      Even though I am a professed Dancing With The Stars addict, I picked this book up at the library as a joke. Then I found myself without a book to read as I was going to bed, so I started flipping through it and really enjoyed it. You think you know someone just becuase you see them week after week on TV, but you don't. It was so interesting to "hear" what goes on inside Cheryl's head, her fears and frustrations, her preception of her strengths and weaknesses, her stories about her celebrity part [...]

      Like others have said, the book was very repetitive and could have benefited from better structure. However, I still enjoyed learning more about Cheryl. She has been a pro that I was am less familiar with, and it was nice to hear more about her life. Her book is also a very quick read; I finished it in less than a day.

    • Linda says:

      Yes, I really did read it, and yes, I really am admitting it here. On an unexpectedly lovely fall day, I decided to shake off the office with a lunchtime walk and wound up at a nearby branch of the public library, where I saw this displayed on a "new books" shelf. I found the idea of someone as young as Cheryl Burke writing her "life story" to be more than a little ridiculous, but on the other hand, I am a total sucker for that damn show, so I said "what the hell" and grabbed the book.I do absol [...]

      So. I love CB and DWTS. Her book, however, left me feeling a little less enthusiastic about her though. She is very repetitive. That's VERY repetitive. The writing is not great. Other comments alluded to that, so I wasn't surprised by it really.And I'm happy for her that she is diversifying herself for longevity, but if I never here the word "branding" again it won't be too soon. I get it. You want to have a career that spans longer than DWTS. Most people just call that planning for your future. [...]

    • Kelly says:

      Dare I say that this book was a bit boring? I hate to be so critical, because Cheryl is a dancer, not a writer - but I have to be honest and say that it took me 2.5 months to finish it (and it's a short book!). I read half of it a couple of months ago and then set it down to read something else and never picked it up again until a couple of nights ago, just to get it over with. When I saw that that Cheryl had written a book, I thought it possibly had great potential; she's a fan-favorite of Danc [...]

      We are HUGE Dancing with the Stars fans, so I picked this up because I thought it would be a fun read and give some background info about the show. It did so much spray tanning! Makes me wonder what the rest of us could look like after a full day of tanning, hair, and make up every week. I could have probably read it in one sitting, but she wrote about so many of the dances that she did with this star or that, that I found myself you tubing each of those dances over again so that I could remembe [...]

    • Becky says:

      Mark and I love our "DWTS", so when Cheryl Burke's memoir turned up on a couple "best of" lists, I decided to read it. The good news is: she didn't have a ghost writer. The bad news is: she didn't have a ghost writer. The book is short, pretty fast-paced and has a positive vibe. Unfortunately, it isn't very well-written, and the phrase "it felt/was/looked awesome" is found on nearly every page. The stories about the show were interesting, although there was NO gossip or even a hint of snarkiness [...]

    • Terri Tinkel says:

      This is a book written by Cheryl Burke from Dancing With The Stars. I was interested in reading about her background and how she got into dancing and then was invited to dance on the TV show. She did talk a bit about some of the celebrity stars she has danced with on the program. She seems to have something nice to say about each and every one of them. I didn't think this book was unusually revealing but it is a good book for a young person who is interested in dancing and might want encourage t [...]

      I am a big fan of Dancing with the stars and I was looking for a kindle book to read on my long trip to Prague and I was able to find this book on the library website. I found myself very comfortable with her writing style and her behind the scenes view of the show was very enlightening. I wasn't a big fan of the dancing tips at the end of each chapter. They seemed like throw aways. I did feel that there was a sincerity in her writing that I found very refreshing. I thought that linking each par [...]

    • Amanda says:

      I read this book in two days. As I got further and further into the book, the more I decided that I absolutely love Cheryl Burke. This book chronicles her journey to the top. It was nice to see Cheryl as a normal person. She has overcome a lot of obstacles in her life and is still a positive role model. It was also interesting how Cheryl organized the book around dance styles. Each chapter starts with an introduction to the dance style and then she tells whatever part of her life story that fits [...]

    • Sydney Young says:

      Read this (via Audio,in the car,on the way to lessons at the dance studio where Emit did his training with Cheryl) because I'm practicing for the Paris Texas Dancing with the Stars. I couldn't put it down and was surprised at how much I like it. Inspirational, honest, informative, I not only got dance tips, I got to hear about a young woman's journey. If you are looking for a little inspiration, this is a good one.

    • Pam says:

      OK, I just couldn't resist this book since I am a big fan of Dancing. It was a light weight book that you can race through. Nothing learned except that during the dress rehearsal Tom Bergeron is even funnier and more outrageous than in the live broadcast. Cheryl has or had a lot of angst, but overcame most of her issues with help from her dancing partners and her mother, who knows how to market a product.

