1.0 out of 5 stars Why's he not in prison yet? 1 Dec 2014
Format:Hardcover
I'm having to give this one star as zero isn't an option. You'll notice the 5 star reviews on here are all 'people' that haven't reviewed anything else, in other words him or his agent trying to boost his ratings and sustainability.

I read parts of this in a waiting room and found it to be just like the man himself - boring, drab, interminable and loathsome in equal measure.

About as entertaining as a car crash, avoid at all costs, unless you're short of toilet paper.

Having recently read Piers Morgan's Misadventures of a Big Mouth Brit, this diary was refreshing in that it reads better without the endless banter, blarney and endless self promotion. I know some enjoy the gossip and name dropping but I prefer this more subdued and reflective style.

I was expecting something of a diatribe about his war on the American Gun culture.Instead, Piers Morgan makes a few well made points that peaked my interest into thinking about a nation that sees safety in it's ability to defend itself with weapons. Statistics bely this belief, yet intelligent arguments are made either way, by himself and his interviewed protagonists.

I have read a few, if not all of the Piers Morgan diaries so far and without exception, found them entertaining and full of impressive achievements due to relentless passion and humour for life. He reveals more of himself in this book, regards his children's sporting success, his Mom's maternal exchanges with Gordon Brown and highlighting his son's hero worship of Oscar Pistorius (before the fateful Valentine tragedy)

I found it endearing to read, yet hardly surprising, that he struggled to be separated from his boys, that he found the endless flights and sleepless nights tough to deal with. He makes his feelings clear regards the Levison Inquiry and gets an apology from the Labour MP that accused him of boasting about phone hacking.

One thing Piers Morgan isn't, is boring. His writing is conversational and this helps when he reminds us of interviews he did with world leaders and made complex issues simple and easy to digest. He is family man and strongly believes in loyalty between friends,especially when they are in trouble.

4.0 out of 5 stars a very enjoyable read ! 28 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Piers is smart,funny ,entertaining and ingenious! and is a master of self-deprecation,so I can't understand this passion for "Piers-bashing" that seems to govern some people.

3.0 out of 5 stars Life in American 14 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
That's it really, it follows the path Piers has taken since moving permanently to America. The main theme of the book being his strength of character in tackling the Gun Laws that have allowed any American to hold arms to defend themselves. His point being that you don't need automatic rifles and machine guns to do that.
It would be nice to think that Americans would buy this book and learn from reading it. Something tells me after reading the book, that that will not be the case. So yes it's okay but not gripping as we Brits are not as familiar with the people he interviews. The Diary format works very well, could he have picked this format up from The Honourable Tony Benn?
