'a ludicrous…very funny – fusion of fact and comic fantasy'
'… a dense clootie dumpling of a book.'
'… hilariously irreverent …'
'It's a masterpiece in tongue-in-cheek ego-mania, a comic tour de force or – if you are the ghost of Mary Whitehouse – a nasty, smelly, subversive book about an incurable bighead who shouldn't be on the telly, let alone in print.'
The Journal, Newcastle upon Tyne
'… should get a few old farts in Tunbridge Wells trying to work out how to send emails … Mayall's disciples will love this nook and he might win over several million more followers with it.'
Sport Lads Mag (plus four stars)
'… full of fun and laughter, just like the man himself. A word of warning: don't read it in public …the belly-laughs may cause embarrassment.'
Nottingham Evening Post

LOVE this book! Rik just has a way with words that is undeniable. It's so conversational and interesting-- but be prepared for an ego-fest!Published 17 months ago by Elizabeth Dedman
If you think you know Rik Mayall this book will let you know you probably aren't too far off. This book is as crazy as his characters, loved every moment. Yo WILL NOT be let down. Read morePublished on April 23, 2012 by Cox
The joke here is that the biography is not really a biography: it is a culmination of psychotic self-promotion and inane repetition on just how great The Rik Mayall really is. Read morePublished on May 9, 2011 by R. Gobbe
