Michael Caine's led a rags-to-riches life and has some amusing stories to tell along the way. Unfortunately his performance on this 1992 abridged reading is almost completely flat and monotone. About the only time it perks up is when he remarks, as part of a major edit in the story, that if we want to know more about his numerous films we'll need to read the book - I could almost hear him laughing as he said it. His 2010 autobiography 'The Elephant to Hollywood' (also available here on Audible) is far more entertaining and far better value too. It covers the same ground and then some - a generous, unabridged 10 hours of the irrepressible Mr Caine rounding up his life so far.

Michael Caine's self-narrated Auto Biography makes all the difference to this audible book.
Highly recommend it. Unbelievable how down to earth this immensely successful A-Lister was and still is.
My wife and I listened to this from start to finish within a 280mile round trip in the car.
We hope there's another self-nareated Michael Caine auto-biography.

What would have made What's It All About? better?
It was too short, but of course that was the length of the book I would imagine.
If you’ve listened to books by Michael Caine before, how does this one compare?
Haven't listened to any other.
What didn’t you like about Michael Caine’s performance?
I love Michael Cain but he's not a very animated reader. The material was fairly interesting, but delivery was lacking
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from What's It All About??
I love Michael Caine, and in his autobiography he comes out as witty and entertaining. He has a wonderful voice and it is not at any point boring.
