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.

Michael Caine and his relaxed and sometimes funny reading of the book. Enjoying his memories whilst reading it makes it all the more enjoyable for the listener.
Brilliant reading and best told by the man himself. Emotions across the board are reflected in his reading.
An Audible must listen for anyone who likes Michael Caine or biographies. Or even both! :)
The whole thing is a big picture
Live it as best you can
It's Michael's life as written and read by Michael. Loved it
I found Michael Caine to be a surprisingly candid and open author. The book is touching and almost sweet. I am amazed by his sense of gratitude for his apparent 'good fortune' and his humility regarding his ability as an actor.
I particularly enjoyed Michael recounting Christmases and why they are so special to him, His need for family closeness.
My first encounter with Michael Caine outside of his acting.
Due to the Author being the narrator, this book makes you feel like you are sharing a 'real' person's life.
Well written and well narrated. I certainly would read any other works that are narrated by Michael Caine
Yes, if they like movies and Michael Caine
The narration was great. Every autobiography should be read by the author. I love it when he laughs out loud sometimes when he retells a story or remembers something.
I love reading
Best Audiobook Yet
The delivery and the depth that Michael goes into to share his story
The unique character behind the story. I think all biographies should be read by their subjects, it adds another dimension that might have been lost being read by someone else
The story about his father passing away
Absolutely loved it. Listened to it on an 18 hour drive to Italy, played it going, and just had to play it again on the way back. Not once did we get bored or weren't fully immersed in the story. There was silence in the car for the whole journey! :)
This narration is really fresh and enjoyable. I love when Michael Caine chuckles and sometimes practically laughs out loud. You feel like you are in a pub with him and listening to him reminisce about the old days. Thoroughly entertaining!
