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 36th birthday 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.
'This comes closer than anything else I have read - and believe me I've read quite a bit - to uncovering the man behind the Robbie mask he has taken to wearing.'.....'It's a very enjoyable book to read.' THE SENTINEL
'A fact-packed insight into his early life and his career so far...Sean Smith's account is colourful, revealing and very entertaining. It is both laugh out loud funny and painfully moving.' THE BIG ISSUE
'In his penetrating biography Robbie, Sean Smith does an excellent job in separating the media myth from the man behind the microphone. Robbie is revealed as a mass of contradictions. He is an extrovert with low self-esteem, a lad's lad with a conscience, a womaniser who is searching for a stable relationship. Smith brilliantly reveals the personal demons that drive Robbie to succeed, yet at the same time threaten to bring him down.' DAILY EXPRESS
