Interesting, moving and engrossing @}->---

Steven has written another great book. I have watched him on ET and Today and find him highly amusing, entertaining and seemingly like a fun person. I bought this book because I feel like I 'know' him and was shocked when I learnt several years back how sick he was. He wrote this book very well and mingles humour and painful recollections of his ordeal. I found it interesting how he percieved that his sickness could be the end of his Hollywood career. Only in Hollywood right? It's not a totally depressing book - in fact it's very heartwarming. I really enjoyed it and think that it's good for anyone who watches Cojo on the red carpets or on ET, or for someone who knows someone going through this very trying time. A well written book that was enjoyable and moving.

An Inspirational, Funny, & Powerful Read

When I saw Cojo discuss his book on Larry King, I ran out for my copy. You see, my close friend had a kidney transplant recently. I had hoped that this book might shed light on what was a difficult time in her life, her family's life, my life - and it did. I couldn't put it down. It's an amazing journey of a man who went from red carpets and celebrity banter to an emotional roller-coaster ride of doctors and kidney tranplants. Cojo uses humor and wit to deal with a traumatic time, and in the process learns what's truly important: family, friends, and self-acceptance. If you want to be inspired - even enlightened - I highly recommend it.

Cojo Rocks! (And so does "Glamour Interrupted.")

Love Cojo! LOVE HIM! Was obsessed with Cojo way before this book ever existed and love him even more now! Knew he had the glamour part down, but now I learn he's got the substance too??? Talk about the whole package! Truth be told, we all sweat the small stuff way too often. His book serves as a wake up call reminding us of what really matters. And YES Sista, there is more to life than Manolo's. In "Glamour Interrupted," Cojo inspires us all "to put on our big girl panties." Seriously, what I wouldn't give for a lunch at The Ivy with this man...

I love this book!!!!

My husband has PKD and his mother is preparing for a kidney transplant. I knew who Cojo was but had no idea about his ordeal until reading about his book in last week Peoples magazine. I went to the bookstore on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and finally found it on the shelf Thursday. I loved this book! Cojo is funny, sweet, brave and bit* & y all at the same time. The truth about PKD is still ugly but reading this book made it a little less terrifying. I am now a Cojo fan.


I just finished reading "Glamour, Interrupted" and I must say... I loved it! Being a longtime Cojo fan, I didn't know what to expect. After all, for someone who makes his living hobnobbing with celebrities on the red carpet, I assumed the book would focus more on the "Glamour" and less on the "Interrupted." But I was pleasantly surprised. I actually caught a glimpse of the man behind the facade. And I experienced the gamut of emotions. I laughed. I cried. And laughed some more. The best way to put it is this-- Cojo may be lacking a kidney, but he has plenty of heart! I recommend this book to anyone who's ever faced an adversity they didn't think they could overcome. It's truly inspirational.
