    One thought on “Lucky”

    1. Having seen Prof Green on lip sync challenge and watched all of his documentaries about difficult topics such as homelessness, drug use and depression. I thought he seemed like a genuine and interesting person, this biography reinforced that view. Although I'm not a massive fan of rap or hiphop I do love a true life rags to riches story of hard graft that ultimately leads to the reward. Although he hasn't always been a prefect angel he makes no excuses for his behaviour and learns from past mist [...]

    2. I watched him on Sunday brunch talk about the book and the documentaries. I hadn't really listened to his music much but I thought he spoke with a passion and interest and so read the book. A really great read. I love how a book lets you get into someone's lives. He is right there is a stereotype about tattooed rappers. And there are all rubbish. What a really genuine guy who has had some tough times but usually manages to see the good side. It inspired me to go back and listen to more of his mu [...]

    3. I like Prof Green's music and recently caught a couple of documentaries he did on both homelessness and suicide / depression so I was interested to read his story. Delves very deeply into his music and I like many of the artists mentioned so this was of added interest to me. He also came from a council flat in East London as did I so I did feel connected. He makes no bones about his past, has a honest charm about him and this made for good reading.

    4. This review can also be found at FadedTulipsI really do like Professor Green, I think he’s funny and I like his music so when I saw that his autobiography was on offer on amazon for £1.19 I quickly snapped it up.I’m pretty sure I read this in about three hours and it really was so good. Pro Green doesn’t really shy away from anything and tells things how they are. He especially doesn’t shy away from telling us about how things were growing up in Hackney and his relationship with his fat [...]

    5. I quite like reading books about people I think I 'know' because the gutter press tell us all about their lives and what they're up to. I'd thus heard about Professor Green through his beautiful wife, Mille, as they've become good fodder for the paparazzi. Also, I'd seen a couple of TV documentaries that PG had presented on the TV related to the suicide of his father and how that had affected him and his own mental health so thought that this would be interesting. I wasn't expecting a fantastica [...]

    6. Lucky is the life of Professor Green a.k.a Stephen Paul Manderson, a English Hip-Hop artist. The first half of the book, mainly describes his personal life and struggles living in London, touching upon the negative relationship between his parents and in the end, he grew up with his nan. The second half could almost be a behind-the-scenes book, often talking about parties and accidents with the rapper. The book goes in deep with a daunting time, when his father unfortunately committed suicide an [...]

    7. Now this review is likely to be very bias seeing as professor green is one of my biggest idols and I simply love him! Reading this book just made me so happy! I laughed, I cried, I got annoyed and everything else in between!I feel like I know Stephen so much more as a person and now that I have a much bigger insight on his life before fame and on his journey, I feel as though I can relate to him a lot more! Some of what he said really resonated with me and I took a lot from his book!All I want t [...]

    8. Worth a readI know nothing about rap or HipHop and I still found this an engaging and interesting read. He comes across as a pretty decent bloke, who works hard and enjoys his music.

    9. I've been a fan for a good few years and really admire that he helps raise awareness of depression and suicide so wanted to read more. It's an entertaining book and my first experience of a paperback book having digital content using a free app. Would recommend it to anyone, fan or not.

    10. Quite an interesting autobiography. Not that interested in the rapping and musical related sections but liked learning more about Professor Greens personal life and childhood

    11. Not a bad read. Very fun having the video content but not sure the videos particularly enhanced the content but always good to have a celebrity insight!

    12. enjoyed some parts just felt it got slightly boring, but was interesting in places to see what he has done in his life

    13. A great readI would definitely recommend to a friend.Great insight in to his life and the starting of his career. Could read over and over.
