What did you like most about How Did All This Happen??
Rarely does a book move me to tears and laughter so easily. This is one of the very few. Quite simply, because I don't want to be responsible for spoilers, if you've watched JB live, on TV or wherever and he's struck a chord, you literally need to read or listen to this book. It's beautifully written, emotionally narrated - entertaining, moving and inspirational all at once. It's one of the best autobios I've read/heard for a long time. I'm 10+ years younger than JB but a lot of his memories and desciptions of his earlie life wrought memories long buried. Enjoy.

I didn't know much about John Bishop before reading this book - but was keen to read it after watching the TV programme about his Sport Relief challenge (which is covered in the final chapter).
This book is very well written, and keeps you enthralled throughout - what an interesting and unusual life he has had.
His reading style is, in places, a little 'flat' when compared to his live stand-up delivery but that is just a very minor thing - once you have tuned in to his Liverpool accent then this biography will have you gripped right to the end.

If you could sum up How Did All This Happen? in three words, what would they be?
Prepare for tears.
Any additional comments?
I picked this after David Mitchell's Back Story which was equally entertaining. What surprised me, or maybe I just don't read that many autobiographies, was their views on the marriages and love - beats any wedding vows or romantic movie lines I have ever heard. Still a very good laugh and the pace was great and John's accent is wonderful.
