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.

    "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.

    "Wonderful !"

    I can't praise this book enough, as someone else mentioned it is like sitting over a glass of wine or two with the great man himself, whilst he tells you wonderfully the stories that have made up his fascinating life. Deeply moving one moment and laugh out loud funny the next .....I can't recommend this book enough .. just buy it and enjoy every moment ...you won't regret it !

    "very entertaining"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Elephant to Hollywood to be better than the print version?

    I listen to audio books while I walk the dog , do the gardening, even while vacuuming.


    What did you like best about this story?

    What I liked best about this is the stories about the London I remember from my childhood.


    What about Michael Caine’s performance did you like?

    A very familiar voice as I have heard it most of my life .
