At first I loved John then I came to dislike him from stories I'd heard of him doijng awful things, after reading this I like and admire him for who he is and the life he has chosen, it doesn't go into gory details and the little stories he puts in and humour he adds makes you feel like you're talking to him over a cup of tea.

I personally enjoy his notes 'catching you out' that I haven't found in a book or autobiography before which is something new and nice, it also feels like he's reading your mind.

Overall I recommend this as a good read for the money and I'm certainly interested in the next book he puts out and interested in seeing him perfome live sometime because of the book.

The pictures are nice and he doesn't use complicated language or attempts to confuse you along the way, it's a nice quick read and all of it fully takes in easily.

I did giggle to myself several times throughout reading it and talking to my partner about events in Johns life :)

I read this book in less than 24 hours. Well written, hilarious and tragic in parts. This man is an entertainer in public as well as in private life. Can't wait to see him on stage.

  As entertaining as the man himself

John Barrowman certainly has packed a lot into his life so far and his autobiography reads like a series of engaging anecdotes. If you like the actor, you'll love the book.

Wow what can I say my brother brought this for my birthday its a great read. I can recommend this book to anyone. He says he wants you to feel like he's sitting in your living room sprawled out on your sofa telling you about his life. It does just that. Perfect Just shows what a outgoing funny guy he is. Goes from his childhood to theater to his feeling about getting the part in doctor who. A great read with brilliant pictures to.

This is a great insight to one hell of a character. Full of interesting tit bits about his life, down right mortifying stories from mishaps on stage and some lovely heart warming stories to reflect the different sides of the man. Would definately recommend this book to anyone :)

What a fantastic insight into this man's life. So frank and honest, couldn't put it down. Such a talented entertainer and an all round "nice guy".

I absolutely love this book it is just wonderful everything you would want to know and so much more. His approach to writing is completely unique and it really does show what a genuine person he really is despite his "thick skinned" facade.
Success has most certainly shaped the person he is but I do Not believe he is "Big Headed" or "snobbish" as some have said he is
A Fabulous read, you simply won't be able to put it down
