Review

'Really well written and brutally honest autobiography' --Richard Madeley

'His book is from the heart, full of hope and inspiration.' --Denise Welch

'Rock on Kevin, you're the best!' --Brian May

'Kevin Kennedy's autobiography shows how alcoholism crept up on him and nearly killed him. With humour, humility and honesty, Kevin tells us how he found recovery and is now living a life beyond his wildest dreams. This is an inspirational book and a great read.' --Mark Gilman, International Addiction and Recovery Expert

His book is from the heart, full of hope and inspiration. --Denise Welch

Product Description

Curly Watts is a TV icon for twenty years appearing on millions of TV screens around the country in Coronation Street. Kevin Kennedy is one of the UK's most successful soap actors, although behind the scenes and high-profile appearances, he faced a painful personal battle.

Kevin shares his experiences of alcoholism, rehab and IVF as well stories from the set and stars he worked with during some of the brightest, and darkest moments of his life, through to his music career and current roles.

This brutally honest autobiography provides a rare glimpse into life behind the scenes, the power of addiction, and his battle with recovery.

'This book will rock you, just as brilliant Kevin rocks us night after night at the Dominion. He is unstoppable' -Brian May

‘Kev and I have been friends for a long long time, when I asked him for help, he was there for me 100%. His book is from the heart, full of hope and inspiration, a must read for all who want to know more about recovery.’ - Denise Welch

5.0 out of 5 stars The street to recovery the life of Kevin Kennedy 30 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well Kevin Kennedy was very frank about his life good and bad. I enjoyed his down to earth approach as he took us through his life. The insight to his talent and hard work mixed with a fun and normal social drinking that eventually got out of control. How he handled this and turned his life around. The main parts of the book give us an informed background to the street and it's characters over the years. I am sad now as I have reached the last page. My thanks to Kevin Kennedy

5.0 out of 5 stars Fasinating Read 15 May 2014
By Rob1969
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was a huge fan of the Curly and Reg years in Corrie, those two together were comedy gold and I miss them so much ,having watched Corrie for 40 years ,Curly and Reg are my all-time favourite characters ,Even better than Stan and Hilda!

I am also a fan of Kevin's song Bulldog Nation, a much underrated song and his album Present Kennedy has stonking songs on it too!

I bought this book hoping it would be interesting, instead I found it completely addictive I could not put it down and read it a little over a day, it is so honest, sometimes sad and with a very strong inspirational message, I loved it, I am now not only a fan of Kevin Kennedy the actor and singer I am now a huge fan of Kevin Kennedy the man.

I still hope he will return to Corrie one day and maybe Reg too, now that would be amazing.

This book is a must read. Brilliant.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
an inspirations to anyone who thinks they may be drinking more than they should. If Kevin can get back from the depths he'd got to and achieve what he has since shows it's possible for anyone who wants to even try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Inspiring 6 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is honest, frank and extremely inspirational. Written with feeling and love. Kevin talks about his life from his youth, throughout his career, and his battle with alcohol. The battle which he describes openly and sharing his low points and how he was supported by his friends and wonderful wife Clare. Fantastic read.
