Beautifully read, Michael reads with love and gratitude for the women who raised him as a child; devastation of his mother's untimely death - and the devotion to his craft. My only complaint is that the book was abridged - but then where there's an alternative, I'll always go for the unabridged version - no matter what. My favourite quote "Every day will get a little easier to deal with her not being there physically, but don't ever get over it. Don't ever let her leave your thoughts. That way you'll always have your mother's love inside of you and alongside you. The love that a mother gives her child never stops"

Thank you Michael for sharing this insight into your personal life.
If you like any of this man's work, you will LOVE this! Absolutely brilliant! :)
This man is a living legend and that much of a national treasure I'm pretty sure I overheard Nicholas Cage planning to steal him.
Michael Crawfords life is amazing also what he was willing to do to learn to get parts. and the way he tells you about himself is great
What an amazing, unbelievable man, that is some story! Sometimes sad but sometimes very uplifting.
Having seen Mr.Crawford in both Barnum & Phantom,made this much more enjoyable,to fill the gap's,so to speak,& for story & performance I give it 5 stars,where it fails is in having. no marker between chapters,so you have a reference point
to,put the book down,so to speak.
This was an easy listen, which was enhanced as it was narrated by the author. Michael Crawford gave an interesting insight to his personal and professional life. I felt like I was with him as a fly on the wall during the telling of life.
