This book has become the definitive unauthorized biography of Robbie Williams, and provides a 'warts and all' account of his phenomenal journey to the top. Covering his childhood in Stoke-on-Trent, his boy band years with Take That (and how he got back with them in 2010), his battle with drink and drugs, his often-troubled love life and how he beat his demons and settled down to become a family man. All of it based on exclusive interviews with those closest to Robbie and with previously unpublished photos from the family archive, this is a must-have book for all Robbie fans.

I liked some of Robbie Williams' music but I wasn't an avid fan. However, I found this book fascinating and hard to put down. It explains so much about the man and his music, and for that reason alone is worth reading. The influential figures in his life leap from the pages and the whole book is written in a smooth, flowing style that keeps reader interest. Where some biographies can become boring, this one is definitely not!
"'Exactly the kind of scandal-probing stuff a fan would crave and it's a compulsive read' (Heat.) 'Contains riveting revelations' (OK magazine.)"
