Read in January, 2012
This book was entertaining, and I enjoyed reading the stories of Rob's life, but it seemed to meander at times and spent a little longer than necessary in his childhood on things that didn't necessarily have much impact on his later life, other than giving him an anecdote to share. I also would have liked something on the past five years, particularly his Gavin & Stacey experiences, and there was nothing there. I guess that will come out in the next volume. Not sure why he'd release a book in 2011 that only ran through the early part of the decade, but that's Rob's call, I suppose. It really hit home reading this (as well as in James Corden's memoir) how difficult it is to break into show business. He certainly overcame some long odds, though it was a long road.
