Continuing the story of the hugely successful television and radio broadcaster, this sequel documents the remaining journey of self-discovery undertaken by Chris Evans. Picking up after the host’s purchase of the immensely popular Virgin Radio, the account depicts how Evans had become a media mogul in his own right, until his life took a darker turn. The end of his career at his own station is covered, followed by the ensuing bitter court case and his bout with alcoholism. Highlighting his discovery of singer Billie Piper and his second chance at fame, this biography captures Chris Evans as he rose phoenix-like from the ashes again, regaining his popularity and professional reputation. Told with wit, verve, and startling honesty, this is the final part of one man’s quest in which he learns what holds the most importance in life.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Memoirs of a Fruitcake: Billie, Breakfast and Beyond, Chris Evans, In It's Not What You Think Chris Evans had climbed the mountain that leads to the peak of success, admittedly with the occasional stumble along the way. He was rich, famous and now owner of his very own radio station & media company. What could possibly go wrong? As it turned out, the answer was everything!well almost. When we left our loveable ginger hero at the end of It's Not What You Think, Chris Evans had just used his hard earned cash, built up over a hugely successful TV and radio broadcasting career, to purchase the immensely lucrative Virgin Radio. For a while, it looked like Chris had made it. He had achieved some of the highest listening figures radio had ever seen, defined an era of television with Don't Forget Your Toothbrush and TFI Friday and as owner of his own radio station, had become a media mogul playing alongside the big boys. But little did he or any of us know, things were about to take a very dark turn. Fired by the station he once owned and embroiled in the ensuing bitter court case, Chris's long held childhood dreams of a job in radio lay in tatters. An endless drink fueled lifestyle with an array of so-called 'mates' began to take its toll. Bored and creatively frustrated, the shooting star of British broadcasting had plunged into a downward spiral so deep that escape seemed almost impossible. Until, that is, along came his salvation in the form of a young singer called Billie Piper. Only then could Chris see a way out of the madness. Would he be able to rise phoenix-like from the ashes again? Would he ever be able to regain his popularity, his professional reputation and find true personal happiness? Wouls Chris finally find the maturity to discover that in fact, it is not all about him? Told with the same wit, verve and startling honesty that suprised and delighted readers of It's Not What You Think, this is the final part (for now) of Chris Evans's journey of self discovery, in which he learns what it is in life that is most important.
