Format: Hardcover
Very enjoyable book, easy to pick up during your lunch breaks, allowing you to look at the 70's in rose tinted glasses. As someone born in '69 I could relate to most of the things in the book, but I do wish that they included Photos. This would have made a good book, fantastic.

From clothing, technology and crisps(he forgot to mention hedgehog flavour) its an enjoyable read for people in their 30s/40s. Now where is my Old Spice and Flares.

Format: Hardcover
A great trip down memory lane for those who remember the 1970s and 1980s. But also a great read for all who are interested in nostalgia. Philip Glenister shares his memories with us, and they will make you smile. You wouldn't think that things have changed that much since the 70s, but they have! A few photographs of some of the items mentioned would have been of interest, but a great book non the less. The perfect book to own.

This book is very funny. Had me laughing out loud. Mr. G. has a great turn of phrase, and had a great memory. Makes you think Oh Yeah I remember that. Highly Recommended. Even the dedication is very amusing.
Well Done MR.G.

The ideal present for people of a certain age. A warm glow of nostagia will sweep over. Good writting style, an easy read. Makes an ideal toilet book.

Wonderful bit of nostalgia and should Glenister ever decide to hang up his acting boots he could do a lot worse than be a writer.Very funny book with lots of good memories delivered in an easy style which will make you laugh out loud.Excellent read.

I bought this as a big fan of PG, and am now an even bigger fan! Good read, well-written and easy to dip in and out of, took me right back to schooldays and beyond in the Seventies and Eighties. Phil, thanks for the memories..... !

I bought the audio CD as a gift for a friend but it didn't get to her.... I loved this. Very nostalgic, and so right. Bring back Capris and proper size Curly Wurlies!

I was encouraged to buy this from the other reviews on Amazon so my expectations were high.....I was disappointed, it's not a bad read but it's not as good as I thought it was going to be. The chapters were brief and didn't seem to follow on much ...May be it's me
