'Reading this, you keep thinking: poor Keith Floyd. In a tribute at the start, James Whitaker sums him up. A brilliant cook. A natural. But he drank. He smoked. He lived large. Floyd himself wonders why his friends are happily married and he is not. He does things on the hoof, intuitively. He is the first routinely to film cooking shows as outside broadcasts. There is excitement. There is more drinking and sadness. Then he has his last meal, feels sick and lies down.' --The Scotsman
'Floyd's autobiography lurches, like its subject, from hilarity to madness and gives fascinating insights into fame and its dangers.' --Good Book Guide
