Gary Barlow is now one of the most successful British musicians and songwriters of all time, but fifteen years ago, as he himself admits, he hit rock bottom - he was out of shape, out of work and depressed.
Faced with an underperforming solo career, tireless media taunts and the other the cruel twists of fate that musical stardom can throw at you, Gary turned to food. For nine years, he went on diets and fought with himself before eventually asking a doctor what the 'cure' for obesity was. That was when it sunk in that he would have to be the one to change his life dramatically.
So how did he go from an obese and out-of-work pop icon, to becoming a superstar of music and TV and an accomplished musical songwriter and producer who is full of vitality, fitter, happier and more successful than ever before?
In this extraordinarily honest memoir, Gary tells of his journey back to professional success, as well as mental and physical health. From returning with a critically and commercially successful Take That and reigniting his own legendary song-writing career, to overcoming his weight problems and crippling obsession with food, and going beyond a recorded music career to forge a career on TV with The X Factor and Let It Shine, this is the story of how Gary found balance in both his personal and professional life.
A Better Me is a remarkably frank account of Gary's life as he battled with his demons, endured personal tragedy, and staged one of the most thrilling professional comebacks in decades. In his warm, witty and authentic voice, Gary recounts his story with compelling insight, captivating sincerity and a human side that people rarely see.
Here is one of the UK's most beloved pop stars, more open, honest and raw than ever before.
