    Yes, I bought the paperback version. It has all the photos inside, but the paperback version is so much cuter. The only difference is the back of the book, it has three really cute photos of Susan instead of the photo from one of her performances. I like the paperback version better, it is so much prettier.

    Ah, thank you. Now I know it will be a super gift. Did not want one word left out from the original though. Thanks!

    LOL...isn't it just the greatest fun to surprise folks with a Susagift? I still carry some of Susan's CD's in an insulated bag in my car...and just a couple of weeks ago, as I'm prone to do, something triggered me when I was in a beauty supply shop buying hairspray, and I mentioned Susan's music. The clerk's mouth dropped open in joyful surprise, as she exclaimed, "Oh...do you love her, too? SO DO I! I think she has the most angelic voice!", and she and I continued discussing our enjoyment of Susan's music. She had purchased IDAD, and loves it, but didn't realize Susan had produced THE GIFT. So, I took my purchase to the car, and returned to present her with a MEGA SURPRISE LOVE GIFT FOR HER...SUSAN'S "THE GIFT", COMPLETE WITH A STICKY BOW ON THE FRONT.

    I'm glad to hear about these paperback copies of Susan's book. I've given several of the hardbound copies as special birthday gifts to close friends, and they love them.


    But, my most treasured SUSAN BOOK of all, is one a couple of dear Susafriends surprised me with...autographed by Susan herself at her first book signing. I WON'T DISCLOSE THEIR NAMES, BUT THEY'LL NEVER KNOW HOW MUCH JOY THAT PRECIOUS AUTOGRAPHED COPY MEANS TO ME!

    CBs thread "Flowers for Algernon" has been a great read and has me looking deeper at the behaviour of those who "bash." On Amazon, the Customer Discussions can be heartwarming or pathetic. One sad soul has set up his profile stating his "mission in life" is to "expose" Susan Boyle as a non-talent. He will go to Amazon and buy one of each of her book or cds and then give them a "one star" review (lowest you can go.) Doesn't phase him that he is pretty much alone, although it is likely he has more than one IP and a few trolls drop in to join him and often get banned for inappropriate comments. An example from Susan's book:

    There were 80 reviews on Susan's Autobiography.
    66 5 star
    9 4 star
    1 3 star
    2 2 star
    2 1 star

    Same goes for her cds, although for IDAD there are 1,648 reviews (whew) with 1,258 5 star. Still he persists and gains some sick pride in the bashing. It's all he has I guess.

    Isn't it a shame that the sad soul has no accomplishments that would put him on Amazon so we could rate him.

    Can you still buy signed copies of her book at Waterstones?

    That's what's so sad. Every day customers vote his comments off the thread (hidden as Not Helpful) and his reviews are at the bottom and also voted on as not helpful. But he knows he has a presence there that gets attention. So most totally ignore his comments. Best way.
