If, like me, you have taken advantage of the information and interviews posted on the internet over the last few years regarding Mr Laurie, you may be a little disappointed with this book. Having just finished reading it, I don't feel that I have learnt very much more about him than I did before. It seems to me that most of the information has been gathered from the internet and padded out a bit, and the only advantage of having this biography is that you have all the information in one place. It isn't very long either at 260 pages (not including appendix), with largish print, wide margins and 2 lots of photos. There are some good photos though, many of which I hadn't seen before.
I may be wrong, but I guess that neither Hugh Laurie, nor anyone who knows him had any direct involvement in the writing of this book and the direct personal interview with family or friends (or even the subject himself) for the specific purpose of the book, would have added tremendous value and brought this work above that of Wikipedia and suchlike.
Perhaps one day, Hugh Laurie may see fit to write his own autobiography, or commission someone to do it with full cooperation. If so, I'm sure it will be as interesting as his "colleague" Stephen Fry's autobiographical attempts.
