    1. An enjoyable read but I guess JC is a much better actor than he is a writer. I found it a touch sentimental at times with a tendency to wander around the history rather than focus on a timeline and relate some interesting incidents within that. Perhaps I am a touch OCD. I did skim read it in front of the fire on a very cold afternoon - quite a good way to pass the time!
