'George Formby was arguably Britain's most successful popular entertainer ever and this volume by Sue Smart and Richard Bothway Howard more than does its subject justice. Meticulously researched and filled with material direct from Formby's family, this biography puts to rest many of the rumours, half-truths and gossip surrounding George and Beryl and once again reminds us of his remarkable achievements.

'This book will appeal not just to the Formby fraternity, but also to anybody interested in the history of light entertainment and popular culture in the 20th century, and it will be around for a long time as the "must have" biography of the lad from Wigan'. - Dr CP Lee, Head of Film Studies, University of Salford

'In this major new biography Smart and Bothway Howard cast a welcome, fresh light on the lives of the two great George Formbys (Senior and Junior). Meticulously researched, using previously unpublished sources, It's Turned Out Nice Again! debunks the many tedious cliches and myths that have grown around the accounts of Formby's life, career and relationships, painting in their place a compelling portrait of a young man reluctantly thrown into the limelight, and his rise to become a showbusiness legend. The book also tells fascinating new stories from the life and times of his father, music hall star George Formby Senior. A must for all lovers of Formby'. - Michael Daly,
