I have nothing but respect for this man of peace and integrity (Sir Cliff Richard)
Legend William Roache ... lifts the lid on his incredible life and soapland career in a fascinating new autobiography. (Inside Soap Magazine)
About the Author
William Roache has been an actor on Britain's best-loved soap opera Coronation Street, for over 47 years - making him the world's longest-serving soap star.
As a young actor William auditioned for a TV drama that was likely to be running for only a few weeks. Now, 47 years later, he is the only original cast member and Coronation Street's success has established him as a household name.

Being a biography, this book starts off with William telling you about his childhood, his schooling etc and his life into adulthood and how he came to be an actor in Coronation Street. He talks about some of the people he has worked with in the show. There are some personal things he brings up in his life which I found quite sad, like the loss of his daughter Edwina. But as the book goes along, most of all I found it to be a book of a good heap of spiritual medicine. As William talks about his beliefs and the huge impact his beliefs have had on his life, I found myself being drawn in and I found it hard to put the book down. I just wanted to read more and more. It's such a positive read. I also enjoyed the many photo's in the book.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in William Roache as an actor to get a better sense of who he is and how he became famous. I would also recommend this book to anyone who is interested in spirituality. It was an inspirational read for me, and certainly something I needed to read right now.
After reading this book it has made me take stock of my life and start looking at life in a very different way than I have done so far.
A lot of what William says made sense to me and that's properly because I do believe their is life after death so I was wasn't as surprised as say someone who reads this but believes their is nothing after we die.
This book I think will help the reader understand spirituality if they really want to look at life in that way which I do.
A very enjoyable and heart warming book worth adding to anyones book shelf.
I saw Bill Roache on an Irish tv show last winter and was surprised and happy to hear is spiritual views which the media describe as 'bonkers', 'crazy' and 'eccentric'. How sad and brainwashed journalists are. They are afraid of his truths.
This is a good, interesting book with enough to keep the Corrie fan happy or those on a spiritual journey.
Worth rereading is A Gift Of Understanding on page 271 - a nice summation of his beliefs.
The writing style is average but its a good buy at a penny.
Good luck to you Bill!!
