Mark Kermode is a double-edged critic and this comes across in his book. Firstly, he is a breath of fresh air in the corporate world of film. He speaks his mind honestly with experience and knowledge. However, he is a teenager who never grew up. He obsesses over and holds in high regard things from his formative years. while others would jettison the Rubettes as they got older, he stays firm and unswerving in their defence. This book gives the reader the flavour of his opinions and persona which will divide people strongly. I have listened to him on the radio and turned him off when he becomes nauseating. The reader of the book will do the equivalent of reading and skipping parts. It is enjoyable entertainment. For me, it is more memoir than autobiography.
