"Thanks for Nothing is the only celebrity autobiography currently worth listening to, streets ahead of the rest. He is the perfect reader of his own self-deprecating, deadpan style but his story, of hard work and soul-searching, is gentler and less cynical than you might guess: you end up seriously liking the man."
