About the Author

Chris Moyles was born in Leeds in 1974. He started out presenting a hospital radio show at the age of 13. In 2003 he achieved his childhood ambition and was given the biggest show on BBC Radio 1, the legendary Breakfast show. In less than 2 years, he had added over a million new listeners and made it the number one show in London for 15-24-year-olds. Something Radio 1 had never achieved before. Currently the show has over 8 million people tuning in each week.

Format: Hardcover
I bought this as a last minute christmas gift for my husband, thinking that the book would be witty and clever! I admit that I don't listen to Radio One so perhaps I should have known better.

My husband received the book well on christmas morning and was looking forward to commencing his read later on that evening. As planned, he sat with his book and proceeded to digest the first few pages. I asked how it was and he answered "it's ok".

When we went to bed I took the book upstairs so that I myself could have a sneaky read. Well, I have never been so disappointed with a book before! The style of writing was childish and unimaginative with very basic sentences and turned potentially exciting stories into dull and boring tales. It turned out that my husband agreed but didn't initially want to hurt my feelings.

I would say that whoever you are, you should not write a book if you don't have the skills to do so. Perhaps Chris should have had a ghost writer after all?

Idiotic, uninformed, arrogant, obnoxious - it's a wonder that a man who's written a book as bad as this could have reached as far as Chris Moyles has done. But that's how it goes. Just because he can talk the talk doesn't mean to say he can write....!

This really is appalling garbage. For my sins I used to work in publishing and wasted much of my life reading atrocious bilge. This takes the biscuit. Shame on all involved.

Format: Hardcover
Thin, obnoxious book by a fat obnoxious man. This bloated mess seems to only have a lust for attention and money, and will do anything to get it. Whoever published this tripe should hang their heads in shame, that they would pay someone for the rights to print this. I mean, he confesses himself he put no thought or effort into 'writing' (should read, narrating to someone else), so why should be spend our time and money reading this.

Truly, reading really should be educational, or entertaining, or artistic. This is none of those three, and should never have seen the light of day. It pains me to think of genuine authors, who cannot be published because the market is saturated with this junk.

And it is you, reader, who is responsible, for actually buying this! I can only imagine this sort of guff will appeal to those of 'below average intelligence', like the man himself.

and if, like me, you are one of the 8 million people who listen to the show every day you probably love him and you'll love this book. I especially like the bit about how Carry On can't exist in Eastenders and the story of his mate who will go anywhere for a pint (I think it's Mitch the voice over man from Live and Kicking!). It reads just the way he talks on the radio, fun and opinionated but he knows how to take the piss out of himself too. I really enjoyed the book and having read it think he'd be great to have a few drinks down the pub with!

I love Chris Moyles, I find him so funny and a right giggle. So i bought the audio version of this book to fill the gaps between podcasts.
Upside quite funny, good bed time story where you could fall asleep listening to it wake up part way through and just pick on on the narrative. He does describe somethings too much and they lose there comedy value. Jonathan Ross is better at telling people about this home life and keep you hooked and awake, in my opinion.

Overall not a bad gap filler for when your in between books or doing somethig that needs little concentration. - Dont sit down with this and a cuppa expecting to be wowed. Its good but not Podcast good.
