I'm Only Being Honest

2.81  ·  Rating Details  ·  68 Ratings  ·  7 Reviews
Teenage pregnancy, alcoholism, juvenile delinquency, absentee parents, soaring rates of drug addiction—modern Britain can often seem like a hive of social dysfunction. But Jeremy Kyle argues that all these national and very public issues can trace their origins back to a much smaller, private sphere: the family home. Over the last 20 years, he argues, traditional family va ...more

Jeremy Kyle should be our PM. He is being honest in this book. Very honest about the state of the UK. Alot of people will belive this is all being exaggerated but I'm betting most of those people will be on middle to high incomes and live in middle class areas. For the poor saps that actually have to live along side these wasters, most of the things described are common place. unfortunately the kind of people that would benefit from reading this book properly are unsure of what a book is so most ...more

I love Jeremy Kyle and believe his methods do work, the book was hard to read at times as it got very political, however, the gleans of information about Jeremy were well worth continuing reading the whole book and I am about to start his 2nd one!

His stance and take on Great Britain is honest and truthful and whilst I don't think he will make the changes he would like, it was inspiring to read what could be achieved if everyone put their head above the parapet like he has.

I really do think Jerem

The all-important book review! What a pile of shit! If I had known when I was buying this, that I wasn't buying an Autobiography, but a self-help book of tripe, I wouldn't have spent my money on it! All he does is preach on about what's wrong with the country, and what we should do in his eyes to make it right. It's like The Bible, as written by Jeremy Kyle. I thought I was buying an Autobiography. Boy was I wrong. The only interesting things I found out was that he grew up down the road from me ...more

I cannot figure out why so many people have given this book bad reviews. Most seem to hate it simply because they thought they were picking up an autobiography, but how is that a slight on the book? It's your own fault for not paying attention to what you're reading. I, personally, found this book very well-informed and thoroughly researched. Jeremy had done his research on all the topics he covered, from teen pregnancy to drug addiction. He made me laugh when talking about his once-owned greyho ...more

This books adds little insight to what you know of the man from watching his TV show. It certainly does not explain his drive or success.
