• "Skinner tells this amazing story in a rapid and murky manner"

    David Sexton, Evening Standard
  • "A rattling good read, written with humour and honesty"

    Lorraine Kelly, The Sun
  • "Skinner has a pathological need to tell the truth and that can only be to the advantage of any autobiography"

  • "Skinner has written his own life story - and it's a minor masterpiece . . . although his stand-up revelations are far more fun than anything in the tabloids, it's his poignant portrait of his working-class youth that makes it a classic of its kind"

    The Guardian
