'a ludicrous...very funny - fusion of fact and comic fantasy' The Times '! a dense clootie dumpling of a book.' Sunday Herald '! hilariously irreverent !' Daily Express 'It's a masterpiece in tongue-in-cheek ego-mania, a comic tour de force or - if you are the ghost of Mary Whitehouse - a nasty, smelly, subversive book about an incurable bighead who shouldn't be on the telly, let alone in print.' The Journal, Newcastle upon Tyne '! should get a few old farts in Tunbridge Wells trying to work out how to send emails !
