...rest assured the classic moment from Fawlty Towers with John Cleese beating the hell out of an obstinate 1100 Estate is mentioned, as are the classic movies Genevieve and School for Scoundrels. All in all, it is fun, but don't expect too much.

The book works more like an invitation to join the man for a few pints of Newcastle and enjoy the stories he’s been punting around to close friends for years.

Most chapters . . . are so brief and smutty that they read like they were scrawled on the back of condom wrappers. One is simply titled ‘The Anal Intruder.’
