I loved the Parkinson TV show growing up. His guests were usually funny and the interviews were entertaining. I enjoyed the book a bit slow in parts but live isn;t always fast paced. He seemed to go from one thing to another with little planning. If you enjoyed the show you'll enjoy the book. I didn't realise he spent so much time in Australia. ( )

An interesting insight into the professional life of Michael Parkinson, focussing on the influences of cricket, media and celebrities, and what made him the man he is today. A typical autobiography with some personal family emotional insights. A fairly short read, easy language, and lots of photos. Not amazing, but does what it says on the tin - if you admire or respect the man, it's worth a read. ( )
