Jason Priestley: A Memoir is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.

Jason Priestley, star of the iconic hit television seriesBeverly Hills, 90210and one of the biggest teen idols of the 1990s, chronicles the highs and lows of his life and career in this charming and honest memoir.

The hit Fox showBeverly Hills, 90210became a cultural touchstone of the 1990s and propelled its young cast to mega-stardom, including Jason Priestley, who played honorable Midwestern transplant Brandon Walsh. Yet despite more than twenty years in and out of the limelight, Priestley has carefully maintained his privacy. In this compelling memoir, the actor, director, and race-car aficionado invites us into his private world for the first time.

With humor, sincerity, and charm, Priestley offers little-known details about his life and stories of his nine years in America''s most famous zip code. He talks candidly about celebrity, marriage, fatherhood, and his passion for car racing. He does not shy away from the devastating lows-his brief jail sentence for drunk driving and the crash at the Kentucky Speedway that nearly took his life. Priestley shares his innermost thoughts about life as a ''90s icon, and goes beyond the Brandon Walsh squeaky-clean image, revealing the tumultuous events that have shaped him, and where he finds his greatest happiness today.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth your time. I like this guy! I liked Brandon from the start and over the years I've seen Jason here and there most recently in "Call Me Fritz" so I was curious about what was going on in this young mans life behind the camera. I was entertained and not the least bit surprised that the amazing talent we see on screen is just as smart and talented in real life. What a beautiful testament to a life well lived!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Read I really enjoyed this memoir. I am fan of Jason Priestly. I couldn't put his book down, I enjoyed reading about his life and his work experience. If you are a fan of Jason, not just a fan of 90210 then you will really enjoy this memoir.
