Nope. This book just did not do it for me.
I guess to someone who knows Barry Cryer, it could be interesting to read, but for someone like me, who has no clue who this person is…reading about his day to day life felt a bit…you know…draaag…
Quite Honestly, I got this book simply because the name attracted me. It got me wondering if this was indeed as good as the title…And the fact that I got the Hardbound copy of the book for Rs. 10 did make the deal much sweeter!
But all in all..the only thing interesting in the book, was the title. I had a real tough time sweating it till the end.
