Description

For the first time, comedian Jack Dee reveals the highs and lows of his early life and disastrous day jobs.

You don't just wake up jaundiced and bitter; it's taken Jack years of dedication and commitment to brew his unique cocktail of disillusionment and bile. What turned this once optimistic young man into a grumpy middle-aged git? Was it working in an artificial-leg factory? Or delivering incontinence pads for the NHS? Or was it the time when he was shunned by his peers for daring to thrash a one-armed man at tennis?

In this hilariously frank account of his life, Jack finally answers the question, 'So how did you get started in comedy then?' Along the way, he shares his blatantly unreasonable views on everything from personal trainers to boutique hotels, from the overrated moon landing to 'people who hold their cutlery the wrong way'.

Once you've listened to this book, you'll never think of Jack Dee as a smiling, happy-go-lucky, friendly face again.

Critiques

"Another comic with a darker edge is Jack Dee. Thanks for Nothing is the only celebrity autobiography currently worth listening to, streets ahead of the rest.

He is the perfect reader of his own self-deprecating, deadpan style but his story, of hard work and soul-searching, is gentler and less cynical than you might guess: you end up seriously liking the man."

Great!

Intelligent and Funny. Jack Dee is one of the funniest comedians around today. Although the book has a few slow parts, it is more than made up for by the rest.

Dee the grumps at his best

This has to be my favorite book at the moment. Jack has a knack of delivering his frustrations in dead pan funny way while telling his struggles.
Highly recommend.

Excellent reading..by the man himself

Any additional comments?

Very, very well read, interesting and funny.
I have listened to other interesting autobiographies where the reading was simply off-putting and disappointing.
Re-listend twice as I enjoyed this one so much.
