Waterstones Says

An expert in coaxing his subjects to open up about themselves (frequently without their knowledge!), Louis Theroux is still something of an enigma to his viewing public. For the first time, the master interrogator reveals what makes him tick, the challenges he has faced and what he really thought of those he has interviewed. A must-read book for the autumn.

Signed Edition

In 1994 fledgling journalist Louis Theroux was given a one-off gig on Michael Moore's TV Nation, presenting a segment on apocalyptic religious sects. Gawky, socially awkward and totally unqualified, his first reaction to this exciting opportunity was panic. But he'd always been drawn to off-beat characters, so maybe his enthusiasm would carry the day. Or, you know, maybe it wouldn't...

In Gotta Get Theroux This, Louis takes the reader on a joyous journey through his life and unexpectedly successful career. Nervously accepting the BBC's offer of his own series, he went on to create an award-winning documentary style that has seen him immersed in worlds as diverse as racist US militias and secretive pro-wrestlers, the violent gangs of Johannesburg and extreme drinkers in London.

Arguably his biggest challenge was corralling celebrities in his When Louis Met series, with Jimmy Savile proving most elusive. Blindsided when the revelations about Savile came to light, Louis was to reflect again on the nature of evil he had spent decades uncovering.

Filled with wry observation, larger-than-life characters, and self-deprecating humour, this is Louis at his insightful and honest best.
