Taking this and that from Robbie, 29 Aug. 2006
A well constructed and written book that showcases the life of one of Britains brightest musical prospects in the past 20 years. From his early life growing up in Stoke on Trent with an over protective mother and a travelling father, to the meteoric heights he has reached today.
The book details his start as a 16 year old in a floundering boy band named Take That and how they went on to rule the teenage music world for nearly a decade. His loves and let downs and how he has ultimately dealt with the fame that has been given to him by an adoring public.
The piece is written in a somewhat biased way, but does not go out its way to show that Robbie Williams is anything close to an Angel. The author deals with the case of his miscarried child with sensitivity and good emotion, but goes into great details to explain how fame and his earlier life led to his lack of success in the emotional stakes.
A good read if you want to know more about this talented singer, but not as detailed as many of the boring biographies which go to great lengths to pick each song apart for its individual merits.
