I ordered a second hand copy of this book (because the new copy wasn't available then), and I expected the book to have tattered edges and torn pages... But boy was I surprised to open the package and see a beautiful, probably brand new copy of the book! The book is filled with lots of pictures of the lads, from the X Factor and before that... Seriously, the book is filled with pictures, there are probably more pictures than information (not that I'm complaining!)... The book begins with a foreword by Simon Cowell, then the boys give you a brief story of there lives... The book then traces the 10 weeks One Direction spent on the X-Factor, including some stuff that happened when they weren't performing... This book is a must have whether you are a die hard directioner or a new 1D fan!
