Having read the other reviews, I do appreciate D Smiths comments - there are many instances where Knutty shows an unpleasant side of his character. However, he is a stereotypical Yorkshireman with a big gob and a high opinion of himself. Rather than falsely make himself out to be some faultless character (as I'm sure you will find will find in may autobiographies) tempting though it may have been, he tells it like it is. He is honest and doesn't try to hide anything. Good for him.
As a Sheffield lad I enjoyed many of the local anecdotes (the dee dar bit was amusing, but will be indecipherable to any non South Yorks readers). His recollections of life on the cruise ships I also found interesting. Don't expect any astounding showbiz revelations, just a straightforward account of the second half of his life. It interested me enough to maybe read his previous book if I can find it cheap, I'm not made of money !
Commiserations to him for the recent loss of his wife, which must have happened after the book was written. Whatever he got up to with the ladies before their meeting, it's obvious that he was completely devoted to her. What a tragedy.
