It took me a while to get into this book. Jonathan Ross writes exactly as he speaks, and it wasn’t until I could hear his voice in my head as I was reading that it really started to flow. Some of the statements and sentences seemed harsh and out of place, but as soon as you’ve got Ross reading it to you in your head, then it all fits together much better.

It’s a highly unnecessary book, guiding you through some small snippets of his life, with nothing particularly groundbreaking or designed to grab headlines. That’s partly what makes it a refreshing read. It’s not a boring autobiography, and it‚’s not written to shock. It may be written simply to generate cash, but it’s a bit of fun, and as long as you dive into it with an easy-going attitude, you won’t be disappointed.

For Ross fans, it’s a must. For anyone else, I’d advise steering clear, as it would be really easy to misinterpret what he writes as genuine rather than humour.
