Introduction
Introducing Harry Styles: youngest, hottest member of the boy band of the moment: One Direction.

1. Holmes, Sweet Home
Harry Edward Styles was raised in the sleepy English town of Holmes Chapel. This chapter provides the low-down on his first years with mum Anne, dad Des and big sister Gemma. Though he was just seven when his parents decided to call time on their marriage, the only direction that Harry’s ever known is up! Several years on from his parents’ split, the aspiring songster was fronting his very own band of indie rebels, White Eskimo. Then came the fateful X-Factor application – filled out in secret by Harry’s mum – that was to change Harry’s world forever . . .

2. X Marks the Spot
Pre-X-Factor, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles were just five teens with huge dreams. This chapter charts their transformation – courtesy of mentor Simon Cowell – from sweet, shy wannabes to the unstoppable force that is One Direction, featuring secrets from inside the pad they shared in Cheshire (hint: the band that stays together, parties together), all the gossip from their week with Cowell in sunny Marbella and Harry’s not-so-secret on-set crush . . .

3. Up All (Day and) Night
Though Matt Cardle took the X-Factor crown, ‘We’re definitely going to stay together,’ promised Zayn. ‘This is not the last of One Direction.’ And, clearly, he’s a man of his word. Charting the boys’ first whirlwind tour of the UK, the inking of their multi-million-dollar deal with Syco and the recording of their world-beating debut, Up All Night – in glam locations around London, Stockholm and Los Angeles – this chapter shows that in the long-run Harry and the boys of 1D are anything but runners-up.

4. Free Stylin’
A chapter devoted to Harry’s fabulous 2012: the year when One Direction made music history! Released in March, the boys’ all-conquering debut, Up All Night stormed to the top of the charts, earning Harry and his bandmates a place in The Guinness Book of Records. Surpassing even the Beatles, 1D is the only British band ever to debut at number one in the States with their first release.

5. Moves like Jagger
Harry has more in common with a young Mick Jagger than just dashing good looks . . . just ask any of the string of A-list beauties who’ve fallen for his charms. This chapter charts his whirlwind romance with America’s sweetheart, the elfin Taylor Swift, from the moment their eyes first locked backstage at the X-Factor, to the epic row that finished it – read all about the tattoos, secret getaways (in England’s uber-romantic Lake District and the exotic Virgin Islands) and injuries that are likely to inspire Taylor’s upcoming hit singles!

6. Take Me Home
A chapter devoted to the recording of One Direction’s feverishly anticipated sophomore album, Take Me Home – and the glamorous women, tattoos and celebrity friends acquired by Harry along the way. Released in November 2012, the album sold more than one million copies in the first week alone – making it the third fastest selling album of 2012 (beaten by Harry’s former flame Taylor Swift and Mumford & Sons alone). To celebrate, the boys opted to close their wildly successful year in style – with a headline show at NY’s iconic Madison Square Garden on December 3rd. Many devoted fans hoping for a ticket were destined to be sadly disappointed. Within less than a minute, they’d sold out completely.

6. New Direction?
When Taylor Swift sang ‘We are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ at the 2013 Grammy Awards, the songstress can only have been thinking of Harry Styles. (Her rendition of the line, ‘Babe, I still love you,’ in a British accent was more than enough to stir up a tabloid frenzy). Yet, with rumors of a final ‘make or break holiday’ on the horizon, who knows what the future holds for ‘Haylor’ – indisputably the most intriguing on-off couple in teen Hollywood in 2013. A similarly thrilling buzz surrounds Harry’s future career. Of all the One Direction boys, Robbie Williams – the bad-boy vocalist who broke away from Take That at the very height of their fame – singled Harry out as the boy with the magnetic personality to make it on his own. This chapter takes a look at what’s up next for the talented Mr Styles.
