Well worth the read missed out on a lot of sun reading it.
I read this book on a holiday in Cyprus and once started could not put it down it reviews his struggle to start his career - how fortunate he was at certain times and his struggle to get to venues to perform. He certainly put a lot of hard work to get to the heights he did and well deserves his success. I recommend this book to everyone.

LAUGH OUT LOUD FUNNY
NOT ACTUALY READ THE WHOLE THING YET BUT IT WAS RECOMENDED TO ME BY A FAMILY MEMEBER WHO SAID SHE LAUGHED OUT LOUD PRETTY MUCH FROM THE FIRST PAGE ONWARDS SO AFTER THAT HOW COULD I NOT BUY IT. I AM STUDYING AT THE MOMENT SO THE ONLY BOOKS I AM READING ARE ACADEMIC ONES HOWEVER I COULDN'T RESIST A LITTLE READ AND AFTER READING THE FIRST CHAPTER I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL I HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO READ THE REST. PETER KAY IS HILLARIOUS AND HE HAS A WAY OF DESCIBING DETAILS TO YOU IN A WAY THAT MAKES YOU SEE CLEARLY WHAT HE DID. GLAD MY FAMILY MEMBER RECOMENDED IT AS I NOW HAVE SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO READING ONCE MY EXAMS ARE OVER.AND IT REALLY IS LAUGH OUT LOUD FUNNY!
