Gerry Stergiopoulos grew up in Greece but finished his studies at Edinburgh University where he took three degrees (BA, M.Sc, M.Phil,) in History of Art, Classical Archaeology and History. Before coming to the public's attention on Channel 4's Big Brother, he worked at Sotheby's and as a curator for a well-known private Gallery in St James. When he is not hard at work on his PhD on Bronze Age art, he is usually to be found comforting and counseling countless girlfriends and women he meets on the train home to Clapham.
"Treat them Mean to Keep them Keen" is basically Gerry's Guide to dating exclusively for women from the perspective of their Gay Best friend. He is currently working on a follow-up, on the same satirical style but this time on Sex and Relationships.
"Treat Them Mean and Keep Them Keen" has been favourably reviewed by:
The Daily Mail:
The Sun newspaper:
''Closer'', "More" and "Scarlet" magazines, the ITV daytime show ''Loose Women'' among others.
In October 2009, the Italian Translation of the book entitled "Trattali male" reached Number 8 in the Italian non-fiction Best Seller list. The book has also been published in Estonian and Russian with more translations to follow soon.
