Honest, heartfelt and human, this is the new remarkable memoir from Gary Barlow.
From the Author
Gary Barlow is a British singer-songwriter and record producer who found worldwide fame as a member of British pop group Take That. Since forming in 1989 Take That have won eight BRIT awards, sold over 45 million records and over eight million concert tickets.
Gary is one of Britain's most successful songwriters, having written 15 Number One singles and being a six-time recipient of an Ivor Novello Award. Aside from his achievements with Take That, he has also co-written and produced music for other renowned artists including Dame Shirley Bassey, Sir Elton John and Robbie Williams.
Gary has released three solo albums over the course of his career, the last of which 'Since I Saw You Last' (his first solo album in over 14 years) became the ninth biggest selling album of the year in the UK with sales of more than 600,000.
In 2011 Gary also firmly established himself in the world of UK TV when he agreed to be the Head Judge on The X Factor. A position he held for three years. He then went on to make two documentaries: 'Journey To Afghanistan' and 'On Her Majesty's Service'. In 2016/17 he conceived, produced and starred in his own talent show for the BBC, 'Let It Shine' which sort to find a boy band to be the stars of a new musical.
In more recent years, Gary has also turned his attention to the world of theatre, composing the score for the hugely successful 'Finding Neverland' and working alongside screenwriter Tim Firth to write the music and lyrics for musical 'The Girls'? and also more recently working alongside his Mark Owen, Howard Donald and Robbie Williams to produce 'The Band' a record breaking musical featuring the music of Take That.
Gary has also worked closely with a number of charities and key events in recent years including twice organising and performing at BBC Children In Need Rocks. He also organised the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations, which were held in front of the palace in 2012.See all Product description

However, I decided to buy her this new revenue-generating regurgitation of well-known plights in the life of Mr Barlow just to shut her up. Let's face it, we all heard what he went through when Take That split up. I'm not going to comment on that side of things because I'll undoubtedly become the least popular person on Amazon Reviews and probably have my passport revoked by a Take That fan who works for Border Control. What I will say though is that I can't imagine there's a great deal in this book that Take That or Barlow fans (except Ken Barlow fans) don't already know.
My wife loves it. This should come as no surprise to anyone. It could have contained nothing but the words "Thanks for giving me a few more quid" and she'd have still loved it, such is her admiration of Gaz.
if you're a fan reading this and now hate me, I'll just have to live with it.
If you're a partner/husband/wife/boyfriend/girlfriend looking to buy it for a loved one - just buy it if you know they're infatuated with him. I mean, you can't really go wrong can you? Besides, he's not replied to my constant efforts to get him to come and surprise her by singing on the doorstep. I'm reasonably happy that he hasn't because I'm not sure I could bear another moment of hearing about him, never mind hearing him sing in person.
Did I mention that we're off to see them in concert in 2019? Yes, I've had to pay for that too.
But hey, life is short and it's nice to have a peaceful few moments to oneself whilst she has her head buried in the book or is talking to others about how she's going to see him in concert.
p.s. he seems like a nice enough bloke but he's just a bit too nice for my liking and these are the small things in life that bug husbands.
I emersed myself in Gary's story not stopping until I had my fix of this amazing journey. Revelation after revelation came out surprising me continually to the point where I thought do I even know anything about this man?
The sadness of losing a child is one that I pray i will never have to experience but my heart broke for Gary and his family.
This book was certainly an eye opener and the next time I to a Take That concert i will look at them very differently. Mr. Barlow i salute you.
