First came Ebury's massively successful, 2001 illustrated account of Robbie's touring world, Somebody Someday. Now the time has come for the complete, intimate story of Robert P Williams. Spanning his childhood through Take That to his current status as rock icon, probing his love life and his family relationships, this is closer than you'd ever thought you'd get to Robbie Williams. Written by Chris Heath, who has spent nearly two years working with Rob on this book, every word is imbued with Rob's humour, charisma, talent, memories and complexity. But more than ever before, this book tells the truth about his extraordinary life. Billy Connolly told his story through his wife, and with Rolling Stone journalist, Chris Heath, Robbie's own story promises to be as brilliantly and insightfully told. You may have seen his face a million times, heard his music every day, followed him from the beginning of Take That, but this is a man with some serious surprises in store. This is a ground-breaking publication; a truly original and brilliantly written book; a grippingly honest story of an extraordinary man.

Robbie Williams first conceived the idea for this book when Chris Heath came to interview him in 2002. Rob felt that between them, he and Chris, a friend and respected music journalist, would write the very best and most honest book. Chris, also an investigative news writer, has written for Rolling Stone, Details, Telegraph and Sunday Times, amongst many others. His subjects have varied from Madonna and Lisa Marie Presley to politicians, murderers and artists. Chris and Robbie have spent nearly two years working on this book.Review:
"The definitive book on Robbie Williams" * Heat * "A phenomenal piece of journalism... an absorbing essay on fame and the music industry" * Observer * "Perceptive, sympathetic and sometimes shocking. It is also - because Williams is a genuinely amusing man - wonderfully funny" * Sunday Telegraph * "The most lustrous and scrupulously observed anatomy of the madness of top-flight 21st century celebrity existence that it has ever been my deep joy to read" * Independent on Sunday * "It's all there, the inside story that the fans have guessed at and the tabloids have done their best to invent...Until Mrs Williams finally does appear, nobody is going to get closer to Robbie than this" * Sunday Times *
