I like Michael McIntyre, I like his comedy and have seen him perform live. I enjoyed this book, but it did read a little like another one of his shows, with lots of jokes, several of which I've already heard him perform. The first half of this book was spent talking about Michael's young life, then it rushes through his seven years trying to break the comedy circuit, during which he meets and falls in love with his wife and has a couple of kids. I enjoyed it, but wish that some of the stories went a little more in depth, while other parts seemed to linger a little too long. It was a nice easy read and I finished it in a couple of days, but it left me feeling like I didn't learn much more about his life than I already knew.
