    1. This book was a waste of my time It was billed as a tell-all expose of what went on behind the scenes of sunrise. In reality, it was Adam boland self-promoting himself and what a superstar he thought he was. Come on. Never mind the fact that he completely brushed over what could have been a very important topic to the story, and provided much needed publicity for sufferers of bipolar disorder. This book is a disgrace. Save your money and by a new idea or woman's day mag. It's the same trashy con [...]

    2. I heard a lot of hype around this book before and just after it was realised. Not a lot of juicy bits of information until the celeb chapter. Another reader commented that people were introduced in the book, but then never really heard about again, which could be a little misleading at times. Good to read about some of the behind the scenes stories such as Reach out to Asia and the Beaconsfield mine disaster. I would have liked to know more about Adam as a person, but a lot of story telling abou [...]

    3. There can be no doubt the media industry and its backrooms are cutthroat, competitive and a maelstrom of egos. Having read Gerald Stone’s Who Killed Channel Nine? Gerald Stone and biographies of Rupert Murdoch, James Packer and Alan Jones, I find the industry fascinating, if deeply flawed. It is a cultural powerhouse, where the decisions made affect millions upon millions of us from the smallest decisions like the laundry detergent, to bigger decisions such as whether to leave our partners, tr [...]

    4. A good and honest insight into the workings of Australian breakfast TV. I watched the Adam Boland story on ABC's Australian Story so I was keen to read his take on his job and the impact this had on his bipolar/depression state of mind. I thought it was quite an honest biography where mistakes were openly acknowledged.

    5. Good read although would have been better if it focused more on his mental problem then him working nearly 24 hours 7 days a week
