A man who gives a good account of himself is probably lying
on 2 July 2015
George Orwell said: "Autobiography is only to be trusted when it reveals something disgraceful. A man who gives a good account of himself is probably lying, since any life when viewed from the inside is simply a series of defeats. However, even the most flagrantly dishonest book can without intending it give a true picture of its author."
Courtney paints himself as a bad boy done good, who always comes out on top, and makes sure the real nasty guys get what they deserve. To say this book is full of s*** is, frankly, an understatement, and should be treated as a work of complete fiction.
