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 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
"sir Micheal tells a good story."

"Totally loved it"
What a truely enjoyable listen. Michael talks with sincerity and fondness of his life in the UK and Hollywood. Heartwarming! An absolutely must read.
"An absolute joy to listen to Sir Michael Caine"
Pure pleasure listening to Sir Michael Caine , from the Hollywood dinners party's to the Mayfair orphans. What a legend! From the early days as a struggling actor with the likes of Terrence Stamp & Sean Connery & making the big time in Hollywood this has it all.
Great, well read
I loved the whole thing especially as Michael read it himself. I don't think it would be quite as interesting if read, although I could be wrong.
