Cliff Richard has been part of the British music scene for 50 years and in this story of his life so far we find out how he has endured when many others have fallen by the way side. This will be a must for any Cliff fans, with his own personal stories and pictures, some of which are published here for the very first time. With a fascinating and eventful life like this it will be interesting reading, whether you regard him as a national treasure or not.

Synopsis

My Life, My Way by Cliff Richard, Penny Junor

Sir Cliff Richard OBE is the biggest-selling artist of all time, selling over 250 million records around the world since he burst onto the music scene in 1958. But how has he kept his appeal all these years? In a world fuelled by drink, sex and drugs, he is perennially attractive without any of those things that keep other singers' profiles high. Now, working with the highly acclaimed biographer and journalist, Penny Junor, Cliff is going to talk freely and frankly about what it is like to be Cliff.

Inspirational, hugely talented, a much-loved household name, his story is extraordinary. Packed with hitherto unseen pictures and untold stories, fascinating memorabilia and a host of unique visual memories, it is a book to read and treasure for the next fifty years.

About the Author

Sir Cliff Richard - singer, actor, businessman - was born in India in 1940 and moved to Britain in 1947. His showbizz career includes starring roles in film and television, and in 1995 he became the first rock star to be knighted.

Penny Junor began her career as an investigative feature journalist, and most recently she ghosted Pattie Boyd's memoir, WONDERFUL TODAY, a number one bestseller.
