I requested this book for my birthday last week and what a week it has been. I have laughed, cried and found myself slipping into an age long gone, mainly due to the wonderfully descriptive writing and the sheer happiness that oozes from the pages. There are sad moments too, the auther recalling how he lost younger sibblings. His strong loving mother, struggling to make ends meet, and his delightful father were described with such conviction I almost felt I could hear their voices. A really lovely book recalling his life upto the early 60's. A must read for anyone with a hunger for nostalgia and maybe also a soft spot for Tommy.

Tommy has given us a real insight into life at the end of WW2 and through the fifties etc. with a true cockney flavour of humour along with tragedies.
Well worth a read for those who lived this era like me, and a good historical picture for younger readers.
He was the first rock star in the UK!!

This is a very nostalgic book even though it's a bit before my time! The mention of the good old pie and mash shop and London in the old days was lovely.
