"Anything Goes" traces the life and career of John Barrowman, from his Glaswegian childhood and American adolescence to his first big break starring alongside Elaine Paige in "Anything Goes". Since then, John has made a name for himself with outstanding West End achievements, including an Olivier Award nomination, and success in the movies the "Producers" and "De-Lovely". His triumphant transition into television was confirmed when "Torchwood" won a Best Drama BAFTA. John also lays bare his personal life: his emigration as a child, coming out to his family and his 2006 civil partnership with long-term boyfriend Scott Gill. "Anything Goes" is revelatory and insightful, told with real heart and characteristic Barrowman charm. This is a wonderful tale of how one boy achieved his dreams.

Top 100 Music Reviewer

I bought this book as I knew little about John Barrowman other than his music and the fact he was in Torchwood.

I agree with previous reviwers that this is an excellent and very well written book, it's honest and funny.

John was not an overnight success but came up through the ranks I was surprised to learn just how much he has done in his life from movies to stage shows to recordings etc.

John is very fond of his family and also proud of his roots and it shows.

I was sorry when I finished the book so now I will have to buy his second book to carry on the story.

 Fantastic Read!

If you are a JB fan then you have to read this book. It gives an insight into his early years, before he hit the big time with Dr Who and Torchwood. It really enlightens us as to how he became the man he is today, and how much he loves his family. He comes across as an all round nice guy. Written by John and his sister with a very tongue in cheek attitude - plenty of witty moments! A must have for true JB fans!
