Frankie's life from when he was born up until the book was published a few years ago. As his life story unfolds we are constantly bombarded by Frankie's biting opinions/anecdotes. If you love Frankie's work then it's an essential read. My only real complaint is that he does not narrate it and it would have been so much better if he had. Instead we get a perfectly competent Scots narrator but it's not quite the same - it's a bit like listing to his stand up routing delivered by someone else.

An insight into the soft underbelly of one of Britain's most acerbic and edgy comedians. Listeners will have fun discerning what is genuine from what is sheer hyperbole.
There's some good laughs in it as well, just when the narrative seems to lull Frankie smacks you in the chops with some bizarre observation that will make you laugh out loud and continue listening. -- Kinda like Stockholm Syndrome, you begin to empathise with your assailant.
Biography is merely the thread from which hangs the frankly disturbing, but not unintelligent, mindset of this deeply intriguing and engaging individual. I've already purchased his second book and look forward to the experience.
