Reviews

  • "Part inspirational self-help manual, part business guide, part exploration of how its author - aided by the team around him, given equal voice in the oral history format - transformed himself into the scene's biggest star."

    Alexis Petridis, Guardian, 'Books of the Year'
  • "Charts the ascent of the grime MC... through a panoply of voices. Stormzy is adored."

    Kitty Empire, Observer, 'Books of the Year'
  • "In first-person interviews, the MC's friends and colleagues give their insight on an extraordinary journey so far... In doing so, it shines a light on voices that are often overlooked, in keeping with Stormzy's ethos for his #Merky publishing imprint."

    Rhian Daly, NME, 'Books of the Year'
  • "A very important book... It is truly inspiring to read about the accomplishments of Team Stormzy, realised largely without money or expertise, but with bucketloads of intelligence and hard work."

    Will Gompertz, BBC
  • "An inspirational must-read... Throughout he demonstrates an ambition beyond telling his life story. The book is part of a wider plan to elevate black British culture to where he believes it should be. It's a manual demonstrating how big plans can become realities... Like Stormzy himself, it's a different kind of success."
