5.0 out of 5 stars Uptight, 22 July 2010
This is an unusual item in that it is a vanity publishing project and as such was the most expensive book I have ever bought.
Unfortunately most of it is a very dull read.
What makes the book is just how terrible it is, it is patently obvious that it has not been edited professionally and is littered with repetitions. The author even admits he might be repeating himself but can't be bothered to check!. The book drips bile, mainly directed at the modern TV types who fail to utilise his talents. His descriptions of media types are laugh out loud material.
Surely there cannot be any other autobiography in history where the author: a)Mentions an incident and then says he doesn't want to talk about it; b)Skirts over his most famous professional relationship and C) barely mentions his wife and family.
A modern classic worth every penny.
