Michael McIntyre has become one of my favourite comedians. He's very sharp and clever at observing people, including himself and showing us how hilarious our everyday lives can be. I've laughed hard at many of Michaels jokes/skits. After exhausting YouTube and purchasing his DVD's this ebook was a must have. Michael begins his story with his parents and how they met and from there takes us on the whole journey from his birth right through to, finally, his incredible success! The interactive videos through the ebook bring a lot of the reading to life, although there are many links that you cannot view due to copyright which is disappointing. In Michaels story, however, what resonates strongly in his life, before he reached the highest pillars of success, is the struggle he went through to finally become the success he is now. I really felt there would have been many a time that common sense and reason could have kicked in and changed his course But his sheer determination and grit to succeed in life and love are truely inspirational. I haven't seen Michael perform live yet. I missed out last year when he toured here in Australia. But after reading his story, seeing him perform live has gone straight to the top of my bucket list! Great read.
This was a great read! Having only recently become familiar with his comedy, I am such a huge fan of Michael's shows! When I came across his book, I had to get it. It did not disappoint! It is so easy to read, he draws you in with warmth, humor, affection and has a real knack for storytelling. He is such a likeable fellow and I love how much he worships his family, esp his beautiful wife. If you're a fan, you need to read this, he has an amazing story of how he got to where he is today, written so entertainingly well.
An engaging story told with relentless optimism. Couldn't put it down and I am so happy that his story was told in such a sincere way - it never had the feeling of rags to riches (or riches-rags-riches); It was relatable story told with humility. Not to mention left me blissfully happy.
