Geri Halliwell had grown up telling herself "if only". If only she were taller. If only she were thinner. If only she were more talented. By learning never to give up, never to accept the status quo, Geri turned a life of urban poverty, ill health, and broken promises into one of wealth, celebrity, and social activism. An inspirational book from a remarkable young woman who took a step back to gainperspective and to devote herself to the causes for which she feels strongly, "If Only" is more than a real-life Cinderella story

by. Halliwell, Geri, 1972-. Books for People with Print Disabilities. Internet Archive Books. Uploaded by sf-loadersive. org on August 25, 2010. If only she could get that one lucky break - that one chance - she'd prove to all the doubters that she could make it, and make it big. Often broke and desperately lonely, her life became an endless round of failed auditions and dead-end jobs

She dreamed of becoming a pop star. She fought her way through personal obstacles to emerge--against overwhelming odds--as an international pop sensation: Ginger Spice of the supergroup the Spice Girls. Then, at the height of her fame, Geri Halliwell walked away from it all.If Only is the inspiring story of Halliwell's roller-coaster journey from insecure teenager to nineties' pop superstar. With wry humor and rare candor, she reveals the hunger for love and acceptance that propelled her from her working-class beginnings to fame beyond her wildest dreams. She shares candid thoughts about her battle with bulimia...her unforgettable meeting with Prince Charles...her ongoing quest for spiritual fulfillment...the real reason she left the Spice Girls. And she takes us inside the mind and heart of the outrageously dressed performer whose public persona shouted "Girl Power!" yet who constantly strove to discover who she really was. When she left the Spice Girls in 1998--with a string of number one hits behind her--she was ready to stop being Ginger Spice and start becoming Geri Halliwell. Today, at twenty-seven, she has already embarked on a new journey--a platinum solo album, three number one singles, and the inspirational role of Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations--rushing toward a future filled with success, fulfillment, and, hopefully, no regrets.

I am so glad that I didn't listen to the negative reviews of this book and decided to read it, because it is truly amazing! I've often been unhappy with my life because I never really achieved all that I wanted to and its still a nagging pain to this day; but this woman's story has really been an eye-opener because she seems to to speak to ALL women regardless of stature. I have never been a Spice Girls fan, but I sort of took an interest in Victoria Beckham so I decided to read the biographies. And I must admit that I picked this one up for rather petty reasons because I felt that Victoria's was leaving a lot out, so I wanted another point of view.
Well, the joke ended up on me because I enjoyed this book tremendously and I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in Geri Halliwell. The things she's been through really gave me a sense of comfort not for her misfortune, but the fact that if it can happen to her it can happen to anyone. This poor woman actually sounds so miserable that I found myself feeling really bad for her, as I can sympathize with all that she's gone through. I also have her second book that I can't wait to read, though I hope that things are much better for her this time around. I really feel for her and I wish there was some way I could let her know just how much I enjoyed reading her book. All I can say is: hang in there,kid.

Having had a brief remenissant moment of the spice girls I was suddenly curious as to the true details as to why Geri left the band. I always appreciated what they stood for as a kid, with their Girl Power and fun group of girls antics. Let me tell you that I found this book to be a great read! Gave me a completely different view of Ginger Spice and a whole level of respect for her as a person. Geri seems to be a sweet, geniuine, nice and thoughtful person, She seemed like a genuinely real person who had a dream and achieved her goal. She's very much the character she portrayed in the Spice Girls, spunky, animated and full of Girl Power. Honestly after reading this book I now see her as a more delicate, fragile person, who loves to laugh and enjoy the simple parts of life, but hates monotony and honestly as humans we all do, well, I do anyways. I recommend this book for those who were/are/is a Spice Girls fan.

I will be the first to admit, when I first heard "Wannabe" on the radio, I had no clue who the group was that was doing it, nor did I have any sort of active interest in them at all.
Not until I saw "Spice World, The Movie" did I fall in love with their humor, and wit, and music. Of Course, not long after I got involved with their music, and started collecting their CDs (both of them), Geri (formerly known as Ginger) left the group.
I enjoyed this book. I was able to better understand Geri as a person, and learn what prompted her to leave the group.
This book will re-think any thoughts you might have previoulsy had, and help you take Geri seriously.

"If Only" shows the world just who lies beneath Ginger Spice; a shy, direction-less girl from the poor side of the tracks desperate to be somebody. Her recollections are at times both painful and funny, and the prose is well written. That was one of the nice things about the book - Geri wries like a person putting her thoughts to paper (not like so many others who try to cram as many 'big-sounding' words as possible to make themselves seem smarter). She comes across as an intelligent yet falliable person whose dreams of success came true, and is much the wiser for it.
I highly recommend this book (in fact I think that young girls everywhere should read it, if only to discover how damaging false self image can be). I look forward to reading the sequel "For The Record", which picks up where "If Only" leaves off.

Great read, Geri did a great job at sharing her life through text. I ordered a USED book and it came in great condition, the shipping was fast, and ill deffinitely be ordering again!

I'm not a big fan of the english speech, I guess for being an American I can't identify with the english lifestyle.
