The book falls into two main parts; his route into comedy and his early years, prepared for publication some years ago and his more recent diary entries. I would have perhaps preferred a more consistent style, but the diary entries proved to be so much better than the earlier anecdotal approach, that in the end I didn't mind at all. The extensive selection of photos is also a great idea.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for a personal account of potential adversity turned into meteoric and we'll earned respect and adulation .

My only criticism relates to his story about when Little Nell appeared on Spicks and Specks. He describes her as having played Magenta on Rocky Horror. Adam, I love you dearly, but she was Colombia, not Magenta. I've been a Rocky Horror fan far longer than I have one of yours!
