The hugely popular Gareth Malone recounts the heart-warming stories and transformations behind the award-winning BBC2 series The Choir, including the new series Sing While You Work. For the first time, Gareth reveals everything he has learned from working with so many groups of memorable people, including the record-breaking Military Wives. Gareth was an unknown Choirmaster when he arrived on British TV screens five years ago. Boyish, irrepressible and determined, Gareth took on a collection of kids from the most unlikely comprehensive and turned them into a talented performing choir. This is his memoir of a period in which he transformed the lives of thousands but also gained a lifetime´?¢s worth of experience in human frailty and strength. Written with real joy, emotion and amusement, the twenty chapters each deal with an individual moment ´?¢ both breakthroughs and disasters ´?¢ or an individual character that has contributed to this extraordinary adventure. Whether he is explaining the importance of biscuits or the role of the elderly in a community undertaking, remembering the scrappy kid who never quite delivered or the mother who had most to prove this is an incredibly moving journey. It is his adventure´?¢ and ours. 320 pages
