Keith Floyd appealed to a whole generation of men, who realised that it was OK to cook. Although clearly not an easy man to work with, Keith put his heart and soul into life in general.
This autobiography is rather more reflective and self critical when compared with previous versions. A perennial Jack-the-lad, Keith probably represents what many men who grew up in the 1980s and 90s aspired to; even if we ignored the reality of it! A thoroughly likeable man with passion and enthusiasm who was incapable of looking at the big picture, he provides us with an entertaining resume of his life up to 2000.
In many ways Keith Floyd typifies the 1980s aspirational era when money flowed and where money could be easily made. Only... Keith couldn't!
Take a punt and buy this book and you won't be disappointed.
