Annotation

With his infectious energy and charisma, Gok Wan has an incredible gift of making women feel more confident within themselves - but it's not until you read his own inspirational story that you find out where he got that gift from.

Publisher Description

In a short space of time, Gok Wan s infectious energy and charisma have made him an essential and much-loved part of Britain s TV landscape. He dominates the Channel 4 schedules with no less than three shows- How to Look Good Naked, Gok s Fashion Fix and Miss Naked Beauty, has published bestselling style guides to go with them, and he is also a regular presenter on The TV Book Club. Gok has an amazing ability to make us feel wonderful about ourselves, but it s not until you read his own story that you learn where he got that gift from. Bullied and tormented both at school and on the housing estate where he grew up, Gok bounced back to become first a stylist to the stars and then every woman s best friend. Whether he s telling us about his loving, larger-than-life family or how he reinvented himself at the age of 20 by losing a miraculous ten stone in nine months, his autobiography contains all the intimacy, wit and warmth we ve come to know and love him for.

Review

"As funny as it is moving, Gok's inspirational story is a fab read " Closer "It's the autobiography we've all been waiting for - the incredible story of how a 20st Chinese kid from a housing estate grew up to become a fashion guru ... this intimate memoir is full of insights about bullying, fashion and celebrity. Witty, honest and inspirational! " Woman's Own "A revealing and unglitzy autobiography, about being a podgy, spotty teenager in Leicester, feeling out of place and out of luck and without much hope for a better future ... honest and moving" -- Susan Hill Spectator "Told with the wit and warmth we know and love him for" Best "Immensely readable, touching and at times funny" Sunday Express
