I was a Genesis fan back in the early days and followed all the members as they did their own things. Phil was always a favourite and this auto-biography tells his whole story. Being read by Phil himself makes it so much more enjoyable. It's an easy listen. It's captivating. It's fun and it's informative, both in terms of Phil's life and astonishing career and his struggles as an ordinary, workaholic bloke who can't say no despite the effects this has on the families he's created and so obviously adores. I've always admired him and his candor, self depreciation and humour in this memoir make me like the old chap even more.
If this was the book I wouldn't have put it down. As the Audible I played it in the car, at work and at home over a two day period. A record for me. It's a "right riveting" listen!

Yes. It's an amazing look at the life and career of an Icon.
What did you like best about this story?
That Phil read it. No way it could have been any other way!
What does Phil Collins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
What doesn't he bring? It's read by the man who lived it. How could it be any better?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
I have been a Phil Collins and Genesis fan since I was a teenager and I think this book could quite possibly make me appreciate the music and respect Phil even more. Being read by him made it just that much better and I'm glad he did. It was by far one of the best read Audible books I've ever listened to.Thank you Phil for sharing your life and career stories and thank you for all your contributions to music, charities and the arts.
