"Where else but in Boy George's autobiography would there be an index with these sorts of headings: Heroin; Michael, George; Hair, Dyeing. . . . Now that's entertainment." - Rolling Stone

Boy George-the iconic leader of the eighties' pop and new wave band Culture Club-offers a candid look at his life, including his relationship with drummer Jon Moss, his addiction to heroin and difficult road to sobriety, his famous cross-dressing, and his fluctuating fame.

    Comments about Take It Like a Man:

    I was mostly disappointed in the quality of the print of the book. The photos within which I would have expected to be on a glossy paper to highlight the clarity of the photos, are in print as is the context. There was not a great deal of information available on your website for this book to give a clear indication if it was a worthy read. I could only find one review which of course was glowing. My main complaint is the size, the quality of the print and the photos.

      Comments about Take It Like a Man:

      I have absolutely loved reading this book. As a long time fan of George's I was completed engrossed and never wanted to put it down. George has been brutally honest in his description of growing up in the 70's and 80's and all the highs and lows of being in Culture Club. His failed relationships, drug addiction and subsequent recovery. I have always held George in such high esteem but after reading this book I now appreciate him and his achievements even more. his book is a must read.
