A sequel to Niven's hilarious The Moon's a Balloon, Bring on the Empty Horses is more a collection of stories rather than the memoir of The Moon's ... and while sometimes the stories felt like they had been cut from his previous book, there is much to enjoy here.

Including great characters like Charles Aubrey Smith and Hopalong Cassidy (and their meeting on the cricket field), and an explanation of the book's title I wish Niven had lived long enough to publish a third tome. ( )

A great read following up on his first book The Moon is a Balloon ( )

David Niven was not a great actor, but he was a great raconteur. This is a second collection of his stories of Hollywood in the 1960's and 1970's, stitched together with a bit of autobiography. After the wonderful magic of vol. one "The Moon's a Balloon", this is a small letdown, but still a good book for an idle moment. ( )

Niven must have been the ideal guest. He was a naturally-gifted storyteller with a wonderful, often self-deprecating, sense of humour. ( )
