there are two sections of pictures - childhood and oasis. the childhood pictures are very cute. the book is also surprisingly well written and there are some great stories that have never otherwise been documented. it tells us about the gallagher's childhood how the band was formed and how they eventually got a record deal and rose to fame. definitely worth buying for anyone who even vaguely likes oasis.

The product is quite new though it is described as a second-hand book. The content is fun as well. Even normal people (not oasis fan) might be interested in those stories.

This book is perfect for anybody who likes to know some Gallagher's background. Made me cry and made me laugh, made me think I understand everything about them now. Made me love them even more. And made me 'hungry' for more informations. Hope the other brothers will write their point of view soon..

I'm normally only interested in rock biogs that are centered on the music and don't care about tales of outrageous behavior etc., since I pretty much have a life myself. Still, I remember the Britpop phenomenon well so I picked this up as cheap as they come and was in for a very pleasant surprise. Had this story been employed successfully as a theme for a novel it would be seen as a tale of both psychological and sociological depth, and an almost classic story of what happens to the pauper when he becomes prince. As such, Paul Gallagher is a perfectly situated narrator, standing just outside the center of events, simultaneously detached from it and part of it, the unlucky one who got left behind when success came knocking at the Gallagher family's door. He is a formidable eyewitness to a tale that seems to take a bunch of old cliches about the Manchester Irish immigrant community and push them to hitherto unknown extremes, but somehow he manages to tell it in a way that makes it all seem perfectly logical. He is in many ways a bitter man whose view of his brothers even at the best of time is no better than ambivalent, and he doesn't mind saying it, often with more than just a touch of irony. It is impossible to judge exactly how much his manuscript was cleaned up by his co-writer, but that really is irrelevant. This is a work credited to them both and should be judged as such. I'm not saying it reads like a novel because it doesn't have that kind of literary quality, but that is fully compensated by the notion you have as a reader that all this actually happened in all its grotesqueness. The book was published in 1996, so it only covers the group's production up until and including the second album, which seems apt considering the fact that from then on the quality of their output has been a pretty bumpy ride, to put it diplomatically. Perhaps the book should have included more about the consequences of Noel and Liam Gallagher's excessive drug taking, which hardly helped them gain better control of their intolerable behaviour and pathetically big-headed exclamations in public, but that is really my only main criticism. Apart from that Paul Gallagher and Terry Christian have managed in tandem to create a highly unusual, sensitive, knowledgeable and honest piece of work that stretches far beyond what we have come to expect from rock music biographies.
