I really enjoyed reading this ! Simon Napier- Bell is quite the witty writer . I bought it on recommendation from a fellow George Michael fan and there were plenty of interesting stories about GM and his time with Wham !

In his latest book, I'M COMING TO TAKE YOU TO LUNCH, Simon Napier-Bell takes the reader on a fascinating whistle-stop tour of the dubious world of pop-star management with glimpses into the even shadier lifestyle of Napier-Bell himself. The book documents a chronology of events leading up to Wham's appearance, inluding the backstage promotion by the author, to make true his pledge of making them the biggest act in the world. This all leads up to their historic performance as the first western pop act to play in China.

He captures with great accuracy the incestuous sui-generis nature of doing business in China in the early 80s, everybody seeming to know everyone else's business and elbowing into every deal going.

Napier-Bell balances the pitch of his story-telling between a tone of 'catty' and insightful and sensitive making the book eminently readable with a nice narrative flow.. Recommended to anyone with an interest in pop-culture, public-relations or just plain hype - those with an understanding of Asia will undoubtably recognise stereotypical characters amongst those depicted.

I had never heard of this author. The book is delightfully fun and easy to read.

For me, music began in the Fifties and ended after the Sixties, so I could not care less about George Michael or Wham!

Reading about Napier-Bell's life is fascinating. I live in Thailand, too, so I hope to meet the gentleman.
