Anything Goes traces John's life from his Glaswegian
childhood and American adolescence, this no-holds-barred insight into the
career of a multi-talented star includes his first big break (when he
triumphed in an Anything Goes open casting to star opposite theatre legend

The Producers: and his current mainstream appeal as the hottest talent
on the BBC.
Anything Goes, read by John Barrowman, was written
in collaboration with his sister Carole E. Barrowman.
