Sir Michael Caine is loved not just for his many films, but for his warmth, honesty, and humour in describing every aspect of his life from his humble South London beginnings to performing alongside the greatest Hollywood actors of the day. As Sheridan Morley wrote about his first book: 'It has taken two decades to get a man back on (Niven's) Moon, and the man is Michael Caine.'
In this long-awaited, and self-penned, new autobiography, he tells us not only the events of the almost 20 years since his last book – which include his Oscar winning film Cider House Rules, as well as the box-office busting Batman - but also many great eye-opening and entertaining stories from his life and career, shedding light on the real Hollywood and the years he struggled to get there.
With all the charm and wit we know him for, this audiobook is set to become a new classic to rank alongside Niven's Moon's a Balloon.

"great companion to have in the car"
loved it. only neg, becomes sadder as it gets on. as Michael gets older and his friends pass away.
"A Must Listen"
extremely interesting to hear his story about his life before Hollywood and how his opinion about the films and stars he's been with
"A truly great listen which made me laugh aloud"
I was sorry he didn't mention asking me out for a coffee after a performance of "Next Time I'll Sing to You" and I said no thank you. Oh what a fool I was!
"Very easy and enjoyable listen"
Very funny and intresting life story of a man that as seen and done it all. I was fascinated by the story of what he did in is national service days.
Great story, couldn't put it down.
It could only have been read by MC
I laughed, learned and found it thought provoking in many ways. A real honest, at it is and was account. And so nice to be read by the author, adds more to it and makes it more real.
Fantastic book and Michael reading it makes it so much more special!!! He gives it feeling and even has a giggle at the bits that make him chuckle.
"Simply wonderful listening"
A wonderfully relaxed, open, amusing, generous, irrepressibly entertaining unabridged autobiography. Apart from a bit of name-dropping (mainly of Hollywood power brokers I've never heard of who are long-term friends of the author), this is a breath of fresh air and the best autobiography I've listened to by a long stretch. No wonder it was a sell-out when published in 2010! One of my Top 3 Audible recordings. I've listened to it numerous times and it infallibly cheers me up, intrigues and entertains me - which can't be a bad thing! Superb.
"I love Michael Caine, but ..."
I didn't see the print version.
I was sorry the book ended as I very much enjoy Michael Caine's delivery and humour.
I felt that he was talking to just me. I loved it when he had a bit of a laugh, or was emotional about something, i.e. his mother's death.
No, that would be impossible to do.
I loved the book, but was disappointed to find that it had many of the same stories as in his first autobiography.
Superbly. Written and narrated by one of my heroes.Thank you.Paul F. What is next?Mr Caine.
