    DescriptionHow do you make it as a pop star? Why does one boy band make it big and another disappear off the pages of the magazines altogether? Why do girls cost more than boys? And who should you sleep with to get to number one? Packed with scandal and intrigue, Pop Babylon takes you to the dark heart of one of the world's most wicked and secretive industries. It's a world where money talks, bullshit walks and drugs are a way of life. And where talent isn't always at the top of the list of priorities...Tracking a year in the making of a brand-new boy band, "Pop Babylon" is pure, unadulterated reading pleasure - stuffed with stories about pop's most demanding divas, which jocks do shock and just how long you can chop a line of cocaine. Disgraceful, revelatory and great down-and-dirty fun, it's essential reading for anyone who wants to know what it really takes nowadays to be top of the pops.

    Review quote
    "Pop Babylon is a true guilty pleasure, leaving readers both appalled and longing for more. It's not the deepest book you'll ever read, but who wants Balzac on the beach?" City Am "A Babylonian expose of the excesses of the music industry should be required reading for all X Factor wannabes" Evening Standard
