'Witty and outrageous' – Mail on Sunday

When he was a boy growing up in sixties London, the 'pink sheep' of his working-class Irish Catholic family, George Alan O'Dowd wanted to be like Shirley Bassey. He got a lot more than he bargained for.

When new wave arrived, Boy George became a star. As the glamorous, androgenous lead singer of Culture Club, he became a media darling and pop icon, winning Grammys and BRIT Awards.

And then came drugs, addiction and a spectacular fall from grace.

In Take it Like a Man, George tells the story of the crazy highs and desperate lows – from his relationship with Culture Club's Jon Moss and friendship with Fat Tony, hilarious encounters with stars like Michael Jackson, Diana Ross and George Michael, and the family struggles, the despair of withdrawal and the journey back to health and sobriety.

Told in his own intimate, hilarious style, this a racy, pacy page-turner from a music legend.

Candid and entertaining . . . his public image was wildly at odds with his private self, the self that was living fabulously and wildly If there's another book that can top it for bitchiness, sex, glamour, fame and heartache, then Jackie Collins must be the author The book is good-humoured and often very funny, even about the most harrowing days of his drug addiction Touchingly, at the centre of this creation, you find an insecure bruiser of a guy, built like a bricklayer and yet cooler than any royal blue-blood. You'll not read a more astonishing music biography this year A fascinating insight into the intolerable pressures and temptations of stardom Required reading
