Choir of Hard Knocks : First it was a hit TV show, then a best-selling CD, and now it's a book. The members of the Choir of Hard Knocks have done it tough - fighting addiction, mental illness and severe hardship. With the help of musical director Jonathon Welch, himself a former Opera Australia tenor, they have brought some order to their disordered lives, and found voices where society had given them none. With contributions from Jonathon Welch and Jimmy Barnes, among others, and brimful of thoughts, feelings, poetry and stories form the choir members themselves, this book is as uplifting as it is inspirational, and shows why this knockabout gang of choristers has won hearts all around Australia.
