From his Glaswegian childhood and American adolescence to his starring role in the Doctor Who spinoff Torchwood, this memoir traces the life and career of actor John Barrowman. John made a name for himself with remarkable West End achievements, including an Olivier Award nomination and success in the movies The Producers and De-Lovely. Television success was also assured when Torchwood won a Best Drama BAFTA. John also lays bare his personal life: his emigration as a child, coming out to his family, turning down a job at Disney, and his civil partnership with long-term partner Scott Gill. Revelatory and insightful, told with real heart and characteristic Barrowman charm, this is a wonderful tale of how one boy achieved his dreams.

John Barrowman is my new favorite human whom I haven't met yet. He is well read, he sings, he acts, he loves musical theater, and he and his partner visit historical sites on vacations.
He has been the Beast/Prince for Beauty and the Beadt and the Prince in Cinderella on Broadway/West End. He is also Captain Jack Harkness on TorchWood a spinoff of Doctor Who.
I read his first autobiography in two days, and I was throughly entertained, touched, and impressed with his intellect. Several times I laughed out loud.
If I ever saw him, he would be one I would have to hold a conversation with him regardless of my introvert state.
