'This book will be a story like no other because this will not be a story about a life rather a story about a search for a life.'
Chris Evans

The story of how one council estate lad made good, really very good, and survived - just about - to tell the tale....

Chris Evans' extraordinary career has seen him become one of the country's most successful broadcasters and producers and a well-known face in his own right.

This will be a fascinating and surprising life story from one of Britain's brightest and boldest pe... Download and start listening now!
