"My story is something I like to share with others, to show people that with enough belief in yourself and what you can accomplish, anything is possible."—Justin Bieber

From Tel Aviv to Tokyo, over the past few years I've traveled around the world and back again. It's been amazing, but it's also hard to believe that not so long ago I was singing on the streets of Stratford,

And for all haters out there, yes this book is amazing.
Justin Biebers story is amazing.
You can't say he's not talented because I he wasn't he wouldn't be where he is right now.
Justin has worked so hard to get here and he's worth it.
This is where he's supposed to be.
I understand why some of you might not want to read his book but you should at least give it a try.
You should also read Justin's first book First Step To Forever: My Story its really inspirational.
I really think everyone should

Justin is not only an inspiration to me and others but he is so much more, and I was excited when he announced this book. I was going though a really rough time when his first, First Step 2 Forever (which I definitely recommend), came out and whenever I felt like breaking down I would just pull it out and read a piece. It literally kept me from going insane during that time. Anyway, because of that I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. I read it in two hours, not once putting it down. It ...more

...and this is why I look up to Justin and why he's my favorite. Other people may say, you only like him for his looks, he's just another product!, he's so ovverated!. Well, excuse me if I buy his albums and songs just to listen to his face.



Anyway, I didn't expect Justin to write another book after First Step 2 Forever and after

I wrote this when I reviewed Justin's first book and I feel the need to point this out again (because everything I'm going to write from this point on will sound as if I am a hater), but I really like this little dude. He was an adorable kid, now he's a handsome young man and a charismatic performer who's songs I enjoy more often than not. Anyway, I read both of his books and saw his documentary, so cut me some slack, huh?
Now, let's get down to it. First of all, the book should have been properl

I am a huge fan of Justin Bieber and i love him with all my heart. This autobiography made me realize how much he loves to be a celebrity, but also needs time to be a normal 18 year old. In this book, he really opened up about his personal life and told you what tour life is really about. I love Justin Bieber and i will forever be a belieber.

Why, world, oh why?



I just stumbled with more Justin Bieber books. WASN'T ENOUGH WITH THE FIRST? How more money do you pretend to gain? Oh my god, I'm literally about to break something. This is too much I just can't take it. BIEBER RELATED TO SEVERAL BOOKS.



While thousands of new and probably amazing authors out there wait to be published and get their stories to be known, this comes out. I'm sure the cultural value of this must be so high that there are no words to discribe it, right?

Okay, I am a complete Belieber! I loved this autobiography, I think it's amazing how a young boy who had no thoughts of becoming a popstar got this far.
I LOVE BIEBER WITH ALL MY HEART.

I LOVE YOU BIEBER ♥♥♥♥♥

I decided to read this book because I am a big fan of Justin Bieber and I really enjoy his autobiographies. I think it's good to get in his mind set and read about his crazy life and what he is thinking going through his career. This book fits on the bingo board in 'A diary, autobiography or biography'. I really enjoy reading biographies because I like reading about celebrities and what they are feeling going through their full on careers and everyday life. It's hard to pick a favourite quote be ...more

This is my review of the 100% Official Justin Bieber: Just Getting Started biography and boy did boy did he get it started!! This is another smash hit, after his best-selling biography- First Step 2 Forever: My Story.

If you know me, you know I don’t love anything more than Justin Bieber. I was THE first Belieber. I feel like, as someone who has contributed lots of money to his ticket sales, I am highly qualified to review this book.

I basically already knew everything in this book so I was really

The book JUST GETTING STARTED written by Justin Bieber, is about Justin's life story. This book is an autobiography and really expresses how Justin feels being in the music business. The music business is hard and being so popular, just like Justin is very hard. One of the hardest struggles for Justin is the paparazzi. The paparazzi don't care about trampling Justin or any one in his crew. All they want is the pictures of Justin to make up some story about him to get money. Justin explains in th ...more

This book reminded me of why I love Justin so much, why I am so proud of him and why he is my idol. I've been by his side since day 1 and it's crazy to see how much his career has grown and how much he has grown as a person. I truly believe that this book can convert haters into beliebers even if I don't know how anyone can hate this kid in the first place. He has such a big heart and is so dedicated. He works so hard to be the best he can be and to make his fans happy. I love how he is so thank ...more

Have you ever thought about how it would be like to be famous? This book is the best book that I ever read! It has an inside story about what Justin Bieber’s life is about. It also has all the true facts because Justin Bieber wrote it himself. Most of the time it is about what happened in his life during the “My World” tour and what it was like to be on the road for most of the time. It also has things about how he is just getting started with his fame, that’s why the book is called Just Gettin

This book was. So good! It really touched my heartache has made a difference on me.

It's a phrase that gets thrown around a lot, but nobody deserves to say it more than Justin Bieber: Fuck the haters. A couple years ago I was charmed by his first book, First Step 2 Forever, but I read it more out of curiosity than anything else. Back then he didn't really have an audience beyond pre-teen girls and hadn't really made an effort to appeal to anyone else. As he acknowledges here, he wasn't really in control of his sound or living up to his potential until Believe, probably a pop ma ...more

This book “Just Getting Started” was a autobiography by Justin Bieber. Justin Bieber was born on March 1st, 1995 on a Tuesday. When he was growing up his mom, Pattie Mallete, and his dad Jeremy Bieber had them whenever they were teens. Justin’s dad and mom got a divorce, which lead to Pattie being a single mom. As Justin grew up, he was musically talented he got a drum set for his birthday and started drumming all the way up to age 12. He had also never had a music lesson in his life, he taught ...more

The book didn't really say who the author was just the Harper Collins Company. The book is mostly about his life and how he stared. I enjoyed this book because of the way he treats his crew, the way he gives to charities, and how hard he has work to accomplish his dream. I think that girls are going to be the big sale of this book because guys are not into the things that girls are into. This book is the second book that Justin has and I haven’t read the first one. I enjoy books about people’s l ...more

I just love reading about Justin's life. It really interests me of what hes been doing as an artist. I think he's done so much for his fans, and Im just so blessed to be his number one fan. He's just that amazing.

Seeing him perform is probably one of the best feelings ever, he really knows how to connect with you when he sings. I cant tell you how sick I am with all these haters hating him. It really makes me mad. Why? cause everytime I hear someone say '' Justin Bieber sucks.. he has no talent'

I bought this book around 3 PM today, started reading it at 5 PM today, finished the book at 10 PM today. The first page of the book got me hooked. I love him not only as a musician, but much more than that, I can't actually write it down here. I got the last book on the store, which I am VERY glad. I loved every word from the book, I love him. If you are not the biggest fan of him, meaning you hate/dislike without a reason/stupid reasons, I recommend you to read this because this book is AMAZI

“When we got to the marina we saw this beautiful boat named Tara waiting for us. Fredo, Carin, Ryan, Dan, Kenny, Allison, my mom, and me were all together to enjoy that extraordinary day. As the boat pulled away from the city, its skyline vanished into the horizon. The captain took us to this area where we sailed through caves and lush hilly landscapes. All of a sudden, the captain pushed the throttle all the way down and we started bombing across the water like we were in a James Bond movie. Everyone's hair was blowing all over the place, especially the girls'. Of course, mine was perfect (ha,ha), but theirs ended up looking like the worst case of bed head I've seen! It was so funny.” 19 likes
