Review

uproarious and unflinching (Mail on Sunday)

Mr Caine is a charming raconteur....he writes with a quality that has grown rare among memoirists: good cheer (New York Times)

Michael Caine's second work of memoir brims with his gift for genial anecdote, but this time there's a hint of sadness as he looks back (Sunday Times)

To read Caine is to be in the company of an amiable, sentimental man who has achieved great success - and happiness - without appearing to be in the least smug. (Daily Mail, John Preston)

A truly incredible life story. (The Sun)

Not much mileage in discussing warm receptions then, unless it's to wonder if a literary festival crowd has ever sounded more fulfilled than when Michael Caine finally said "you're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off" and "not a lot of people know that" halfway through his appearance in Cheltenham last weekend. (The Times)

you can hear his distinctive voice throughout, his fans will enjoy the ride. (Choice)

a gold standard celebrity who makes the modern sort look cheap (The Times)

most memorable... This follow-up might have seemed over-indulgent were it not for his self-deprecating vignettes, told in a voice as distinctive as his spoken one, that led to critical comparisons with David Niven's classic, The Moon's a Balloon. (Independent)

Michael Caine fans will love his 'blow the bloody doors off' autobiography. (Fabulous)

Praise for What's It All About?: 'Written with just the right mix of warmth and candour, and in a prose style that is the literary equivalent of his easy-going, up-front persona, this is a super book that informs as much as it entertains.' (Sunday Express)

It has taken two decades to get a man back on the Moon and the man is Michael Caine. Niven's influence as a writer runs right through it... some genuinely vintage laughs (Sunday Times)

Caine gives his public value for money, covering his whole life with David Nivenish charm (Sunday Telegraph)
