They've never met himDec 10 2006
- Published on Amazon.com
What a load of rubbish. I was given this book thinking it was an autobiography. It became obvious fairly soon that not only does David Jason have nothing to do with the book, but these pompous idiots who wrote it have never even met him. Any fool can put together a compilation of old newspaper reviews, but to sell it as if they've sat down and spent time talking to him and finding out about one of our country's greatest actors is a travesty. DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. I emailed the authors sometime ago to let them know how crap it was but haven't heard anything back (surprise surprise). Considering their other masterpieces include both Jordan and Jodie Marsh's autobiographies, perhaps this is one of their best works. What a shame such an amazing talent is documented by a couple of numbnuts.
