It was a terrific, can't put it down read. It arrived two days ago and is already dog eared! I loved his style of writing and his frankness and honesty were both refreshing and beguiling. Great." - Graham Clark "I loved it..I Iaughed till I cried...and I think you are a bloody genius!" - Susan Bullock. "Terrific. By turns hilarious and touching." - Clive Bayley
