Críticas:

He's a natural storyteller as well as the Oscar winning actor we admire, and we bowl along happily...How one longs to have met him, which is the best thing one can say about any autobiography * Seven, Sunday Telegraph * Mr Caine is a charming raconteur....he writes with a quality that has grown rare among memoirists: good cheer * New York Times * Not much mileage in discussing warm receptions then, unless it's to wonder if a literary festival crowd has ever sounded more fulfilled than when Michael Caine finally said "you're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off" and "not a lot of people know that" halfway through his appearance in Cheltenham last weekend. * The Times * A truly incredible life story. * The Sun * To read Caine is to be in the company of an amiable, sentimental man who has achieved great success - and happiness - without appearing to be in the least smug. * Daily Mail, John Preston * a gold standard celebrity who makes the modern sort look cheap * The Times * warm-hearted and well written autobiography. Despite his fame this celebrity has always kept his feet firmly on the ground and this enjoyable book shows how he did it. * Sunday Express * Most compelling autobiography since David Niven's The Moon's A Balloon... he has brought this fascinating story up to date. * RTE Guide, Ireland * the peeks behind the silver screen make the book light up * New Statesman * A jolly amble from the Elephant & Castle to international stardom...there's plenty of satisfying name-dropping from a gold-standard celebrity who makes the modern sort look cheap. * Saturdays Times, Christmas Round-Up * Michael Caine's second work of memoir brims with his gift for genial anecdote, but this time there's a hint of sadness as he looks back * Sunday Times * Michael Caine fans will love his 'blow the bloody doors off' autobiography. * Fabulous * most memorable... This follow-up might have seemed over-indulgent were it not for his self-deprecating vignettes, told in a voice as distinctive as his spoken one, that led to critical comparisons with David Niven's classic, The Moon's a Balloon. * Independent * you can hear his distinctive voice throughout, his fans will enjoy the ride. * Choice * A truly incredible life story. * The Sun * To read Caine is to be in the company of an amiable, sentimental man who has achieved great success - and happiness - without appearing to be in the least smug. * Daily Mail, John Preston * a gold standard celebrity who makes the modern sort look cheap * The Times * uproarious and unflinching * Mail on Sunday * Michael Caine fans will love his 'blow the bloody doors off' autobiography. * Fabulous * Michael Caine fans will love his 'blow the bloody doors off' autobiography. * Fabulous * most memorable...

Reseña del editor:

'Uproarious and unflinching' Mail on Sunday'A truly incredible life story' The Sun 'Most memorable . . . told in a voice as distinctive as his spoken one' Independent 'Brims with his gift for genial anecdote' The Sunday Times * * * From the author of the bestselling Blowing the Bloody Doors Off, the original, definitive autobiography of British screen icon and legend Sir Michael Caine. It's been a long journey for Maurice Micklewhite - born with rickets in London's poverty-stricken Elephant & Castle - to the bright lights of Hollywood. With a glittering career spanning more than five decades and starring roles which have earned him two Oscars, a knighthood, and an iconic place in the Hollywood pantheon, the man now known to us as Michael Caine looks back over it all. Funny, warm, honest, Caine brings us his insider's view of Hollywood (where there's neither holly nor woods). He recalls the films, the legendary stars, the off-screen moments with a gift for story-telling only equalled by David Niven. Hollywood has been his home and his playground. But England is where his heart lies. And where he blames the French for the abundance of snails in his garden. A plaque now celebrates him at the Elephant in London. His handprint is one of only 200 since 1927 to decorate the hallowed pavement outside that mecca of Hollywood stars, Grauman's Chinese Theatre. A very British star, The Elephant to Hollywood is the remarkable full circle of Michael Caine's life.
