Product Description

Review

"He is the King of Kiss 'n' tell, the Guru of Gossip . . . Like many of the stories he purveys, Clifford's own is a bit of a romp." (Express)

"Suburban sex parties, affairs and secret deals with call-girls and brothel madams, Max Clifford has enough juicy gossip to make your eyes pop out. Only this time it's about him." (Mirror)

"If you liked Piers Morgan's The Insider, you'll love this from the daddy of tabloid splashes." (Tatler)

From the Publisher

Max has become a symbol for our age, one of the most influential figures in today's society and a household name, frequently called upon by the media to pass judgement on celebrity matters. More often than not Max brilliantly silences radio and TV audiences by putting in perspective the problem of celebrities misbehaving – a recent example being his views on Kate Moss’s behaviour. Max more than anyone understands the pact that people make when they become celebrities and the responsibilities that they have to their public. But nowadays these are very complex issues and Max serves a purpose in guiding these people through the various minefields and by making himself available to the media, he tries to clarify the issues that these people have to grapple with. However normally only short sound bites broadcast his message and his motives are often misconstrued, sometimes deliberately, and that is one of the main reasons Max decided to write a book. The other reason was Angela Levin; and Max astutely recognised that he could search forever and find no more trusty observer and chronicler than Angela. During the course of writing this wonderful, entertaining and I believe important book she became, if you will, a female Boswell to Max’s Samuel Johnson.

This promises much but delivers very little indeed. Clifford prides himself on the stories he suppresses as much as those he helps expose, so any readers hoping to pick up the real inside story will be sorely disappointed. What they will get is an endless stream of tales about how Max helps elderly neighbours, gives to charity, and never misses a chance to polish his halo. It gets to the point when you realise this is a book designed not to tell you what the man is really like but to reshape his own image. Clifford is undoubtedly a skilled operator but it's hard to see how he thought anyone would believe that this book tells the whole story. If he'd been more honest about his own private life perhaps the book would have made a more interesting read. As it stands, it's just a gushing PR spin job on the man himself.

I can't believe I spent two days of my life reading this drivel. There was nothing really new or revealing in this book and does not live up to its promise. It's basically a long-winded book just praising Max Clifford, as told by Max Clifford. He never stops bumming himself up and is eager to go on and on and on about all his 'secret' charity work. He also is at pains to tell his readers about his extra-marital affairs. Why I do not know as he just comes across as a total sleaze. I felt very sorry for his wife who passed away before this book came out. She seems to have been a lovely woman. Also, his poor daughter seems to have had a very rough time with her illness and all her operations. These two women both came across well in the book. It's a pity I can't say the same for the shamless, self-pronoting Max Clifford. Give this one a miss!

Having just finished 'The Insider', I was expecting more from this book. Instead, I thought it was a nothing-we-didnt-already-know overview of some major celebrity scandals and Max's involvement.
Clifford is undoubtedly a 'likeable rogue', but I wonder if he's trying to reshape his own image, into 'Clifford: Great Humanitarian', hence why he talks so much about his charity work. I'm sure the charities appreciate his help, but there's something slightly self-congratulatory about a person who's always telling you exactly how much they've given away this year.
All in all, a disappointing read. A nice insight into the man and some genuinely moving moments when he talks of how he cared for his sick daughter and wife. But, overall, not a book I would recommend.

I was really looking forward to this book and really wanted to like it as like other reviewers I had enjoyed Piers Morgans books that `spill the beans` on the celebrity ego mentalists. With Max Clifford`s book I was left wondering why he had bothered, most of the book is old news, the rest unless you are interested in the man rather than the celebrity world gives little away. He talks in a generic tones about scandals and situations without naming the individuals,so much so he could have basically made up a lot of it which I was left with the opinion he had!. I would not recommend this book, I think he should do a bit of PR work on himself as I was left with a lower opinion of the man I once though was unfairly characterised by the very same media he claims to influence.

This is one of the worst books I have ever read! A badly written love letter to Max Clifford. Ooh Max, you're just amazing! Max is great at this, Max is great at that, Max gives to this charity, Max gives to that charity (but keep it under your hat. Not!). Bleurgh! Couldn't be bothered finishing it, it was that dull.

If I hadn't been stuck in a travel nightmare, I would never have finished this book. The ghost "writer" is sychophantic and repetitive. The story is "Good old Max, bit unconventional, but hey he loves his family. Whilst loving quite a few people who are not in his family - mainly horzontally." With variations on a theme, this is repeated ad nauseam.
I was left with the impression that what good he has done (and at one level you cannot condemn giving to charity) was done as much because it made him feel good, and made him look good to those he drew in, rather than for what it achieved for the charity or the people themselves.

If this is unfair, it is through the writing and presentation, which really is awful. If I were seeking a publicist, this demonstration of skill in selection would have me looking elsewhere. Fortunately, or otherwise, I have no secrets to hide nor stories to tell, (or sell), so won't be coming across Mr. Clifford professionally, to see if he is as good as he says. And if he is a good as he says, he should stick to the day job, because sponsoring good books is a talent he does not have.

It turns out there's massive gaps in what the book tells us as well... I'm sure that Max has a very good reason for that.

Probably one of the worst autobiographies I have ever read. Boring, self congratulatory and very irritating the way it switches between Max himself writing and whoever the other person is writing (can't even be bothered to go and look up her name). Can't believe that someone who appears so eloquent on television can put his name to such drivel. A real disappointment, don't think I can even be bothered to finish it.
