i've been a big fan of john nettles for many years, and this book covers his earlier acting years including bergerac. i was a little disappointed that he skipped over his childhood too quickly and lingered over his early theatre acting years instead, as i was hoping to learn more about his youth. but, with that aside, i enjoyed this book very much. john is a well educated man and can keep the reader gripped with his witty tales. i found the cartoon pictures amusing too ! well done john, a good book, i thoroughly enjoyed reading it and recommend it to all fans alike.
