This is the best oasis book i've read by a mile. I'm a fan, so i've read a few, but this is easily the most interesting. Noel, especially, gets a right hard time from his father. Lot's of kids who grew up in council estates can relate to this and other stories. It's good to see a couple of normal geezers doing well for themselves.

You don't have to like Oasis to read this book, you just need to be human. I felt identified with many things the author tell; reading this book made me understand that everyone suffers but we need to wait for our reward. It's a great book;there's some comments the author said about himself and his brothers that I don't like, but anyway, everyone knows he wrote this book for money. It's the first book in English that I read completely, from the first to the last page(and don't like to read in English), so tell me if it's not excellent!

A very nice piece of work from someone who clearly knows what he's writing about. He tells an amazing story of his family, and how his two younger brothers made good. A father from Hell, a long-suffering mother, three abused children. Not only is it a testament to the brothers' strength of character that they managed to survive, it gives the credit where it's
due--to an inspiring mother who triumphed over the odds against her and nurtured genius.

In Paul Gallagher's (older brother of Liam and Noel Gallagher of 'best band in the world', Oasis) book, Brothers From Childhood To Oasis, he describes the horrors of growing up with a neglectful, alcoholic father and the fame and drive to prove yourself that comes from such a relationship. It's a moving and touching story of two young men who triumphed over a broken family life to pursue their dreams - and made it, big time.

This is really pathetic, the sheer lack of substance is mind numbing. It's completely cliched with terrible barroom humour. The author's admittance at the beginning that he is actually cashing in on his brothers' success only serves to remove any empathy that the reader may have had.
You've heard it all a hundred times before, dont bother lining his pockets any more.

This is my favorite non-fiction book. It had been years since I devoured a book but I couldn't stop myself from reading this. Not only does it have A LOT of unique information about Oasis, it actually goes into great detail.

The first part of the book is about their mother trying to raise the three brothers and it's quite heartbreaking. The rest is of the book is about Rock Stardom which is a lot of fun to read, so the book ends up balancing itself.

Overall this is a must read for any real Oasis fan.
