Delightful book by a very funny man. I read this very quickly as it was so interesting and amusing. Imam a contemporary of Michael and so was well acquainted with the stars of the golden age. it was fascinating to read about them and to see how a boy from a poor family made it in that milieu withou losing the essential of what he was. I would say this is a must for movies lovers of the age of what Imwould say we're 'real Stars'

I was glued to this book. When reading it I imaged Michael talking directly to me, like in his movies.

We bought this for my father-in-law for his birthday. He was over the moon to receive it and couldn't wait to start reading it.

In an email from the supplier, they stated that delivery could take up to 30 days (despite the Amazon details saying up to 19 days delivery).However we were delighted to find that the book was delivered well in time for my father-in-law's birthday.

Book fine but came after it was required for a Father's Day present. I will have to keep it for a Xmas present now. It was supposed to be in stock and it was only after I'd finished with the order that it was shown as coming after it was required. Very disappointed as this is the first time this has happened on Amazon.

Very amusing and a wonderful insight into this entertaining actor's life and loves. I have searched for this tape for a long time having initially purchased it as an impulse purchase about 15 years ago in Johannesburg---the original was spoileed in a faulty cassette player. Many thanks for the great service.

I was disapointed all he talked about was my great friends naming names all the time, it started off not bad but I got bored very quickly,a shame as we both come from the Elephant & I used to see him now & again, stick to films your very good at that & leave the writing alone.

I really enjoyed this autobiography and agree with the other favourable reviews. I usually have difficulty completing long books but not this one, a great read from start to finish. Recommended to anyone who has seen and enjoyed any Michael Caine film.

although this was no whodunnit mystery,you just couldnt leave it.
i suggest it to all movie goers.
Michael Caine is undoubtedly one of the most interesting ,and talented actors and this book proves he is a talented story teller as well.

Laugh out loud funny with superb annecdotes of people as diverse as prince Phillip to Charles Manson.
Caine writes with self deprecating humour that endears like no book I've read in years. Love it! Love it! Love it!

There is no side to this man, he tells it how it is and he is brilliant with it.It was funny and sad but both completely in context (even the swear words!!!).
One of the best biographys I have read in a long time.
