Terrible narration. Sounds like he's too close to the mic and constantly licking his teeth.

Epic

Terry is an amazing story teller and the stories and as loose as it gets!

The title says it all and does not over sell it in the slightest.

I read a lot of non fiction books for The Andy Rowe show, this is the most entertaining.

When is the movie coming

One of the best audio books ever and such a great story and the way Terry Stone spoke made me feel as if I was sitting in a boozer next to him having a chat about the old days

Shockingly poor

So poor recorded and read
Was he eating and drinking whilst recording this on an iPhone?!
Not an audio book - more of a poorly produced podcast

A great shame as I was so keen to hear Terry’s story

Good idea poorly executed

I really respect Terry for making everything in his life happen for himself. Even this book feels like him taking an opportunity and running with it, however the book doesn’t really have much of a plot and has been poorly edited (there’s a part where he looses his way and stumbles, it’s then re-read so you have to skip about 5 minutes through the chapter you’ve already heard). Good effort but would liked to have heard more about the club culture of that era and less about the “birds” he’s banged and thieves he’s hospitalised.

Hopefully a second book follows

Loved hearing about the old days of club promotion and that hard work and graft all pays off in the end
