Book Description

5 May 2008
Cliff Richard has been Britain's longest surviving and most consistent hit music maker. Starting his career as a rock 'n' roll threat to decent, upstanding citizens, he is now a friend to Royalty and prime ministers, a Knight and a holder of the OBE. This book tells his story chronologically, through the voices of his friends, family and colleagues - like listening in on a dinner party attended by most of the key people in his career. The stories told reveal Cliff as seen by those closest to him and, in contrast to the many official publications, this book does not just include the flattering stories. The author's probing questions have elicited extraordinary memories and observations, previously unheard by the public. Heavily illustrated with rare and interesting photographs of Cliff at work and play, this book will stand as a lasting testament to one of the most glorious careers in British show business.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic book release in years!! 22 April 2008
By Luke73
Steve Turner is an official Cliff biographer, and this book is no exception to the amount of wealth of research to the amount of people who knew Cliff Richard through the 50 years in showbusiness and his life from a youngster.

This authorised book is like a sideline to Steve Turner's biography of Cliff in previous books. Here is a compendium of quotes from people/and Cliff, taken from the exact year from his life. It is unique the way the book is compiled, with quotes you may have heard already. But still a great read.

The icing on the cake in this book are the wealth of photographs which Steve Turner has access to, from his Birth through School and his career. Pictures which you have not seen before, as well as memorabilia pictures, magazine covers and all sorts. It is illustrated throughout with Colour and B/W photos!

It also includes a great discography at the end of the book.

The book itself is of average size and not that heavy in weight.

There's going to be another book in September with a biographical account of Cliff's 50 years in showbusiness which can be pre-order at Amazon.

'Cliff Richard: The Batchelor Boy' is a must for all Cliff's fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars cliff richard the bachelor boy (biography) 10 Jun 2010

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Written in anecdotal form by people who knew Cliff at different stages of his life, making you feel you really get to know him. I've been a Cliff fan most of my life and yet there were many facts I didn't know about him and his family. Lots of photographs, many hitherto unseen, of when he was young, litter the pages.
I borrowed this book from the public library but was so impessed I wanted my own copy. Lovely quality paper and cover etc.
A "must have" for any Cliff fan (especially of his rock days).

5.0 out of 5 stars Cliff revealed! 26 Nov 2012
By Sheri - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was quite taken aback at the honest comments made by Cliff, Cliff's friends, and associates in this very honest book. A great collection of personal interviews and excerpts from interviews throughout Cliff's long career. Steve Turner's work is very thorough. You'll be surprised by what some of Cliff's mates have to say about him. This is not a "tell all" book, but rather a "behind the scenes" glimpse into the fascinating personality of Cliff. I strongly recommend this for any Cliff fan and even for curious non-fans. An entertaining read!
