    " Parky comes across rather bolshy and arrogant. Don't know why I was surprised - he IS a Yorkshireman! "

    " Quite a readable book & some interesting insights in to Parky, his life & someof his guests. However it does end up feeling like a list of the famous & used to be famous; I shouldn't be surprised I suppose as he's most famous for interviewing famous people "

    " I read this in dribs and drabs so to speak. It lends itself well to that sort of reading. I like Parky and I found him a very easy read. It was good to read about his life before the main show. I learned so many things about him! Of course he has interviewed some of the most fascinating and famous people of our time. I thought he might have given more away than he did about those celebrities but then again it's not that surprising that he kept it brief. Naturally Meg Ryan featured (what a disaster that was!) and I was surprised with Muhammad Ali being such an influence on him - and taking a chapter or so of the book. But what I did like, was that with each chapter, it was like I was tuning into one segment of his show. He showed us just enough to make us wanting more. On ya Parky! :) "

    " An interesting and very funny beginning describing his upbringing in Cudworth, Yorkshire is followed by a more pedestrian telling of life away from home. There are numerous amusing incidents which are told well, but by the end one is almost overwhelmed by the name-dropping. "
