A charmingly lurid memoir -- Daily Telegraph, February 2, 2008
Gossipy, fun and endlessly entertaining -- The Daily Record, February 2, 2008
"Multi-talented John Barrowman, the star of the Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood, tells of behind-the-scenes celeb high jinks, hilarious memories and the sometimes moving story of his two decades of work in the film, TV, music and theatre industry in this open and entertaining autobiography" -- The Glasgow Herald, Jan 08
Anything Goes is a refreshingly honest, funny and engaging read that hooks readers from the opening chapter. -- Woman's Way Magazine (Ireland), Feb 08
John Barrowman is on a bit of a roll at the moment. Everything he touches seems to turn to gold and this heart felt autobiography is no exception ...This is a charming read that really gives us insight into John Barrowman.

First impressions are good. The front cover has a true-to life photo of John looking natural and very happy. Colour theme is blue and silver - his colours, and very classy.
The book is short - just 245 pages, so no room for wasted words! Many more pictures inside. And a final treat - on the back cover one of him as a boy, one as Captain Jack, and one of him in his bathers!!!!! At that stage, I melted all over the floor.
And so, at 11pm last night, I started to read. And I just HAD to finish in one go. Forgive me if I'm not making sense today; I turned the last page at 4am. I don't ever do well on two hours' sleep, as my family will testify. But maybe adrenaline is keeping me going, or perhaps some of John's legendary energy levels evaporated off the pages and into my brain, because I really don't feel too bad today.
In the introduction, John asks us to imagine that we're sitting in our pyjamas in the lounge of his Cardiff sitting room, sharing a drink, some music and the memories. That's almost an invitation isn't it??????
The book is divided into chapters, each named after a song from some of John's favourite musicals. So themes such as "Being Alive", "Live, Laugh, Love" and "High, Flying Adored" very aptly set the scene for what is to come.
The events described in the book are not arranged in chronological sequence, but as a series of reminiscences.Read more ›
There are added comments at the foot of each page that will keep you smiling regardless of what the story is- there are some hard hitting truths told honestly that are a real eye opener to anyone who thinks John's had an easy life.
Overall I would describe the book as a masterpiece!
It's not great literature, but it's an enjoyable and easy read. Within it's genre I would view it as being right up there at the top.
The only thing I didn't like was the timeline jumping around, I found that frustrating, but maybe that's partly the historian in me wanting my books to follow a straight timeline.
unlike the other reviewer i have never met john well not yet anyway or heard any of the storys before so i love them
i love the way he put's little explanations of the words or what he's on about underneath
i know it's not a good review but i'm only up to chapter seven so give me chace
