Publisher's Summary

Sir Michael Caine is loved not just for his many films, but for his warmth, honesty, and humour in describing every aspect of his life from his humble South London beginnings to performing alongside the greatest Hollywood actors of the day. As Sheridan Morley wrote about his first book: 'It has taken two decades to get a man back on (Niven's) Moon, and the man is Michael Caine.'
In this long-awaited, and self-penned, new autobiography, he tells us not only the events of the almost 20 years since his last book – which include his Oscar winning film Cider House Rules, as well as the box-office busting Batman - but also many great eye-opening and entertaining stories from his life and career, shedding light on the real Hollywood and the years he struggled to get there.
With all the charm and wit we know him for, this audiobook is set to become a new classic to rank alongside Niven's Moon's a Balloon.

Audiobook beats Hardback!!!

This is a great example of a good book made even better by being made into an audiobook. The book itself is great. A fascinating recollection of a movie career spanning over 50 years written in an engaging and conversational style, however, the book is made brilliant by being read by the author. I could listen to Michael Caine all day long with his distinctive and unique voice. He reads the text so brilliantly and with such genuine emotion it's as if he's right there with you talking just to you. Brilliant!!!

Absolutely fantastic. A very very good example of an audio book. Caine's writing is at times hilarious made funnier by having the man himself reading it (they even leave in parts where he laughs himself). A real highlight.
