This autobiography covers Frost's early life, his big break, and his move to the USA and concentrates on the 60s.
Funny, interesting read, what comes across is the ambition, sense of humour and showmanship of this Methodist Preacher's son.
Some brilliant interviews are recalled; Enoch Powell was an outstanding example of how Frost used to confront the guests he simply didn't like with what he regarded as facts (he comes across as a dyed-in-the-wool liberal).
Even more of a revelation to someone of my generation born after this period was the breadth of his achievement to tape 5 U.S. shows and 2 U.K. shows every week, to set up L.W.T and be instrumental in introducing Britain to the likes of Peter Cook, Ronnie Barker etc is mind boggling.
Fascinating read. Highly Recommend it.
(Will the 2nd volume explain why he is wasted presenting banal game shows like through the keyhole on daytime TV I wonder??)

If you want to be taken back to the 1960's, this is the book for you. You won't be disappointed.
