Product Description

Amazon Review

Just for the Record is the second autobiography from ex-Spice Girl, dog lover and United Nations Goodwill Ambassador, Geri Halliwell. In If Only Geri charted her "rags to riches" journey from Watford to the point at which she dramatically left the Spice Girls. In this sumptuously illustrated book she candidly explains "what happened next".

Her post Spice Girls life has not, it emerges, been easy. Having buried "Ginger Spice", Geri admits it has been a struggle to shake off her old image and establish herself as solo artist. While she did eventually manage to clock up four No. 1 singles and two Top 10 albums, she was plagued by stalkers and the tabloid press and battled with depression and a serious eating disorder. She confesses to regularly starving herself and to bingeing on a chocolate cake fished out of a rubbish bin. The most unnerving thing about this book is the contrast between the images it contains and some of Halliwell's more painful reminiscences.

The story has a happy ending: with the help of friends George Michael and Robbie Williams, Geri managed to beat her eating disorders. She now advocates eating well and exercising regularly and seems, even with a somewhat flagging musical career, genuinely content with her lot. The prurient will be disappointed to find she only has nice words for ex-lover Chris Evans and her former colleagues. Wannabes everywhere will find this girl still has the power to charm. --Travis Elborough

Format: Hardcover
We all knew it would happen, we all knew it would be good - but what we didn't expect was such a magnificently artistic and glossily finished product!
Geri Halliwell has to be the most famous woman in UK Pop at the moment (Calm down, Kylie is australian!) She is certainly the most talked about!
Like us all, Geri is human - not that many of the public would know it, after the battering the press have given her recently. This book revelas a fragile and very vulnerable side to a girl the nation should admire and hold up as an icon of our time.
The book is substantial, glossy and extremely clever. You would be abnormal to be able to put this down halfway through!

I'm Geri's all time #1 fan so to have a total understanding of how she dealt and went through her pop career is something really interesting. Her feelings, thoughts, decisions, etc is all in this book.
It could be longer and in more depth though, but still, it's a gorgeous piece of work

I'm not much of a reader but I find wished this book in 3 days. I've always been a huge fan and it was nice to see her softer side. I wish Geri well in all that she does. A new album would be good.

Book an ok read, if you're a fan. Not particularly well written, but feels as if it comes from the heart.

I am a huge fan of Geri Halliwell. This book is fab, I really didn't think she would have too much to say over the last 3-4 years. She talks about her eating habbits and how she still suffers from bulima but every day its getting better. I think she is a very brave woman and I think people will want to read about this. She is a briliant person and I love her. For any one who likes or dislikes Geri Halliwell is a fab read, and it has loads of new glossy photgraphs of Geri and they are coll too.

I have been a Geri fan for a while now and she never ceases to amaze me. This book is truly entertaining and yet moving to read. The biggest plus is the pages of pictures. These full page pictures taken especially for the book are remarkable. I also like seeing the pictures from her own personal collection. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
