What is a Buseyism? I take the letters that spell a word to create a definition for the word in the truth of its deeper, dimensional meaning. I weave in my personal anecdotes along with my musings on how I live life successfully according to my experiences. Who am I, a genius, a crazy madman, to give advice? This is not advice. I am sharing the life lessons I learned while surviving the ups and downs of almost 50 years in Hollywood, a near fatal motorcycle accident, a drug overdose, two divorces, bankruptcy and cancer in the middle of my face.

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. Best-selling 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.

excellent read. I'm normally put off if the biography is not read by the author. you know. If they can't be bothered to read it, then why should I. well I kind of went out on a limb with this one. or to be honest, I was bored an just clicked on this as I couldn't be bothered searching anymore.
I'm glad I did. excellent read, everything you'd expect. funny, honest and informative. definitely gives you a different view of robbie. I have met him a couple of times an kind of knew of him, with coming from the same home town it's hard not to. But there's alot I didn't know either. Goes into depth into how badly he is affected by all the negative press he receives. the way it's read, is by the author, but the other parts, I.e. robbie, aids, an anyone else that pops up, is read by an imprresionist. But is done very well.
overall good book. only reason it didn't get full stars, was the ending seemed to come pretty abruptly, think sopranos.

In this brave and moving memoir, Corey Feldman is revealing the truth about what his life was like behind the scenes: His is a past that included physical, drug, and sexual abuse, a dysfunctional family from which he was emancipated at age fifteen, three high-profile arrests for drug possession, a nine-month stint in rehab, and a long, slow crawl back to the top of the box office.
