I work in the beauty industry and have always been a fan of Leighton and his work! I thought I knew a lot about him - I didn't! This book isn't written with frills and flounces, it is a tale of an ordinary kid from Bradford who ends up leading a lifestyle of the rich and famous. What is interesting, though, is how he got there. Leighton doesn't skirt around the truth but tells his life exactly as it has happened. it is funny, blunt, honest and what I would call a real romp of a story. From being a forklift truck driver, to learning his craft on cruise ships, Leighton does not paint a picture of an easy ride to the top, so for anyone starting off in their career this would be a fabulous read. Leighton's tenacity pays off and you have to admire him from it. He is still just a boy from Bradford, though, and anyone who can fit a guy called Granville in his story, alongside Joan Collins, Jade Jagger and jam roly poly has me turning every page with interest.
