Along with "what happens here stays here" and "Circus Circus isn't that bad", one of the biggest Las Vegas myths is that so-called insiders are the city's best sources of tips, reviews, and information. Often, however, obsessive Las Vegas visitors offer more trustworthy suggestions and accurate insights about the Las Vegas Strip and Fremont Street.

I started this audiobook thinking it would be a great guide to Las Vegas, I didn't expect it to be as funny as it was insightful. Genuinely entertaining listen. I can't recommend this book highly enough.

The long-awaited autobiography of one of Britain’s best-loved actors. Born the son of a Billingsgate market porter at the height of the Second World War, David Jason spent his early life dodging bombs and bullies, both with impish good timing.

Really interesting life story. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has an interest in Only Fools and Horses or any other David Jason project.

Captain Jackson Wolfe never thought he'd see the end of the Phage War in his lifetime. The enemy was too powerful, too numerous, and utterly determined to exterminate humanity. But the appearance of a new ally in the fight has changed all of that. For the first time since the original incursion, Wolfe thinks that maybe there's a chance to stop their implacable enemy before they have the chance to wipe out any more human planets.

Thoroughly entertaining. One of the best sci-fi series I've listened to. The story is excellent with twists and turns that keep you gripped from one chapter to the next. Excellently read too.
