Just as entertaining as the man himself
on 21 August 2003
I feel ashamed that I presumed the main content of David's book would focus around Bargain Hunt and his sudden rise to TV fame. How wrong could I be? In fact, it's only the last three chapters of this wonderful autobiography that mention Bargain Hunt at all.
The book is sometimes witty, charming and full of charisma like David's personality we see on the screen... but at other times there are tears, drama, and a string of compelling events that have shaped him throughout his amazing life. From his adventures around the world in antiques, showbiz and high society through to disovering his adoption and fond memories of a working-class childhood, this book was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. I would highly recommend it.
