Everybody's favorite "mom-ager " Kris Jenner shares her never-before-told story of the savvy businesswoman behind the multi-million dollar Kardashian empire.

You think you know her . . .

The Kardashians are famous for letting it all hang out. Whether they're moving cross-country, settling a family feud, dealing with heartbreak, or just having fun with one another, their lives are utterly relatable. No wonder America can't get enough. But what have Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, and the rest of the Kardashian clan got that we haven't got? Off-the-charts beauty, millions of dollars, and Kris Jenner--the superstar mom and manager who made them into the family we can't resist.

On Keeping Up with the Kardashians, we watch Kris do it all. She runs a household, manages her children's successful careers, produces four television shows featuring her larger-than-life family, and still finds time to tweet to her fans . How does she manage to maintain her composure, enviable elegance, and unflappable sense of humor? After raising six children of her own, in addition to being a stepmother to four and a grandmother, multitasking is Kris's way of life. But she would have never made it without her unwavering belief in God.

In this thoughtful, candid, and no-nonsense memoir, Kris Jenner is an open book about the good times and the rough patches. She shares the reality of living her hectic life in the celebrity spotlight, touching on topics that will resonate with women everywhere--love, loss, marriage, divorce, motherhood, and faith. Kris talks about her marriages to Olympic champion Bruce Jenner and Robert Kardashian, the late father of her four oldest children--and how it was Bruce who finally helped end the Kardashians' messy divorce so they could all move forward as a family. She writes with candor and vivid insider detail about her close friendships with Nicole Brown Simpson and O.J. Simpson, as well as Nicole's murder, its aftermath, and the infamous trial. She also puts her oftencontroversial parenting style under the microscope as she relates the details of her decision to make her charming family into an international brand with a blockbuster reality television franchise.

If you think your life is chaotic, try keeping up with Kris Jenner.

This is a light and fun read. Even after KUWTK for years, there was plenty of details in this book that I never knew, and in that aspect the book will be delightful and entertaining. Keep in mind this is a dated copy, so this will not delve in to Kim and Khloe's divorce, Scott's downward spiral, and Bruce's transition. Be prepared to find a surprising amount of pages on the O.J. trial. For those however who remember that time, it can prove to be a fascinating, and also contextualizing aspect and explanation on how the Kardashians launched themselves as the first family.

I did not expect a really well written book, and this did not disappoint. "It was a light bulb moment, but the lightbulb didn't turn on-not yet anyway" Kris Jenner. Just bad writing, and even the content was not that entertaining. Good thing about it was I read it in about a day.

If you thought you knew what Kris Jenner was all about, you better think again. This book tells about the heartbreak and the triumphs that have been spread throughout her life, an inside glimpse about what the O.J Simpson trial was really like, and how devastating it really was when the verdict was read, how her family got into the reality-show business, her life-long love for Robert Kardashian and how she found redemption through Bruce Jenner, and above all, how important family really is. She isn't who the world thinks she is, and neither are the Kardashian family as a whole. Pick up this book, and you will really get to know the heart of a person, not just who the cameras and the magazines portray.

Enjoyable read. Kris talks about everything from her life with Robert Kardashian to her friendship with Nicole and OJ Simpson to her current life with Bruce Jenner and the reality shows.

"Still, it haunts me that she wasn't able to tell me about the pictures- and that I wasn't there to allow her to tell me. One thing I learned from this horrendous experience is something I would tell anybody goin through something like this: act on your feelings and share your thoughts rather than hold back, even if it means crossing a privacy line. When you feel like something is really wrong, it's usually wrong. Follow your instincts; you might just change someone's life."
