Quotes & Awards

  • “In the process of revealing the human being behind the artist, Ricky Martin offers us a testimony of exemplary honesty and greatness of soul.”

    Paulo Coelho

  • “Ricky Martin has written an extraordinary memoir, the story of a tortured soul who healed himself by returning to the state of innocence and authenticity. His story will speak to you because it is, in a sense, the story of humanity—of the sacred and the profane, of forbidden lust and unconditional love. It takes courage to be so ruthlessly honest and transparent, but it is only this kind of courage and this kind of love that can heal the world. Bravo!”

    Deepak Chopra, MD, New York Times bestselling author

    " Sweet book by one of my favorite recording artists. He writes the way he interviews... quiet and thoughtful. I'm not sure I know the real Ricky Martin any better after reading it. "

    " Ricky is darling. I'm so glad I saw him on Oprah as I could "hear" his voice and cadence while reading his book. He is so passionate about the world and injustice and I think the book will be an inspiration to those who need it. "

    " I'm still reading the book
    love it so far, it's literally like sitting with him at a coffeeshop and having a nice conversation, he opens up and tells you his life story "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lila | 2/24/2011

    " A little on the bland side. No juicy details that's for sure. The book centered around his homosexuality and the journey to openly admitting it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt | 2/24/2011

    " Martin's autobiography was remarkably honest. Although at times the writing was a bit cliched and tending toward preachiness, his story of coming to terms with himself spiritually, emotionally, and sexually was insightful and inspiring. Quite enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krystal | 2/21/2011

    " Very interesting. I could hear Ricky telling me the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paige | 2/4/2011

    " Although not the most compelling writer, Ricky Martin is a real philanthropist and overall "nice guy." I enjoyed the memoirs, and appreciated the fact that while he was very forthcoming with his own opinions about lifestyle, etc., he made it a point not to be judgmental or preachy. "
