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.

    "Simply wonderful listening"

    A wonderfully relaxed, open, amusing, generous, irrepressibly entertaining unabridged autobiography. Apart from a bit of name-dropping (mainly of Hollywood power brokers I've never heard of who are long-term friends of the author), this is a breath of fresh air and the best autobiography I've listened to by a long stretch. No wonder it was a sell-out when published in 2010! One of my Top 3 Audible recordings. I've listened to it numerous times and it infallibly cheers me up, intrigues and entertains me - which can't be a bad thing! Superb.

    Story
    "I love Michael Caine, but ..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Elephant to Hollywood to be better than the print version?

    I didn't see the print version.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I was sorry the book ended as I very much enjoy Michael Caine's delivery and humour.


    What about Michael Caine’s performance did you like?

    I felt that he was talking to just me. I loved it when he had a bit of a laugh, or was emotional about something, i.e. his mother's death.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, that would be impossible to do.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the book, but was disappointed to find that it had many of the same stories as in his first autobiography.

    "Brilliant!"

    All the better for being read by Michael himself. Love it when he titters at a happy memory. And having heard him describe his family Christmas, I wish I could come too! Includes an insightful look at his roots and upbringing and how he progressed through his career. Nice too that he's a patriot who, although has enjoyed the good life elsewhere, wants nothing more than to settle down in England with his family around him.
