But this autobiography is a huge let down. Firstly, once you take away the photos, it comes in at under 200 pages. In a relatively large font. I'd expect that in an autobiography of a One Direction member, not a man who's been around as long as Scott.
It feels rushed... key moments in his life like the loss of a loved on are glossed over in a few short pages, we never really get to know why he was such a profound person in Scott's life.
Likewise his coming out - he explains how he told his family, but there's no details on growing up gay at school, how his friends reacted etc. I know he doesn't want his sexuality to define him, but in an autobiography it deserves more than the space it received.
Equally his descent into alcohol abuse is also interesting, but then suddenly seems to end - it's as if he feels like he'll be boring us if if he dedicates more than two pages to any one subject.
Chapters on his documentary for BBC3 about the world's worst place to be gay are fascinating - it's clearly a subject he feels passionate about - it's a shame that he's not as passionate about telling us about the rest of his life.
If you don't really care about Scott and just want celebrity anecdotes, then this is for you. But often they are too brief. Chapters feel like links between songs - brief and to the point, with no flesh to their bones sp as not to bore the reader/ listener before the next song is played.
This book is for people with a low attention span who wants a quick read. But for those of us who wanted to know more about the man who has kept us entertained for more than a decade, you'll learn almost as much from this book as you would by listening to one of his shows.
I'm not a Scott Mills fan and have never really heard any of his shows, but I came away with respect for him as a broadcaster and an entertainer.
It was a book I couldnt put down. It is written in the style that many listeners to his Radio 1 show would be familiar with mixing serious issues with comical times and friends hes made as his career progressed. The book didnt dwell much on his childhood like some autobiographies do but this doesnt mean to say it shock sensationalist as its not. Its just a down to earth story about a guy who has a passion for radio get on the career ladder and progress and the fun and troubles he had along the way.
If your a fan of his Radio 1 show you wont be let down by the book at all
If you're a fan of Scott Mills and his show you will definitely love this book.
This is Scott Mills at his best, Love you bye.
