Absolutely fantastic book of the ups and downs of Elton's life. I've long known of his music and enjoyed his character and stage outfits. His story and life is outrageous, over the top, but the story is real and from the heart. I laughed and cried. I loved hearing about his wonderful friendships and support he's given to so many famous people behind the scenes too. Both Elton reading the intro and then Taron reading the story were excellent too. It's so animated and I couldn't stop listening! Wish there was more.

Thank you Michelle for sharing your incredible story.

Wonderful book! Michelle tells her story in a raw and real way. Enjoyed it thoroughly and had to rewind some parts so I could write down quotes of her wisdom! Her journey hasn’t been easy but she reflects in such a wonderfully detailed and measured way on all the ups, downs or challenges.

One of my favourite quotes...
“Becoming requires equal parts of patience and rigour. Becoming is never giving up on the idea that there’s more growing to be done.”

Highly recommend!

Any additional comments?

After watching Magda on TV for so many years, it's incredibly moving to hear Magda tell her own story with all of the ups and downs she's been through. Highly recommend.

Her voice is calming and measured, yet the story is so raw and emotional. I couldn't stop listening and devoured this in just over a week. The descriptions of her mother and father are so vivid you'll think you know them all by the end.
