The astonishing and inspiring autobiography of Ricky Tomlinson, one of Britain's best-loved actors and entertainers.
Famous as the loveable couch potato Jim Royle of The Royle Family, Ricky Tomlinson has entertained millions without ever leaving his armchair. Now, in his long-awaited autobiography, he surprises yet again with a remarkable story of love, hardship, humour, injustice and triumph. His mother used to tell him that he had lived three lives, but even se miscounted. He has been a plasterer, banjo player, stand-up comic, union agitator, political activist; film extra, award-winning actor and unwilling guest of Her Majesty's prison service.

Even though read by Ricky Tomlinson the book was a better read, I felt Ricky left a lot out of the book, his funny stories. This was more of a highlight of his book, so I was disappointed by this. However I appreciated he did tell the story just wish it was word by word of the book version.