    • Brenda says:

      I saw this at the library and it is my official "fluff read" of the summer. As a former ballroom student and huge DWTS fan the book was too tempting to leave on the shelf.I think it would be a great book for a 15 yr old girl who is a dancer. But Cheryl is a little too young to have a life story and the perspective to truly write with any depth. But it was a fun, quick read. Sort of like reading People magazine if it were written by her instead of about her.

    • Gayle Hart says:

      An okay story, but way to much filler. Desperately needed an editor.Very repetitive, large font, and extra wide leading used to take up enough space to make it a book. It really felt like the publisher just wanted to capitalize on Ms Burke's moment of fame instead producing a meaningful story. With a good editor, this 272-page book could probably have been 100 pages and still communicated everything needed.

    • Lori says:

      Oh Cheryl, I still love you, but you should probably stick to dancing. I think they were trying to be cute and creative but it came off as a bad high school essay, complete with the urge to red pen all over it! There's just not enough there yet to be a memoir, maybe in a few years. Although the last chapter where she talked about her partners was pretty interesting. Gilles is just as awesome as I thought and Chad Ochocincom

    • Bella says:

      quick read and easy to finish in a day; found it interesting that cheryl has accomplished so much professionally (owns her own dance studios, franchising, and dancewear line, etc) when she is so young.her memoir is basic and meant inspirationally, drawing parallels from life to her dancing, not about overcoming abuse or anything else specifically though she does touch on it briefly.

    • Craig says:

      Got to meet her at the LA Times Festival of Books at USC last weekend. Kind of interesting memoir of her experiences in dance, but nothing is explored in much detail and at times it reads more like a press release. The book gave me an appreciation for what it takes to be a successful dancer. When I get my invite to be on "Dancing With the Stars", I hope Cheryl is my partner.

    • SouthWestZippy says:

      Cheryl Burke gives a very open and honest look at her dancing career, parts of her childhood and adult life. It is not a complete Autobiography but it does give enough to understand why she is the person she is today. Her love of dancing shines through. I love that with each chapter she names it after a dance style. Very good book.

    • Christina says:

      Great autobiography. I love Cheryl Burke just from seeing her on the Dancing with the Stars. After reading her book I love her even more. This book give you an in depth look at Cheryl. Where she has been and what direction she is moving in. There are even chapters about what her Dancing with the Stars partners have taught her. Amazing book about an amazing person!

    • Lily OnTheLam says:

      I have no idea why I read this book since I have never watched "Dancing with the Stars"- but I was looking for some mindless beach reading. I found Cheryl's book to be interesting and somewhat inspirational.

    • Lynn Lovegreen says:

      Engaging mix of advice, autobiography, dance tips, and sneak peeks at the making of Dancing with the Stars! Cheryl inspires us with her positive attitude and warm heart, as she reveals herself as a survivor of child molestation and some hard knocks we all deal with.

    • Lil Old Bookworm says:

      Nice memoir. I liked how Cheryl categorized different parts of her life under different dance styles. As a fan of DWTS, I also enjoyed the behind the scenes tidbits, and the different relationships she had with her celebrity dancers.

    • Denise Jo says:

      I really like her on Dancing with the Stars, and so I was interested in reading about her. I enjoyed reading about her life, her family, and her love of dancing. It just wasn't written very well. Sorry Cheryl.

    • Kelli says:

      After reading this I found it so difficult to think about 'rating' someone's memoir. I liked reading about her journey, struggles and all. The behind the scenes of the show were interesting too. She's is brave and strong and smart.

    • Videoclimber(AKA)MTsLilSis says:

      I must admit I only wanted to read this book because I had heard so much about her being molested as a child. It was a VERY tiny part of the book. I expected to read more about her life. This book is strictly for dancing fans only.

    • Meg says:

      If you are a Dancing With Stars fan you will enjoy this book. Cheryl's book is about being positive, setting a goal and working for it, and learning from your experiences. Cheryl talks about her partner on Dancing and how they have impacted her life and her decisions about her life.

    • Delaney says:

      I enjoyed how she went into depth about the description of the dances and also about her own personal experience on and off the dance floor. I kinda want to buy it now! (since I checked it out from the library)

    • Kim says:

      It was a good fast read. Cheryl has lived through some horrible times and has taken years to come into her own. She is on the right path and it will be fun to see how she grows from here.

    • karen says:

      I like Cherl's work ethic and that she is a down to earth person who has had to battle what people say. She does great on Dancing With The Stars

    • Heidi says:

      I love Cheryl on "Dancing With The Stars" so was excited to read her book. It was an ok book, but just sort of gave some highlights of her life. Nothing very exciting.
