Format:Hardcover
Once again the unique talent and persona of one of Britain's greatest stars makes for a cracking good read. The amazing Mr Essex gives us another well written and honest insight into his life and passions as he looks back over his long and varied career.

I defy anyone to name a more versatile or successful performer of our times. He writes it as he lives it with integrity and honesty.

It is a refreshing story which avoids the inevitable entourages that are favoured by so many of today's so called celebrities. David Essex has always maintained his dignity and professionalism never taking for granted the success that he has worked so hard to achieve. As a man who usually prefers to keep his private life private David recounts candidly but kindly tales of his many liaisons within the sometimes less than kind entertainment world which has been his stage for over 50 years and in doing so gives warm and genuine credit to those who have worked alongside him.

His natural charisma and humour cannot fail to captivate the reader who will quickly discover his work ethic and absolute professionalism in all genres which endears him to all those he meets at whatever level. As Eddie Moon he has developed the character in his own inimitable style to create a whole new generation of fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars All I hoped it was 21 April 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Really enjoyed reading this book , David Essex seems unpretentious and his talent is obvious . I remember the Godspell era when my sons were teenagers and was charmed then by his appealing good looks and natural charm , When he turned up in Eastenders he proved that he still had 'it' - glad I bought it. As mentioned before he is a true gentleman who has many facets -long may he continue to entertain us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Autobiography:David Essex 27 April 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Always been a fan since the 'Godspell' days so what's not to like.My poor husband took me and two of my daughters and one of their friends to a concert of David's and we were seated next to some huge speakers and he said we all screamed, don't remember that,LOL,but I think that is what you would call above and beyond the call of duty. David Essex is still going strong after all these years and it's nice to hear about his life and family.
