A bit of a disappointment. I tend to use Frank Skinner's 2001 autobiography as a yardstick for comedian's efforts, and whilst that is quite a feat to match, this still fell well short. Too much focus on so-called tentative years, and too many "ooh, fancy that" moments: plenty of Star Wars obsessives DO NOT end up making Hollywood movies, so I think its safe to say any spooky signifcance is not, in fact, especially spooky. The fifteen most recent years of Pegg's life are crammed into 100 or so pages, which Pegg repeatedly points out is his intention, but, well, even Luke Skywalker spent a third of the trilogy as a bonified Jedi.
