3.0 out of 5 stars Mr.Shallow? I don't think so - re-read it some of you, 6 April 2008
This review is from: Anything Goes: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
I think all the reviews to date have simply voted for or against the man. I think the book is actually more entertaining than the critics state, and less revellatory and angst-wridden than the 5-stars want to see. I think its just a vaguely interesting tale, written honestly and in the main in good humour. Noone can doubt the hardwork and effort that it takes to get all the way from Glasgow to Cardiff via the US and the West End. but in simple, autobiographical terms - it aint up there with the greats. and why should it be - he's a musical theatre leading man who wrote it himself (aided by his sister). nevertheless it IS entertaining and endearing. Its impossible to read this and not like the man and his family. May be in another 10 years, and with a little more depth to all the major areas covered including his west end break and his time on the couch with the good lord, it would rate higher. by the way - buy it for you mum. i guarantee that ALL mums will like it.

I have not read the book yet but do intend in buying it soon, I seen John at Glasgow secc doing Alladin in panto he was so funny and seems to be a geat guy. I am probably bias as I am from Glasgow not far from where John came from (3 miles) away, I also think he is so lovely a person but also beautiful looking man in person to.

So anyone who doesn't agree with you can't have read it properly? Wow, that's some serious arrogance you have going there, mate. "All mums will like it?" Why, have you met them all?
