Publisher's Summary

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.

    "A warm, relaxed and enjoyable listen"

    Excellently narrated by Michael Caine himself, I found this comparable to David Niven's wonderful autobiography ' The Moon's a Balloon'. It gives an insight into one of Britains best loved actors and the world of film-making.

    "What a great book"

    It was great that Michael Caine narrated this book as when you got his giggles at certain stages it reall got to me and you realise he is truly down to earth and fun. Great book go and buy it

    "Excellent"

    A really great, intelligent and well constructed ramble through an Actor's life. Very entertaining and often highly amusing. I listened to it in one week on my daily 10 mile run in the dark at 5am round the country lanes and having Michael Caine for company was extremely pleasant and I will miss him!

    "Highly entertaining. a pleasure to travel with."

    Michael entertains you both on screen and off. this book was an is a pleasure to listen to as he accompanies you on your travels. I really felt for him as in his own words described his daughter in an incubator holding his finger. its not all melancholy. there is an abundance of humour. to the point even he has a chuckle as hes reading it. a nice touch of the producers of the recording. overall I am happy I purchased this and will come back to it at some point in the future as if visiting an old friend.

    "Comfy shoes"

    I wasn't sure about this but it was like putting a comfy pair of shoes on. Loved listening to it at all times of the day for a quick burst of Michael and having finished it will listen again. Michaels giggles are infectious and he's just so easy to listen to. Lots of snippets I never knew and my husband has dipped in from time to time and always comments favourably too. Nice one Michael thank you

    "Reading, not 'Narration'"
    Any additional comments?

    A great and interesting life story, totally let down by the performance. Unfortunately Mr Caine appears to be just reading the text, and disappointingly, not very well - you could even hear the pages turning ! It got very annoying after a while - but despite this, it was interesting enough to finish.

    Story
    "Proper star and a proper bloke."

    This is a great book, written by a great man. He comes across as a likeable, down to earth bloke who through dedication and hard work has become that over used word, but deserved in his case, a superstar.
    He writes with humour and a candidness often missing by big name authors. He's occasional laugh or catch in his voice when he is reading about his mates is very moving. He says in his book that he'd like to think his fans like him because he likes a laugh. It's true for me. I've had a number of these books now and this is the best yet.
    Well done Michael.
