Gareth reveals a compelling story. He describes himself as an animateur. As a teacher of entrepreneurship and innovation I view him as a serial entrepreneur. Not an entrepreneur that creates financial wealth, but an entrepreneur who creates social and cultural capital. His story reveals a classical example of an entrepreneur motivated to make a difference, through music education.

This was a nice book but as I hadn't seen the first couple of series it's on about I felt a bit left out. Gareth has a lovely style of writing and the material itself is very endearing and a genuinely pleasant read. Having said this I just think I needed to be more of a fan of the show than I am to fully appreciate it.
Overall it's a nice book that'll look lovely on my shelf but I can't see myself reading again too many times in the near future. Sorry Gareth.

Having watched all of Gareth Malone's Choir series it has been really nice to hear him talk about how the series began and all the behind the scenes trials and tribulations. The style of writing is not brilliant but you can hear Gareth's voice talking. It could also have done with some better proof reading. A good read and I would certainly recommend it .

I enjoyed the book, and as a singer myself I could relate to the trials and tribulations. I didn't watch all of the series but what I did see impressed me. The book was easy to read but the jumping around in time annoyed me and some stories never really got finished.

A very interesting book. I did not watch the tv programmes thinking it wasn't really 'my thing' after reading the book I wished I had!!

What made this book more interesting for me was the thoughts of Gareth Malone about the people that he met along the way as well as how he got involved in each project and how it developed.

Really enjoyed this. Inspiring, warm, interesting and an easy read. Lovely that someone can be so passionate about music without being elitist.
