I bought this book for myself around Christmas as a treat, from the advertising I saw for it it looked like this would be a fun insight into one of the biggest popstars.  The book alternates from more or less the present time 2016/2017 and goes back to the early 2000’s with some mentions of Robbie’s early career in Take That.

I thought that the book would be more structured then it turned out to be, the timeline was going back and forth and there was no real chapter seperations.  For me this made the book a bit difficult to follow and I couldn’t track where in time the biographer was.

Whilst there was some funny insights, the biogrpahy did unveil more of an anxiety ridden guy who doesn’t deal well with praise but also can’t live without the singing / songwriting.  It gave a glimpse into his family life and the way in which he writes songs which was probably the most fascinating part for me.

I did enjoy the book but not as much as I think I would had it been a structured biography with a clear straight forward timeline.  As much as I love Robbie I think this one is better for those diehard Robbie fans, otherwise sadly I think it’s better left under the coffee table.

An intimate, funny and frank account of the moments behind the music, of the truth behind the headlines and of the fascinatingly complicated man behind the imperious entertainer, Reveal is Robbie Williams as you've never seen him before.

More than twelve years ago, Robbie Williams and Chris Heath published a ground-breaking memoir, Feel, about Robert P. Williams' rise to fame; a book that was met with worldwide acclaim, from critics and fans alike.

Since that time, Robbie has released six solo albums, reunited with his old band Take That and, in the wake of his twelfth UK number-one album, has returned to the stage with a sold-out run at Wembley Stadium.

In Reveal, bestselling author Chris Heath has been working closely with Robbie for many years to create a personal and raw account of fame, fortune, family and music; a vivid and detailed story of the real highs and lows as Robbie has found his way forward, that is unprecedented in its intimacy and honesty.

Long-awaited by millions, Reveal is the uncensored and compelling portrait of the man as you've never seen him before.
