Summary

Well hark at you, stumbling upon my autobiography. Bet you wouldn't have put money on that three years ago, eh? Please don't stress yourself out too much, though; it's actually socially acceptable nowadays that you're interested.

Firstly I'd like to emphasise that I have written this audiobook myself, so be assured you're getting the tooth, the whole tooth and nothing but the tooth! (Which was my original choice of title, but babe, we're so over that).

This audiobook documents my story, year by year, from my humble beginnings growing up in the East End of London and becoming one of the nation's most talked-about people overnight to finally moving up the spectrum from guilty pleasure and getting nearer to national treasure. It will make you laugh and cry, and most importantly you'll discover who I really am. If it doesn't do any of those things, you're not legally entitled to a refund - just clearing that up ;-).

I hope you enjoy listening this book as much as I have enjoyed writing it. This book has been like therapy, and Lord was I in need. Enjoy!

Fabulous

I love this book!!!! Some may not think that this is even a credible read but I don't care. It has made me giggle, chuckle, and at times proper laugh out loud!!! There is more than a few swear words but that's just the way Rylan is. I can remember a lot of the things that he has referenced through the book and hasn't had it easy at all. Bearing in mind all the politics and gloom and doom there has been at the moment, I have been genuinely surprised by this young man's honesty and hard work to get to where his is at the moment. If I could enjoy every book as much as this I might read more. The last book that made me laugh this much was Gok Wans ' Through thick and thin' book. Another great read.
I enjoyed this on Audible as it is Rylan actually reading the book so makes it very easy to listen to. Thoroughly recommend this book.

Couldn’t put it down

I loved this audible book, hearing Rylan tell his life story just made it more personal for me! I read this whilst on holiday in San Antonio.. the same place he talked about in his book! Loved the book and love Rylan!

Heartwarming and Funny

I didn't know what to expect,with this book as was recommend to me.

I will be honest I totally loved Rylans story, it was not what I expected it to be he sounds like a lovely caring and most important Grounded young man, I was expecting a demanding "Do you know who I am" Diva, how wrong was I ,I love that Rylan is a private person and treats his celebrity status as his job and does not let it cross to his personal life, a lovely,funny heartwarming listen highly recommended.

Laughed my head off

I have never laughed so much at a book before. It doesn’t sound like someone reading a book, it was like Rylan was sitting next to you telling you his story. I thought he couldn’t get funnier. Finished this in three days, couldn’t stop listening to it. So interesting and it felt like you knew him from the first chapter. Don’t be put off by the swearing. Didn’t swear as much as people were making out he did. I would recommend this to anyone who likes him.
