About the Author
Take That are Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Jason Orange and Mark Owen. All perform primarily on vocals though each have some instrumental talent/song-writing capability. After seeing major success in the early to mid 1990s as a five person boyband act, a reformed four man version of the band achieved new success in the late 2000s.

If you understand that this is predominantly a picture book, then I think you will be happy with your purchase, however, if you are looking for more about the story of the band then you would be better buying My Take, Gary Barlow's autobiography.
Like "Take One", "Take Two" is a fairly thick hardback book of photographs but this volume deals with their superb comeback, from the initial press conference announcing their return until the stunning "The Circus" tour. There are professional photos plus more candid shots taken by the band, all nicely laid out on the page, and most of the pictures come with comments from the four members of Take That. As with "Take One" the comments aren't along the lines of "What do I look like? LOL" but are instead thoughtful, considered, and often fairly long. It comes across as something of a labour of love for the band, a coffee table book for their fans. What is really evident however is how much they love one another, and you really get the feeling that they really are best friends both on and off the stage.
A very, very nice book indeed, superbly presented, and combined with "Take One", the 2010 calendar, and the forthcoming live album and DVD of "The Circus" tour this will make a fantastic Christmas stocking for any Take That fan.
Fantastic service, brilliant value for money and I certainly wouldn't hesitate ordering from this supplier again. Thank you.
I ordered the books from Australia and received them quickly and in perfect condition, no scratches or damaged corners.
The second book is the better one without a doubt.
If you or someone you know likes Take That and are thinking of buying it then do so as it is still worth a buy. A proper fan will still cherish it I am sure but dont expect too much. I hope that this helps with your choice to buy the books. I am off for a second read now - and waiting for amazon to send me the Circus DVD and CD in November - went to the concert so know this one is going to be awesome. By the way there are some wonderful behind the scenes of the circus ...... enjoy!!
Having been to the recent TAKE THAT; THE CIRCUS tour, seeing the photos of them as clowns brings back a lot of memories because they are so clear it is untrue.
A must buy for any true take that fans, both the books are amazing.
