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.

A wonderful collection of hilarious cricket stories and anecdotes from the one and only 'Tuffers'. Phil Tufnell, aka 'Tuffers', is the much-loved English cricketer who has now become one of the country's favourite broadcasters. Not cast from the same mould as other players of his generation, Tufnell has become a cult figure for his unorthodox approach to the game ... and to life in general. Tuffers' Cricket Tales is a deliciously eccentric collection of the great man's favourite cricket stories that will amuse and inform.

He's charismatic, talented and extremely sexy. His breathtaking performance as the latest James Bond won him legions of fans and proved that, as well as being an outstanding actor, he coud cut it as an action hero and redefine a cinematic icon to huge critical acclaim. Last year, he was thrust into the spotlight once more as he took the lead role in the hotly anticipated remake of Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Would you listen to Daniel Craig again? Why?

No once is enough with this guy narrating he did not vary his style and found it quite bland to listen to

What was one of the most memorable moments of Daniel Craig?

His Bond memories the highs of the appointment as bond and the way it changed his life into the media and public spotlight

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Varied his tone Daniel's story is a great one and needed a better effort

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No snatches of his life are good for me I dont think many biographies I could do in a single hit
