A thoroughly absorbing and outstanding book! Before reading this i only knew of David Niven the actor and not the highly eloquent and entertaining author that he also was. Clearly he uses some artistic license in a lot of his hollywood anecdotes but this simply makes them all the more entertaining and a joy to read! I would highly recommend this book to anyone either with an interest in the man himself or just after a highly entertaining book to read!

This is a re-read of the book from the 70's, reminded me of a lot places and things of years ago. Gives an interesting insight to how actors got into the movie business and the not too pleasant experience of becoming accepted. I have 2 friends who broke into films in the 70's and they agreed its not all glamour and champaign.
Most of the book is about this gentle and often witty life with side stories about ww2 and the how he was treated by state and the military.
His later work was better.
