeping Beauty roll on the floor? She does admit that ballet is a basis for all dance, but she does not seem to care for it much. In a later chapter she says that parents should be required to take their children to a Broadway show and the Radio City Music Hall Christmas show. What about The Nutcracker? I have taken my three daughters to see it and own about 5 versions on DVD.

Abby never admits to being nasty, just strict. She's wrong; she's absolutely nasty. She doesn't realize that different kids need to be treated differently, and she also lets her feelings toward the mothers affect the way she treats the kids. She also doesn't seem to value higher education, feeling that kids who go straight to New York or to work in Disneyland or on a cruise ship are ahead of the kids in college. She places no value on kids socializing or doing the usual teen-aged activities, especially when it takes them away from dance class or rehearsal. Her overemphasis on competition is ridiculous. My kids have been to very good dance schools which did not participate in competitions but instead gave performances once a year and occasionally in places like the National Capital Trolley Museum. Schools which are primarily ballet schools do this rather than compete. She also never, to my knowledge, sent a student on to a more specialized school like the one run by the Pittsburgh Ballet.

She also does not value education very highly, encouraging Melissa to homeschool Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler so they can take more dance classes, act, and make videos. Her appreciation of Maddie's talent approaches worship, and she has started referring to Mackenzie as her little star. This leads to jealousy and resentment by other students and their mothers. To my knowledge she has turned out no "stars," although she has produced a number of working dancers. And she should encourage Chloe Lukasiak to go to a ballet school.

To reiterate, there are some good things in this book. But there's too much bad Abby and not enough good Abby.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 ....except how to dance. Or teach dancers. 31 juillet 2014
Par TheBanshee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Abby does not teach dance. Her employees do. On her TV show "Dance Moms," the childless Abby Lee treats her young charges abominably, yelling at them, humiliating them, and pitting them against each other. Worse, she punishes little girls because she didn't like something their motherd did. I call that bullying. At every turn she tries to undermine the mothers' authority as parents. And she tells lies whenever it suits her purposes.
Given all the controversy caused by her behavior on DM, this book seems like an exercise in damage control. I
I wouldn't give Abby a nickel. She is a megalomaniac.
