Book Description

You’ve seen him head home with countless hotties and a megawatt grin on his face – now learn how he does it…

In 2011, loveable ladies magnet Gary Beadle was jobless and down to his last £20 when he was randomly asked to be in a new reality TV show called Geordie Shore. He’d never even heard of its American predecessor, Jersey Shore, but with his only prospects being his next dole cheque – and swayed by the prospect of some great nights out – he signed himself up for the challenge. He could never have anticipated the insane new life he was about to lead.

From a shy youngster at school, who was the captain of his football team, Gary also never expected the effect he would have on the British public – especially its women. After leaving school at 16, Gary fell into a variety of jobs, even having a brief spell in the Royal Marines. Unfortunately, nothing stuck and, by the time he reached 22, he hadn’t a clue what to do next – until the night he was asked to join the cast of MTV’s Geordie Shore.

Now, for the first time, Gary reveals what growing up in his native Newcastle was like, explains his winning luck with the ladies, and offers up his much sought after tips on how to bag a bird on a night out: something he’s proved he’s pretty much an expert at.

From job-hunting to making public appearances in front of thousands of screaming girls, Gary is secretly amazed by the change in his fortunes. He may be known for his crazy, fun-loving nature, but there’s much more to Gary than girls, booze and nights out. And it’s all packed into this – his autobiography.

This book is basically just a re telling of what happened in every episode, was very boring to read as we already know what happened in the episodes, I was hoping for more info on stuff we don't get to see.
Not impressed

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible 11 July 2014
Horrible. I want my money back. He's the most boring person on the planet and clearly doesn't know how to write a book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring 28 Mar. 2014
By Becky
Format:Kindle Edition
Interesting at first , but when he went on to talk about Geordie shore it was basically just reading what we have all watched on the show. Was hoping to read more about things we don't see.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sheer arrogance 8 Mar. 2014
By Emma
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Never read so much self obsession and arrogance. Horrific towards women and in general just a very cocky description of how great he supposedly is at everything.

1.0 out of 5 stars Diary of a narcissist 16 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like Geordie Shore and couldn't help but get this book when I heard about it. I didn't have high hopes that Gaz would produce a literary masterpiece but it was a disappointment to say the least. The start of the book, which I suspect was less vetted by the shadow writer he no doubt used, read like a child's school essay.

There are no big reveals in this book. Instead, we get a history of "Gaz being good at everything". A dishonest, revisionist look upon his own life in which he is an all round nice guy. If Geordie Shore was edited by Gaz it would be a rolling montage of himself with all his nasty elements removed. That's basically what this book is. You'll know if you've watch the show that Gaz as a nice person is nonsense.

His youth is consumed by "getting in with the popular crowd", his attempts at a normal life fail because he felt himself too special. He quit the Royal Marines because he wasn't getting enough individual praise and attention.

I hoped this book would shine a light on the inner personalities of the Geordie Shore cast. Instead it's more about marketing himself and trying to control his public image. Generally, a boring and very badly written novel.

1.0 out of 5 stars dreadful in the extreme 2 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well where to start? Lack of content. Lack of revelation. Gaz is so unlikable, it's actually amazing. Could have been written by a 5 year old. A complete re-write of Geordie Shore series and the parsnip pointers are a complete rehash of 'the game'

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother / waste of time 15 Mar. 2015
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
How anyone would give this 4 stars never mind 5 is beyond me! I bought this on kindle for 99p and that's still too much for it! I thought Holly's book was bad this was way worse! It's basically the show written down from Gaz point of view! He comes across as a complete womaniser and I sincerely hope that any lads reading this book do not take any tips from his "pulling advice" don't waste your money!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars If you like Gaz it not a bad book 3 Oct. 2014
By Kay
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Ok book, I quite like Gaz in the reality series. He's not got much to say and to be honest a lot of it is very forgettable. The book as a whole does not portray Gaz in a very good light which is a shame as there were sections to the book which shows he has a softer side. Not a bad book for fans of Gaz and Geordie shore, just wonder the amount of input by managers and such to carry on the 'bad boy' image.
