The story of how one council estate lad made good, really very good, and survived -- just about -- to tell the tale! 'I see this book as an account of boy who climbed a glorious mountain and then dug himself a huge black valley for no good reason other than he didn't know what else to do.' Chris Evans Chris Evans' extraordinary career has seen him become one of this country's most successful broadcasters and producers. From his early years on Manchester's Piccadilly radio to Don't Forget Your Toothbrush, The Big Breakfast and TFI Friday for Channel 4, Chris changed the TV landscape during the '90s and on BBC Radio 1's Breakfast show and as owner of Virgin Radio, ushered in the age of the celebrity DJ. His relentless pursuit of success and subversive style were his trademarks. But then 'the Chris Evans show' and Chris Evans' life became frighteningly blurred at the edges. The more outlandish the antics whether on or off screen or air, the better, for a while at least. The celebrity girlfriends, nights out drinking. Rolling into work late with 7m listeners waiting. For someone who took such pride in his work, what had happened? The country loved him so why wasn't he happy?Chris Evans' autobiography is a funny and frank story of how a boy from a Warrington council estate who started work at 13 and held down 20 different jobs by the time he left school; became the most widely acclaimed broadcaster of his generation. From the early death of his father that literally set him to work, to his meteoric rise in TV and radio, he will talk openly about the highs and lows of his, at times, turbulent career and how his drive to succeed impacted his personal life. This will be a fascinating and surprising life story from one of Britain's brightest and boldest personalities.

Could'nt put the book down onnce started. Really good story which shows how much has been achieved and all the great things that have happened over the years. Looking forward now to the final installment with the next book and am sure this and his current book will be a hit.

 Great Read

I recently finished reading this not normally interested in Chris Evans but thought I would give this a go.. A great read, found out lots of stuff I never knew about Chris. He is very inspiring in business, a bit of a maverick in his financial business ventures to say the least. i did not realise just how much of babe magnet he was too!

 Couldn't put it down

I was dubious about this purchase. I'm not much of a reader and can count the books i've read cover to cover on one hand! Once I started reading I just wanted to keep on going, reading it before work, after work, in bed. Great read, great book, whens part 2 out?

 An inspirational read

Wow this book was outstanding. I have a great deal of respect for this hard working ginger chap after reading this first half of his life story. He must have something about him as he has no shortage of foxy chicks after him. I couldn't put it down and look forward to reading the next book. Nice one Chris!
