Publisher's Summary

Having started on Radio 2 in January 2003, Jeremy Vine realised he was soon to take his 25,000th listener call to his lunchtime show. As the magic number approached, he decided to take stock of the wisdom his listeners have imparted over the airwaves by way of anecdotes on everything including love, life and poisonous plants.

The moment of self-reflection couldn't have come at a better time, with his doctor warning him about 'sniper's alley' - when people get taken out by all kinds of illnesses between 47 and 52.

When Jeremy's brother - the comedian Tim Vine - bought him a watch for his 50th birthday, Jeremy concluded that if the watch was bought by comedy, then perhaps every second of his life was now a joke. Which was when he decided to go on Strictly Come Dancing.

This is his hilarious memoir of lessons learnt from life, listeners and Len Goodman.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Who doesn’t read their own audio book!"

    Annoyed that the sample was Jeremy Vine , then purchased to find our he only reads the introduction! I love Jeremy Vine’s show and wanted to hear him, instead a man who has the same annoying voice as Ed Milliband. It bored me as I wasn’t engaged, gave up after half way through. It would have been completely different if Jeremy was reading it himself.

    "Why can't Jeremy read his own book?"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book was an enjoyable listen on my drive to work. Light and entertaining.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of What I Learnt?

    A collection of anecdotes from the life and career of Jeremy Vine. Not quite an autobiography though. Some funny stores and some sad.


    What about Jeremy Vine and Peter Kenny ’s performance did you like?

    I don't understand why Jeremy Vine isn't reading the whole book - disappointing.

    "Outstanding!"

    A great listen. Takes the best of the Jeremy Vine show & gives background, analysis & depth to some of the stories & characters who have called in.

    "A thoroughly entertaining read"

    This book is packed with short stories which on some occasions shows the lengths some people will go to to get a mention on radio and at other times tells some truly heart warming stories and heart renching tales carefully compiled to make a truly entertaining read.
