Kim Kardashian West is one of the most divisive figures of the 21st century. Here she presents us with a book comprised entirely of selfies. It's Madonna's Sex for my generation.

Selfish chronicles the life of Kim from 2006 up to her marriage to Kanye West in 2014. Many of the selfies come along with captions. It's interesting reading. We find out that Kim has quite the good memory. She states that she can remember exactly who did her hair and make-up by just looking at a photo. She also knows e

The author, Kim Kardashian is celebrated for a tape of her having sex with some scuzz who leaked it (great choice in boyfriends). Also for her huge round plastic bottom and equally huge round and plastic breasts. "Plastic" in this context used to mean fake, cheap, not the real deal, now it seems to mean that she is an 'authentic' American icon.

Essentially, if the woman, her mother and her sisters hadn't all decided to use her late father's bequest to employ PR companies to spin her celebrity all

You know, I can’t fault a person for wanting to cash in on their fucking eternal fifteen minutes of fame, but a selfie book????

Now that’s not to say I don’t recognize the power of the selfie. Hell, even the President likes to whip out his selfie stick errrry once in awhile . .

So this book is basically just a bunch of pictures of Kim Kardashian.

Apparently she is on reality tv or something? I don't really know.

How can you not know this?!?!?!?!

From Wikipedia:

In Greek mythology, Narcissus (/nɑrˈsɪsəs/; Greek: Νάρκισσος, Narkissos) was a Hunter from Thespiae in Boeotia who was known for his beauty. He was the son of the river god Cephissus and nymph Liriope. He was proud, in that he disdained those who loved him. Nemesis noticed this behavior and attracted Narcissus to a pool, where he saw his own reflection in the water and fell in love with it, not realizing it was merely an image. Unable to leave the beauty of his reflection, Narcis

[P]: Sure.
GR: And how do you justify that?
[P]: I dunno. I’m edgy?
GR: You haven’t read it have you?
[P]: There are words in it?
GR: Oh, so this is going to be one of those reviews…

GR: You’re a dick; you do know that, right?

I read this. This is not a 1-star review because I hate the idea. It's a 1-star review because I looked at every page in this book and read every word.

If you happen to pick this up in the store, the section of black pages towards the middle has the nudes. Let me just save everyone some time right there. I don't want to sound like a piggish asshole or anything. But if you're looking to skip the preamble, there you go.

Second piece of advice, I don't think this is meant to be read in one sitting. I

3.22, 258 ratings. I don't know what number scares me more.

Wow. A book of selfies. Oh my, how far we have come.
So. My birthday is next month, the 27th. And I really need a paperweight.
Just saying.

P.S. I'll leave the wrapper to preserve such a classy book cover.

Imagine being boring enough to criticise Kim for putting this out!!!!!! LMAO!!!!!!!

Who needs a photo of a nice tree? I bet there are thousands. No one cares. I like the way I look and I want to take pictures of myself. When I have children and they want to see pictures of me at this age they'll know what I was really like. It's a good way to chart your progression through life and preserve precious memories.

Kim is a beautiful woman who takes beautiful selfies. She's so successful; a model, an en

If someone would lend me this "book" I would probably ... Watch it? Don't think there will be many words in it :). I would do it out of pure curiosity. But I would never pay for it though :-S.
I'm sure that the hardcore fans of Kardashians are extatic about the news. I just hope that they will get inspired (?) to pick up a real book with words in it after "reading" this one.

Exactly what I expected and was not disappointed. I have immense respect for someone who can take a huge betrayal such as the leaking of a sex tape (made within what was supposed to be a trusting relationship) and turn it into an $85 million personal empire. Kudos to you, Kim Kardashian.

The majority of reviews for Kim Kardashian's 'Selfish' are either mentioning it isn't 'an actual book', 'she just has too much time on her hands', or expressing how Kim totally nailed it by calling the book Selfish.
To me that's besides the point.
Kim Kardashian grows more confident and seems more lively year after year. This book exists just the same way you take a picture of yourself and might post it to facebook.

There is no adequate amount of words to express my disgust for this book. Granted, Kim K is being honest, by calling this book "selfish", so you know exactly what you're getting. She can't be accused of a bait and switch here, as the contents of the books are clear.

That aside, this book truly is selfish. A collection of selfies, from the woman who is famous for nothing worthwhile. I can enjoy interesting coffeetable books of photography, but the subjects have to be interesting - old/abandoned ca

So I'm a late bloomer and have only just started watching all the Kardashian shows (I even had to map out the chronological order so I could flip between seasons of all the different series and watch them in order haha). Honestly, if I had check this book out a few years ago, I don't know what I would have made of it. But something in me has shifted a lot lately as I've been struggling with a huge amount of self-confidence issues in appearance and weight. And I now have this entirely new appreci ...more

“Like Kim Kardashian: Hollywood , her $200 million-earning mobile game, Selfish is fascinating because it’s so frivolous. As a baby-faced 2006 Kim gradually morphs into the heavily contoured, bionically proportioned Kim of today, you see the endless daily grind of the celebrity machine. “I was in Santa Barbara horseback riding with Khloé.” “I was in Africa in a diamond mine.” When Kim’s the subject of every picture, what’s the difference? The thing is, if you look at enough of anyone’s selfies, ...more

I'm not a big Kim K fan but I'm just going to buy the book & look at how much time she had in her hands with all the selfies she's taken. It's a pointless book, but then again she's not smart enough or has a great imagination to write a killer book :) lol
