Product description


"A bright, breezy, and entertaining read."--Daily Express

"A chatty and engaging read."--Sunday Times, Books of the Year

"A down-to-earth, kindhearted ramble from your nice British great-uncle, who's led a fascinating and glamorous life but never forgot his humble roots. [...] full of irresistibly tossed-off moments involving the likes of Cary Grant, Quincy Jones, Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson, Bette Davis, and Stephen Hawking."--Seattle Times

"Caine melds candid anecdotes and a master class on acting into an upbeat, unpretentious, and star-studded memoir.... Warm recollections and practical advice from an acclaimed star."--Kirkus Reviews

"Caine reflects on an exceptional life on and off stage and shares pertinent advice and poignant observations in a dishy and anecdotal rumination. Caine's pithy but passionate counsel can be applied to nearly any situation. Gracious, generous, and humble, this consummate professional is a generous advocate for creating a fulfilling and contented life."--Booklist

"Caine the raconteur provides exactly what an admiring reader would want from the cockney-born Hollywood vet.... The great stuff is when he recalls his days in swinging 1960s England."--New York Times Book Review

"Charming, advice-filled look at his extraordinary career."--People

"Funny, warm, down-to-earth--will captivate fans and casual readers alike."--Publishers Weekly

"National treasure Michael Caine shares the wisdom, insight and skills life has taught him, all with his fabulous storytelling."--Prima

"Thoroughly engaging."--Sunday Express (UK) --This text refers to the paperback edition.
