Reviewed on Richard & Judy on Wednesday 28 February 2007.If youâ€™re a fan of Griff Rhys-Jones and there are thousands of us out there who are, then do read this, if for no other reason than to get more of a handle on him. Given his comedic talent and intelligence I thought it would be beautifully written but was a little disappointed. However, it doesnâ€™t detract too much as his stories about growing up during the â€˜60s and â€˜70s provide interesting reading, particularly for those who grew up during that time. Interesting choice for inclusion in the R&J promotion, but not the one Iâ€™d have gone for.
