The stand-up comedian of his generation. Star of stage and screen. Tireless supporter of charity. Runner. Political campaigner. Fashion icon. Human. There is no one quite like Eddie Izzard. This is the story of how a boy who wanted to become a professional footballer and win the lead in Joseph and His Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat found comedy.

Really enjoyed this book. I thought it would be good but didn’t realise how good. Eddie added lots of footnotes, so many I thought they would get on my nerves however they did the opposite they just added to the whole story so am so glad I got the audio version and not the actual book.

Definitely worth downloading, great fun.

Phil Collins gained fame as both the drummer and the lead singer for Genesis and continues to enjoy worldwide success today. He's one of only three recording artists who have sold over 100 million albums both as solo artists and separately as principal members of bands - the other two being Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson.

What made the experience of listening to Not Dead Yet the most enjoyable?

This book was refreshingly frank and fun from a musician who has really enjoyed life and done many of the things most of us think we would like to have done.

Phil has a great book to help make it easy to listen to his story, well written and well read helped past many hours of driving, thanks.

Thought this was a book that would make me smile and it did not disappoint. Only part I did not enjoy was a bit in the middle where he read various newspaper reports but overall a fun time was had and I will be following this up with another of bumble's books.

He has a great voice to settle you down, he sounds like everyone's favourite uncle.
