Description

Investigator and #1 New York Times bestselling author Ian Halperin pulls back the curtain on America’s notorious Kardashian family’s seemingly meteoric rise to fame, and the dark secrets they’ve struggled to hide in Kardashian Dynasty, now in paperback.

The Kardashians and Jenners have taken the world by storm, collectively rising to superfame after making their reality show debut on E! with Keeping Up with the Kardashians in 2007. Since then, their family life has remained a constant circus of tabloid headlines, red carpet appearances, branding deals, reality shows and their spinoffs, and a slew of media coverage.

And yet, amidst their mega success, the Kardashians have faced a firestorm of negative publicity over the years: particularly over Kris Jenner’s role in the family. As matriarch and momager of the Kardashian clan, Kris has been accused of exploiting her children for fame and money and playing the media like a deck of cards.

Based on extensive research, Ian Halperin delivers the salacious details behind the Kardashians’ rise to fame. With revelations exposing the family’s foundation as unstable at best and scandalous at worst, Halperin scrutinizes their self-made multi-million dollar brand and provides an unparalleled glimpse into the events and scandals that have propelled the Kardashians to worldwide celebrity, for better or worse.

    There is nothing new in this book. It's the same stories that have been in the media for the past few years. Total waste of time & money

    I have to say that it's a guilty pleasure of mine to watch and follow the Kardashians. It's very uncharacteristic of me, I'm not a vapid or spoiled person but something about them is so intriguing. This book was great. I finished it within a couple days. I found out a lot of things that I didn't know and it kind of makes me believe that there's some sort of conspiracy as to how the family rose to fame so quickly. Even though I like them, I fully believe that they manipulate their lives specifically for fame and fortune. This book made me see them in a different light for sure.

    Nothing new. Found some things to be depicted incorrectly, such as stating Kim was pregnant with North when she married Kanye. Check your facts. Too many pages were basically transcripts from an episode of KUWTK.

    This was a total waste of my time and money. No new information and pure speculation.

    Don't bother reading this book. All Ian did was watch all the Keeping with the Kardashians episodes and put all the episodes for us to read in this book. He doesn't share anything new, might as well just read the tabloid magazine and stick to TMZ. This book was a disappointment and a waste of money

    I loved this book I really haven't paid much attention to all the Kardashian chaos so it was interesting to see where and how it all started. I found the facts backed up by several sources and it was very informative. It obviously took a lot of investigation and work to research the facts and lay them out in such a fashion to be readable . It seems Americas most entertaining family has won a new fan in me thanks to the author. I will be watching the future developments both from the K clan and the author. Well done. G
