Overview

Robert Peter Williams was a sixteen-year-old selling double glazing when he auditioned for a new boy band which became Take That. Twenty years later he is one of the most popular entertainers Britain has ever produced: he has recorded eight number one albums in the UK and he sold 1.6 million tickets for his 2006 world tour in a day. The most successful artist in the history of The Brits, Robbie was given a Lifetime Achievement Award one day before his 36thbirthday in 2010.

The UK's leading celebrity biographer Sean Smith has followed Robbie's remarkable journey from the unpromising streets of Stoke-on-Trent to the millionaire's playground of Beverly Hills and discovered a vulnerable, funny, gifted and deeply complex man. Using new research and interviews, Sean Smith reveals there is far more to being Rob than just being Robbie Williams, superstar.

Robbie's roller coaster story will astonish you. Sean Smith's heart-warming account of his life is the unmissable show business book of the year.
