9780091938383: Through Thick and Thin: My Autobiography

For the first time in Through Thick and Thin, Gok reveals all about his life changing period. The lessons Gok learned during this time helped him bounce back from a difficult childhood to become a stylist to the stars, every woman’s best friend, and a national treasure. In this intimate memoir Gok tells his full story in his own words. Whether he’s recounting the horrors of childhood bullying or riotous anecdotes about his loving family, behind the scenes in the fashion world or TV shows, Gok’s voice jumps off the page with all the honesty, wit, and warmth for which he is known and loved.

Review:

"As funny as it is moving, Gok's inspiration story is a fab read *****"  —Closer

"It's the autobiography we've all been waiting for - the incredible story of how a 20st Chinese kid from a housing estate grew up to become a fashion guru ... this intimate memoir is full of insights about bullying, fashion and celebrity. Witty, honest and inspirational! *****"  —Woman's Own

"You've got to read it ... wonderful."  —Jane McDonald, author, Loose Women

"A revealing and unglitzy autobiography, about being a podgy, spotty teenager in Leicester, feeling out of place and out of luck and without much hope for a better future ... honest and moving."  —Susan Hill, Spectator

"Immensely readable, touching and at times funny."  —Sunday Express
