Présentation de l'éditeur

In April 2009, a modest middle-aged woman from a village in Scotland was catapulted to global fame when the YouTube video of her audition for Britain's Got Talent touched the hearts of millions all over the world.

From singing karaoke in local pubs to live performance with an eighty-piece orchestra in Japan's legendary Budokan arena and a record-breaking debut album, Susan Boyle has become an international superstar.

This astonishing transformation has not always been easy for Susan, faced with all the trappings of celebrity, but in the whirlwind of attention and expectation, she has always found calm and clarity in music. Susan was born to sing.

Now, for the first time, Susan tells the story of her life and the challenges she has struggled to overcome with faith, fortitude and an unfailing sense of humour.

'When I strutted onto the stage for that audition, I was a scared wee lassie, still grieving for my mother, not caring how I looked. I think I've grown up a lot in the last year, become more of a lady, and I'm not so frightened anymore. I'm telling my story to try and show that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, that you shouldn't just look at the label - you must look at the whole person, emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually. I hope that it will show that dreams are not impossible, if you've got courage and a willingness to go on no matter what the circumstances.'

Si on maîtrise l'anglais, ce livre est un vrai régal.
Susan Boyle parle de sa vie jusqu'au jour magique de sa découverte par le public au cours d'un show télévisé en Angleterre
Parcours inouï d'une femme que la vie n'avait apparemment pas destinée à être ce qu'elle est devenue aujourd'hui.
L'écriture est toute en simplicité et délicatesse, pleine d'empathie et d'auto-dérision, et rend très bien ce que l'artiste a vécu tout au long des 47 années qui ont précédé cette extraordinaire ascension

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Inspiring Journey 13 octobre 2010
Par Carol Clifton - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
If this book does not inspire you, you simply cannot be inspired! A poignant, but often hilarious journey with Susan Boyle from her humble beginnings to her dizzying heights of success. This is a book for people of all faiths. One of struggle,courage,and determination. It should be in the hands of anyone who has ever struggled with being considered "different", of those who work with young people, or people with any kind of disability, and anyone who simply enjoys a good story well told.

I just finished reading Susan's book through laughter and tears! Her story is such an inspiring one for all of us! Through sheer determination she has fought against the stigma of "disability" to share her God given talent with us. This is a "must read". I felt like she was sitting with me, telling me her personal story. Well done!!!

I couldn't put this book down. For those who have not kept up with Susan she is revealed as very intelligent, warm & witty and a very strong person. I admire her so much and hope others will gain a new understanding of this wonderful woman.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Susan Boyle the Scottish Wonderwoman 14 octobre 2010
Par bridgit - Publié sur

I received the Kindle version of Susan Boyle's new book at approximately 3:00 am on Oct. 12 and, since I happened to be awake, naturally started reading it! I read the book straight through and finished it around 6:00am because I simply could not put it down!
In the book Susan is at times both open and funny, honest and determined, humble and reflective, about the extraordinary series of events that brought her--and her voice--to world-wide fame.
From her difficult, late-in-life birth to a courageous and faith-filled mother, through her traumatic school years of being bullied and misunderstood, on to her own amazing, but slow, discovery that she possessed a truly remarkable voice, and of course, on through the spring of 2009 when the world discovered it too.
Faith, determination, courage, humor,honesty; these are the words I would use to describe Susan Boyle both in following her dream to be a "professional singer" and in writing this little gem of a book. I considered it a highly enjoyable and, at times sad, read, and would highly recommend it to any fan, or even non-fan, of Susan Boyle. Now I have to go read it again.

Just as her literal overnight recognition was like being "hit by a demolition ball," Susan Boyle has penned an autobiography recounting her life leading up to that amazing moment in cyber-history and the year since, with amazingly deep, surprisingly astute, and poignantly honest reflections.

Not only was the world captivated by her voice, but her story will leave the reader at times, tearful, amazed, amused and impressed with her courage, her candor and her eloquence.

There is only one Susan Boyle, but there are pieces of Susan Boyle in all of us. How she has dealt with challenges her entire life, including her new-found fame can be an inspiration and guide to us all.

The subtitle "MY Story" needs an addendum...."My Story, So Far" because from all accounts, this wee lassie is going to be adding some incredible chapters to her life from here.
