Looking back over his life, from schoolboy crushes (on girls and boys) to discovering the power of making people laugh (in the Cambridge Footlights with David Mitchell), and from losing his beloved mother to becoming a husband and father, Robert Webb considers the absurd expectations boys and men have thrust upon them at every stage of life.

It was good and I learnt a lot of things about Robert that I didn't know. However, it is let down by the fact that he hardly touches on his relationship with David Mitchell or the TV shows that made him famous.

When the body of a young girl is found in a remote countryside lane, evidence suggests she was drugged, abused and thrown from a moving van - before being beaten to death. While DI Annie Cabbot investigates the circumstances in which a 14-year-old could possibly fall victim to such a crime, newly promoted Detective Superintendent Alan Banks must do the same - but the crime Banks is investigating is the coldest of cases.

Over half of the women in America are on a diet, and most of us feel like we have spent our entire adult life struggling to keep our weight down. The shocking discovery you are about to make is this is not our fault. The tasteless diet versions of our favorite foods, that we have been encouraged to eat, doesn't help us lose weight; it does the exact opposite.

If you can open your mind enough then allow this book in. The core is the law of attraction but it is explained in a much more logical and healthy way than normal.
