Fun Read. Would have liked a little less name dropping and more in-depth on his great films (and not-so-great ones too, More Jaws 4!)
Nice writing style and I learned many things about Maurice.

This memoir is strangely light on real's more of a snapshot of snippets about the movies he's been in, the people he's had dinner with etc - they type of info you'd get from an interview. It's a very easy, conversational style of book however I had no further sense of Caine as a person after finishing it. Disappointed. Caine is a superb actor.

I enjoyed this second memoir by Michael Caine, he has a fluid writing style and interesting tales to tell of his life in the movie world.
