Even if the book was horrible I'd still give it 5 stars It's anything but horrible of course John Cleese has possibly made me laugh in his lifetime than anybody else Rowan Atkinson is a close second and the boys from Red Dwarf a close third Enough said There is nothing to add really If you like him you will enjoy the book
