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.

Wake up people this is the truth on those idiots!
Finally someone did the investigation on this Kardashian family. This family bothers me because they prey on our teenagers while parents are busy working. They promoted this show as a family show. Mental illness ! The kardashians = mental illness !
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.
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
