Publisher: Random House UK

Duration: 3 hours 0 minutes
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 an extraordinary ten stone in nine months, his autobiography contains all the intimacy, wit and warmth we've come to know and love him for.
