I really liked the idea of the book and was really impressed with the early chapters, that you can tell are written with verve and enthusiasm. As you read you can hear Alan's voice narrating as the style of writing fits perfectly. Loved the section on the Scouts and Alan's anecdotes about his celebrity pals; Bill Oddie, Sue Cook, Jim Rosenthal and a brilliant episode with Sally Gunnell. The book's weakness though are the patchy bits where we either get a re-hash of the TV series or overcooked scenes spun out over a chapter rather than a couple of paragraphs. It was OK but with polish could have been very good.
