Format: Paperback
I ordered this book as a present for my husband as he loves Piers Morgan and is an avid follower of his Mail on Sunday column, he has also read all his previous books.

When I saw Piers had a 'new book' released, I thought great, perfect as a present and promptly ordered it, only to discover when it arrived that it wasn't a new book at all but a re-release of a previous book with diary entries from 2006-2008 - hardly relevant! Partly my fault for not looking into it - sorely disappointed.

Please dont buy if you have already got the previous books, shame on you Piers!!

P.S. the only reason I am giving this 1 star is because it wont let me give 0

By Nick Brett TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 16 July 2010
Format: Paperback
Piers Morgan, ex tabloid editor has re-invented himself as a talent show judge, celebrity and interviewer. This book publishes his diaries from 2006-2008, and much of the content has already been published in the UK's Mail on Sunday.
Morgan is a guy that people love to hate, this originated from his aggressive style as editor of The Mirror, but he now plays on that reputation to be a 'bad guy', but reading this book will make you jealous of his lifestyle and friends, but I suspect you will like him a little bit more.
The book is part gossip and lifestyle about the celebrities he meets, a smattering of the interviews he has done for GQ Magazine and his views on the world, politics and America at the time Obama came to prominence as a Presidential candidate.
Now, I am not going to pretend this is deep stuff, but some of it is deeper then you might think, don't forget Morgan is a journalist and certainly no fool. Other reviewers here have mentioned most of the content is not fresh (true) and not enjoyed the views on America and Obama, but I still think this is a very entertaining package. The author does not take himself too seriously while obviously having the time of his life. There is a self awareness that is both refreshing and amusing and he shares many laugh out loud moments. I actually enjoyed his view on America and his perceptive views on what makes America tick and how he came to understand and become fond of a country that he initially considered brash and arrogant.
So this is a little more then celebrity gossip as the true journalist does shine through on more then one occasion. This is entertaining stuff.

I have read only one previous book by the author, so, unlike some other reviewers, was not disappointed that this collection of diary entries is said to be an edited version of what has been previously released. I judged it as it stands, on its own meritsas a read.

Morgan is now a British and American TV star, judging the sort of talent shows like America's Got Talent and The X Factor of which I only heard of fairly recently (and I do not believe Gordon Brown who is said, in this book, to watch one of these. Rubbish, surely (gulp!...he was the Prime Minister for God's sake!...and he watches that c**p?).

Morgan does not mince words yet I have not read that any oof those mentionned in the book have sued, despite the partly libellous content. There again, some of what he says about people would be regarded legally as not libellous because "mere vulgar insult". Most of those whom he castigates are those whom I myself dislike (albeit at a distance, having not met or even seen close-up most of them): Jeremy Clarkson; Kate Moss; Cherie Blair ("grasping, rude, Scouse banshee"); George Osborne (ex-cocaine abuser, he pretty much said directly in a previous diary); David Cameron (ditto re. the cocaine abuse; also thought to be "out of his depth" and who "does not understand the economic problems" etc) and who is plainly thought unfit for office --I agree!-- even as compared with that facile little bully, Osborne; Cameron also called a "smooth-faced, affable, Old Etonian snake-oil salesman"). If only people had listened! Having said that, Morgan seems enamoured of Gordon Brown and, by implication, The Party Formerly Known As Labour, which makes me question Morgan's political, as distinct from journalistic, nose.

A wonderful diary. Love him or hate him, Piers Morgan has a talent for telling it as it really is. I found the whole book interesting, informative but above all else very, very funny.

Having read his previous 2 diary style books, I had to pre-order this one too and devoured it in a couple of days.

These books are so addictive. The circles that Piers moves in and the way he commentates are always refreshing and he's not afraid to say what he thinks despite bumping into the same people he's written about (often negatively) in previous volumes. You have to admire his integrity!! Of course, he's opinionated and arrogant, that's a given. It's also why I buy these books and would expect nothing less. He's a massive name dropper, but what names they are! And I would do exactly the same. He's obviously loving every second of his life and who can blame him.

Keep on writing Piers!!!

I've read 2 of Piers Morgan's books and thoroughly enjoyed all of them. They are deliciously indiscreet and always make me laugh.

I love his wit, the gossip and how he's happy to reveal that he doesn't always come out of a conversation or situation looking good, or at times very intelligent either. Silmilarly there are points where he shows in this book in particular, that whilst he is really rather egotistical, underneath he is quite aware of what matters most in life.

If you liked his others, this one is just as good - though in my opinion, much funnier than The Insider and Don't You Know Who I Am, and brings you up to date on his latest(mis)adventures.

Yes there are several entries on the Obama campaign but it didn't spoil the enjoyment for me and seemed quite relevant to the wider picture of what was going on whilst he was over there, and the impending credit crunch. It all tied in together really.

Amusing, interesting, gossipy, heartfelt in places and highly entertaining. I hope he continues to publish similar titles.
