A hilarious trip back in time through the 70s and 80s with Philip Glenister - star of Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes.

As DCI Gene Hunt, Philip Glenister has travelled back in time to 1974 and 1981 - and become a national treasure in the process. Now, in his hilarious and fascinating book, he takes the listener on a hilarious, personal journey through the 70s and 80s and compares them with how we live today. Was it really all so much better then? Or should we throw away our rose-tinted spectacles?

Along the way, Philip ponders many vital questions, such as: which decade had the best cars? Which had the worst haircuts? And exactly how heavy were the original mobile phones?

Already one of our best-loved stars, in Things Ain't What They Used to Be, Philip Glenister also reveals himself to be a witty, warm, and perceptive observer of life. If you're going on a nostalgia trip, you couldn't ask for better company. Download and start listening now!

    " An entertaining trip down memory lane, and I knew I was right about curly-wurlys being bigger when I was a kid. "

    " Actor Philip Glenister barrels through the 1970s and 1980s in a lightly funny and often sentimental stream of consciousness. Enjoyable, if short. "

    " Cracking little book with some properly funny lines. It may be based on the 70s and 80s, but most of the nostalgia works just as well for the decade or two that followed, as well. "

    " Philip Glenister aka Gene Hunt of Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes takes us on a trip down memory lane to revisit the 1970s and 80s.Not exactly a literary masterpiece but still amusing enough to keep a person entertained. "
