A must read if you're a fan
on 8 February 2013
I've been agreat fan of Jimmys for many years and was looking forward to reading this book. I was slightly disappointed, although it catches his personality well it also shows some of his bitterness.
It got a bit tedious repeatedly showing his bitterness of not being given a chance to be a success on television and his dislike of Mike Reid.
If you are a fan of Jimmy then read the book it is a great insight to his character. It is quite funny in parts and, for me, the gags were just as funny in print because I could picture him telling them, maybe some of them wouldn't work for anyone who hasn't seen him live.
I don't regret buying the book but it's not a book I would re-read.
