Beautiful. Not your usual biography - as far as Robbie and Chris Heath are concerned, that's what Feel is for. This book is more an anecdotes-by-pictures kind of book. Many, many pictures, and Robbie comments on all of them. Pics from the last 20 years - Pics that are widely known, pics that are rare, pics never seen before. Public and private pics; Robbie @ Take That, Robbie solo, Robbie with friends, family, celebs, his dogs, Robbie, fully bearded, during his time out. It's all in here, all pr ...more

I should really make my confession here and now: I really like Robbie Williams, so of course I was going to buy this book. I have read Feel (his autobiography released some years ago) and thoroughly enjoyed it. What’s not to like about a man who says things like ‘I want to learn how to play the Effexor’? (Like most medical jokes, that one is not even remotely funny).

You Know Me is predominantly a photographic book of the first twenty (yes, twenty!) years of Robbie’s career from Take That to sol
Ich würde mich wirklich nicht als großen Robbie Williams Fan bezeichnen, aber ich liebe Biographien und irgendwie hat mich schon immer fasziniert, wie aus dem Boygroup-Robbie der megaerfolgreiche Solo-Robbie geworden ist. Nicht zu vergessen die Drogen-Eskapen zwischendurch und sein inzwischen sesshaftes Leben mit seiner Frau Ayda.
Die Biographie war etwas ungewöhnlich, da zum Großteil Bilder mit Anekdoten aus Robbies Leben versehen wurden. Es war also nur teilweise eine chronologische Abfolge, ab
Great to see how he's come through. Chris Heath has captured Rob's particular style of speech just so.

I have been a Robbie Williams fan for over 20 years now, so it was really a suprise that I got this book as a belated birthday present last week and had not read it. My friend was pleased, of course.

Needless to say, I quickly finished it (it's mostly about the pictures) and enjoyed the photo safari through the 20 years of Mister Williams thoroughly. His comments are quite honest, sometimes a bit disturbing and often hilarious. Many things are already known to long time fans like me, but still, n
mehr Bildband als Buch aber trotzdem toll. Robbie halt.
I am a big Robbie Williams fan for half of my life, so this book was a must. And I really liked it. You get to see lots of pictures from Rob's life and Chris Heath wrote down what Rob told ihm about the pictures. So it's the closest to "watching pictures with Rob" you'll get as a fan.
It is what it is, a picture book. It's nothing like Chris Heath's original fly on the wall book Feel, but it does offer a small insight into an up to date Robbie so for that fact alone, if you're a Robbie fan, it's worth getting.

Otherwise don't bother.
Not much of a story to b honest but the amazing pics make it worth while a must for robbie fans
