'It seems there is nothing Andrew Lloyd Webber can't do. Besides his feats as a composer and creator of musicals, this memoir proves that he can write stylish and witty prose too.' - Sunday Times
'There is much of this autobiography that is, quite simply, hilarious...His is an authentic voice, the real deal, and you emerge feeling as if you have been allowed inside the tornado that is ALW.' - The Times
'I laughed, I cried, it was better than cats!' - Sloane Crosley, Vanity Fair
'An autobiography that has... wit, suspense, contemporaneity, audacity, and an appealingly shrewd sense of the occasion.' - Adam Gopnik, The New Yorker
'Charmingly idiosyncratic, surprisingly endearing and ruthlessly entertaining.' - Dominic Green, Wall Street Journal
