Waterstones Says

Global megastar Britney Spears reveals all in her candid and heartfelt memoir, covering her incredible, tumultuous career, her controversial conservatorship experience and more.

Shortlisted for the British Book Awards Non-Fiction Narrative Book of the Year 2024

The Woman in Me is a brave and astonishingly moving story about freedom, fame, motherhood, survival, faith, and hope.

In June 2021, the whole world was listening as Britney Spears spoke in open court. The impact of sharing her voice-her truth-was undeniable, and it changed the course of her life and the lives of countless others. The Woman in Me reveals for the first time her incredible journey-and the strength at the core of one of the greatest performers in pop music history.

Written with remarkable candor and humor, Spears's groundbreaking book illuminates the enduring power of music and love-and the importance of a woman telling her own story, on her own terms, at last.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'It’s nearly impossible to come out of it without empathy for and real outrage on behalf of Spears, whose admitted bitterness over the dire circumstances of the last decade-plus of her life – she no longer speaks to her family, and says she has no immediate plans to return to recording – is tempered by an enduring, insistent optimism'  - New York Times

'The Woman in Me tells a focused story that makes inarguable the ties between patriarchy and exploitation, and deserves to be read as a cautionary tale and an indictment, not a grab-bag of tabloid revelations. After all Spears has lost, the sharpness of her perspective is a miracle … May her truth pose a legitimate threat to the system that exploited her.' - Guardian

'A cautionary tale about fame and the corrupting influence of money. And, just maybe, a glimmer of hope for a woman whose adult life has been dictated by others.'   - BBC News

'Britney Spears holds nothing back in her short, bittersweet and extremely powerful memoir. Ultimately, The Woman in Me is a story not about music so much as about the way that women are still routinely mistreated in the music business. That it hasn’t turned into a complete tragedy is a testament to Spears’s essential fortitude of spirit – something that burns off these pages.' - Telegraph

'Anyone who has followed Spears over the years – and, due to the sheer force of her cultural ubiquity, that’s probably all of us – will want the very best for her. There is nothing tidy about trauma and recovery, and I hope The Woman in Me has been cathartic for her. It’s certainly not the end of her pain, but it’d be nice if it’s the beginning of a new chapter.' - Independent

'There are anecdotes and namedrops, sure, and the writing is casual, conversational as though she’s spilling it all in a classic Britney Instagram caption, but to see it as simply a famous person’s memoir is underselling it: this is a text that dissects the notion of the “mad woman”, that unpicks the nature of celebrity and highlights some huge failings in the American legal system. The power of this book is the fact that it exists at all.' - i

'Spears’s prose contains more compassion and perspective than bitterness or self-pity.' - The Times

'A cautionary tale about coercion, misogyny, control, exploitation, and the insidious grip of the patriarchy… Spears shares this story, which will undoubtedly be dissected and recounted elsewhere, with astonishing clarity.' - Dazed

‘one of pop’s great cautionary tales. . . erases the people-pleasing Mouseketeer to express rage against the music industry, celebrity culture and her family. Whether it’s read as a document of Noughties misogynist pop culture. . . it’s a remarkably intimate testimony from somebody still coming back from the edge' - The Times, Books of the Year

‘one of the biggest book deals ever…a genuine page-turner’ - Financial Times

'With quietly vengeful fury, the pop star recounts how she was exploited by not just her industry but her own family. The most riveting music book of the year by far' - Telegraph, Best Books of 2023

“Her voice, finally!”

To sum this up in a nutshell would be a direct insult to Britney and the battles she has fought to survive. Even if you are not a fan of hers (as I am), you should give her book the time it deserves so that you can... More

“Stunning… finally she has her voice!”

I’ve been eagerly anticipating this book long before it was announced. In her 2008 documentary, when asked what she has to say to people who say she hasn’t said enough, Britney said “I’ll have a book one day… a good... More
