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.

"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.
Michael Cane is always anentertainer, this book is no different. I have a new found respect Michael and his wall deserved rise to becoming a movie icon.
All the better for being read by Michael himself. Love it when he titters at a happy memory. And having heard him describe his family Christmas, I wish I could come too! Includes an insightful look at his roots and upbringing and how he progressed through his career. Nice too that he's a patriot who, although has enjoyed the good life elsewhere, wants nothing more than to settle down in England with his family around him.
I really enjoyed hearing how Michael Caine come from nowhere to Hollywood star and finally finding out what Charlie's idea was ( the Italian job) 😀
absolutely loved it Michael Caine was truly engrossing. He has great love for his family,something extremely rare nowadays,although the word love is banded about. Also, I liked the fact that he NEVER has a bad word about any of his fellow actors. thank you Sir Michael, I have given 3 copies of this book to friends. my wish, I hope they enjoy it as much as I did.
loved it, couldn't stop listening to Michael Caine's wonderful story and voice a must have
"Really worth a listen, thanks Michael."
I've grown up with Michael Caine in the movies over the years , I felt as if I though I knew him, now having listened to The Elephant I really do, a greet story of a most talented unassuming actor who has given me a lo of pleasure. I would love to meet him,
Enjoyable light and entertaining. I like Michael Caine and especially enjoy how his love of Shakira and his family shines through.
"not a lot of people know.. "
that the narration of this varies from poorly read by caine, to witty and heartfelt recantour standards. strange inconsistency. great story though
