THE SEQUEL TO THE NUMBER 1 BESTSELLER WORKING CLASS BOY It's a life too big and a story too extraordinary for just one book. 

Jimmy Barnes has lived many lives - from Glaswegian migrant kid to iconic front man, from solo superstar to proud father of his own musical clan. In this hugely anticipated sequel to his critically acclaimed bestseller, Working Class Boy, Jimmy picks up the story of his life as he leaves Adelaide in the back of an old truck with a then unknown band called Cold Chisel. 

A spellbinding and searingly honest reflection on success, fame and addiction; this self-penned memoir reveals how Jimmy Barnes used the fuel of childhood trauma to ignite and propel Australia's greatest rock'n'roll story. But beyond the combustible merry-go-round of fame, drugs and rehab, across the Cold Chisel, solo and soul years - this is a story about how it's never too late to try and put things right.


And so the story continues - there are times that Jimmy comes close to self destructing - close to having the band members take off in 4 different directions - close to losing everything good that touches him.

If you loved the first book - you will love this one too .. it's honest and raw - at times it's downright brutal feeling the stumbles, but watching the climb back up to make things right.

Now both of these bookies have sold well over 500,000 - and this is not the end of books from Jimmy. There is another one called Killing Time : Short Stories from the Long Road Home

Also a Cook Book and a Kids Book - one heck of a guy ....
