A better me, the official autobiography, Gary Barlow
Cover
Author: Barlow, Gary
Publication year: 2018
Language: English
Classification: 920 BAR
ISBN: 9781911600978
Notes:
Gary Barlow is 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, depressed. Food for him had become an addiction, a means not only of comfort but almost of self-medication as he grappled with the cruel twists of fate of musical stardom. In 2003, as he struggled with the disappointment of an underperforming solo career alongside the tireless media taunts; Gary turned to food. Relentlessly. In the space of nine years he had been on 20 diets in the hopes of a resolution to all his woes. In his extraordinarily honest memoir 'A Better Me,' Gary tells of his journey back to professional success and mental and physical health.

One never knows of course, but it sounds like his authentic voice. A good read if you are a Take That fan, although very much from Gary's perspective as you would expect.
