Now, at last, Frank tells the story of how he made it - the story of an overnight success that had taken a decade of dedication and determination to achieve. Ambition was born on a makeshift stage in an Australian bush village, was pursued through the backwoods of 1950s Australian showbiz and blossomed into success on the stages of the Antipodes and the first flickering screens of Australian TV. Then, at the height of his fame, Frank made the brave decision to give it all up. He packed his bags and flew to England, to start all over again. The prize was great, but the odds stacked against him were high. Battling heartache, disappointment and stiff opposition, he finally won through - and how! With a gigantic number one hit that catapulted him to fame as a pop idol! Narrated in Franks own individual, easy-flowing way, his irrepressible sense of humour shines through in a story packed with nostalgic glimpses of an English and Australian childhood, hilarious anecdotes, honest disclosures of painful personal tragedies and a generous peppering of star names, from Cliff Richard to the Beatles.
