Just like Steven's prior book (/Red Carpet Diaries/), this book is very personal and told in a conversational, honest, self-aware style that is an easy read....

Despite the subject matter, /Glamour, Interrupted/, like its predecessor, is also extremely witty and funny. I rarely laugh out loud at even the most humorous books, comics, or comedians, but /G, I/ generated nine laugh-out-loud guffaws in my reading today.

It's also inspirational... health, education, and the arts are already my 3 causes

He sure drops alot of designer names I've never heard of. Definately a "glamour girl". THe book IS well-written and Steven is humorous. I enjoyed it.

I like Cojo a lot. His personality on air is fun and his takes on fashion are very interesting. I knew in the back of my mind that he had serious medical issues but wasnt sure what until I read this book. He has had two kidney transplants (body rejected the first) and has gone through a tremendous amount. He tells his story honestly and with his own sense of bizarre humor and attitude.

Recommends it for: Everyone!
Wow! For someone who is missing a kidney, he sure has a lot of heart! Cojo rocks! The book is well written, witty, and shockingly poignant. For someone who makes a living dishing with celebrities on the the red carpet, he has an incredible amount of depth. A must read for anyone trying to overcome adversity in their life.

I have a soft spot for Cojo and had wondered what happened to him so I read it to find out. He has been through alot but looks at it all lightly, with his trademark humor. Only at the end does he confess to finding some depth in himself.

Cojo is adorable, and his struggles with kidney disney and depression were surprising, and mind-opening. I'm not familiar enough with Cojo or Hollywood, to be sure when he was being hyperbolic or literal, and I found that confusing.

what crap. Read it FAST so maybe I missed something but I doubt it. Everything here was on Oprah - glad I didn't buy the damn thing, but I love his attitude.

Good book with a good sense of humor when humor was needed during a difficult time. Liked it better than I thought I would.

A very poignant memoir of a patient waiting for a kidney transplant, with feelings and humor. A real-life picture.
