Timberlake's editor, Elizabeth Sullivan, called the book "experiential", saying, "it's a highly designed mix of stories, memories, musings, and personal images. You can open it up anywhere and read a vignette or look at a series of photographs or wild graphics. But in the end, the elements come together to create an exciting portrait of an artist and human being."[4] The book covers episodes of his personal and professional life, including his childhood, The All-New Mickey Mouse Club, NSYNC, the beginning of his solo career, his internal songwriting process, struggles, the creation and inspiration behind several of his songs, such as "Cry Me a River", "SexyBack", "Can't Stop the Feeling!", "Mirrors" and "Say Something", Saturday Night Live, skits with Jimmy Fallon, Jessica Biel and his son, Silas.[5][6]
