Bruce Forsyth is known across four generations as the face of family entertainment classics such as The Generation Game, Play Your Cards Right, and The Price is Right. His is an amazing story that spans more than two-thirds of the 20th century.

In the late 1950s, over half of Britain would tune into Sunday Night at the London Palladium, making Bruce a star in a few weeks. But it had been a long slog since his debut as 14-year-old Boy Bruce the Mighty Atom in 1942, then wartime work for the Red Cross and National Service after, and playing every theatre, concert party, summer season, double act, and review known to man. He's been at the very top ever since.

Bruce's first-ever account of his whole life is chock full of anecdotes, honest appraisals of tough times, failed marriages and affairs, comments on entertainment today, and what it takes to be a comedian at the height of his powers.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeri | 1/27/2014

    " I genereally do not like short stories but this is the exception. 5 separate short stories; all very different plots with all surprise endings. Great reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 1/22/2014

    " Great four short stories. I liked Veteran - about the middle-aged man, who was mugged by two thugs and than dies in hospital. Ugandan shopkeeper sees everything and is main witness in case of a murder of a veteran - and The Art of the Matter, where the sacked employee pays off his ex-boss by making him sell fake paintings. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rod Zemke | 1/18/2014

    " The first story is worthy of O'Henry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Garth | 12/11/2013

    " Five short stories, each ending with a delicious twist. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Missmath144 | 10/28/2013

    " 5 stories -- Most of the storied started out and even continued pretty slowly and not overly interesting, but the endings were great surprises. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenalyn C | 10/25/2013

    " Very good mystery stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim Puskas | 10/22/2013

    " This is clearly the best of Forsythe's collections of shorter stories; two within this set stand out: The title story and The Art of the Matter. Both of them feature delicious forms of revenge, whereby a villian gets his just deserts -- and no one does vengeance better than Forsythe! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terry Foster | 8/12/2013

    " Four novellas, the best I've read in years. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wayne | 5/23/2013

    " Five short short stories. They all seemed to have a twist. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kenny | 5/14/2013

    " The short stories were quite engaging, slightly reminiscent of Jeffrey Archers plot-twisters. However, the long-ish story, "Whispering Wind" was a disappointment, as it felt like a badly told love story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 10/8/2012

    " Fast paced and easy to read, loaded with twists and turns. Good choice for waiting room boredom. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 7/4/2012

    " Reading as an Audio book, currently on story 4 I think. All good stories although not gripping me as much as the other reviews had me thinking I would! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maxim Krizhanovsky | 5/31/2012

    " The "Veteran" story actually was excellent one, but I didn't like any of the other. "
