Publisher's Summary

Zombies in North London, death cults in the West Country, the engineering deck of the Enterprise: actor, comedian, writer, and self-proclaimed supergeek Simon Pegg has been ploughing some bizarre furrows in recent times. Having blasted on to the small screen in the gut-busting and now legendary sitcom Spaced, his enduring appeal and rise to nation’s-favourite-son status has been mercurial, meteoric, megatronic, but mostly just plain great.
From his childhood (and subsequently adult) obsession with science fiction, his enduring friendship with Nick Frost, and his forays into stand-up comedy which began with his regular Monday morning slot in front of his 12-year-old classmates, Simon has always had a severe and dangerous case of the funnies.
So, sit back, relax, and let Simon Pegg and his faithful robotic butler Canterbury take you on a spectacular journey of self-discovery. (Or, take this book to school and swap it for something cooler…) Dotted with a cast of memorable characters who have helped shape the life and career of a complex, dynamic and unstoppable man, Nerd Do Well is the joyous tale of a home-grown superstar and a local boy made good.

if you love simon pegg

I love Simon Pegg. His voice is pleasant and his thoughts are entertaining. it split into a story and biographical narratives. Would read again - especially if I could only hear the biographical parts.

Not a fan of the robot side story, but overall a great book. Pegg does a great work reading his book, he's a superb storyteller.

Just fantastic...

I laughed, I cried, I loved this. My first ever autobio and I wonder if any other could ever live up to it. Simon P is a gem; hilarious, witty, caring, ohhhh, gush gush, he's a genuine lovely guy and he takes you along on the amazing journey his life has taken so far with a fabby snort-fest sci-fi story sandwiched between the 'real' stuff. Finished it... started listening to it all over again. Fantabulous!

Fact meets fiction

This biography is definitely one of a kind.. Well.. Assuming pegg hasn't taken some one else's life story and published it anyway..

To hear the story of how pegg got to be the person he is now and the professional and personal things that shaped him is interesting and entertaining.

Coupled into the story line is the fictional simon pegg with a robot butler. Who has many adventures spliced into the story. They are most amusing and I admit I would like to see a book based solely on the fictional playboy pegg.

Having been read by the author this audiobook leaps to another level with pegg's knack for theatrics and voices really driving a great story.

Boring, lacklustre and uninspired

I've read 3 biographies in the past 2 months. This was the worst of them and the others clearly miles ahead. I recommend you reas Felicia Day's book or the Elon Musk bio instead.

Simon Pegg didn't seem very enthusiastic about his own life when narrating. I found the fictional parts a bit boring too. There were same interesting parts in the book but overall pretty boring.
