If you're thinking of buying this book, consider the following. If you own any Peter Kay DVD and watched whilst listening to the commentary or any interviews/extras then you know nearly everything this book tells you. The author has taken quotes from these DVD's and uses them as if he's the only person who would have listened to them !! A good majority of the book is the author outlining the programmes Peter has made, which if you have watched them you know already. For some reason the author inserts random quotes that seem to have no relevance to Peters story, that just get irritating after the first couple of chapters. True, the author has made the effort to interview people that Peter knew and this gives you some insight into his past, but what I would consider is some major interesting points in Peters life, he skims over with hardly and new information given. I would save your money and buy Peters own biography, and I can only hope that it makes me laugh (unlike this book), and gives you some interesting information that I didn't already know about Peter (unlike this book).
