In 2009, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band performed at the Super Bowl's halftime show. The experience was so exhilarating that Bruce decided to write about it. That's how this extraordinary autobiography began. Over the past seven years, Bruce Springsteen has privately devoted himself to writing the story of his life, bringing to this audio the same honesty, humor, and originality found in his songs.

A must for any fan. Hear his story straight from the Boss himself. Beautiful recording too.

Panic over, he's back! Everyone's favourite grumbling funny man and star of BBC2's 'Mock the Week', Andy Parsons is back on the road with his brand new show, Gruntled. Britain's foremost topical comedian returns to the stage for more logically rigorous, cutting edge comedy. Expect the usual clever politically inspired bemusements and disappointedly crushed enthusiasm. This is a sharp, thought provoking show by one of our most astute comedians in the UK.

Great Stand Up

An effortless stand up performance with great delivery and satire. It passed the test - I was laughing on the train. Great change to have a comic tackle politics with such wit and observation.

Whilst in Ireland for an International Song Competition, Tony Hawks was amazed to see a hitch-hiker, trying to thumb a lift, but with a fridge. This seemed amazingly optimistic - his Irish friends, however thought nothing of it at all. 'I had clearly arrived in a country', writes Tony, 'where the qualifications for 'eccentric' involved a great deal more than that to which I had become used'. Two years pass but the fridge incident haunts our author.

This is a great listen and really enjoyable. The book was good but the author reading it to you is even better. You can hear the characters spring to life from Tony's own perspective. Get the unabridged version the 7 hours will fly by.
