Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I pre-ordered this book and I now feel totally ripped off. The book is lifeless and dull, filled with well-known facts and quotes taken out of newspaper interviews. The authors have padded the book by giving potted biographies of everyone Martin has worked with over the years making the prose turgid and disrupting the flow of the book. Anything controversial has been glossed over. The overall effect is like eating week old white bread - stale and hard to get through.

I really enjoyed this book. Martin Clunes has become part of our culture, and he is shown dealing sympathetically with our obsession for dogs, a subject close to Martin's heart.
The book does not disappoint, you are lead through Martin's many characters and accomplishments which show the versatility of this very British actor. Gary has grown up and as you follow his career in the book you can see his full potential coming through - he's a really nice bloke, and it shows.
I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.....

Format: Hardcover
Well written & informative.
After reading the book, I felt that I had known Martin Clunes all my life.
There were very candid statements made by Mr. Clunes that revealed a man of principles.
The book rounds out the actor's persona. I finished the book knowing that I wanted to know more about this man in his personal & professional endeavors.
If you're a Doc Martin fan, you will not be disappointed. It is but one piece of the delicious "pie" which is Martin Clunes.
He puts a little bit of himself in each of his characters!!
I gave it: *****...excellent!!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Junius on 25 July 2012
Format: Hardcover
The book is chiefly based on newspaper and magazine quotations from Clunes and isn't very revealing at all, despite a reference on the sleeve to being 'indepth'. There's a reference to Clunes being a bully but this isn't followed up as this is a trot through his TV and film performances, without much critical analysis or comment at all. I suppose it is ok as an overview of his career with a few bits on his not so private life, but that's it. A few typos - Clunes was 29 not 19 in The Russia House and his part in a Morse drama is overlooked.

10 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Linton on 30 April 2010
Format: Hardcover
The large typeface should be a give-away; there is nothing in this book that isn't already well-known. It's one of those laudatory, smiley totally bland publicity exercises - and not particularly well-written either. But, on the plus side - it could be very useful if you have a table with one leg about 2.7cm shorter than the other three.

Format: Paperback
Disappointing. Full of third party quotes taken from other sources with seemingly nothing at all obtained from Martin Clunes direct and no new information beyond what has been reported elsewhere already.
