    To be honest if it wasn't Billy and he hadn't had Parky's disease I'd give this two stars It's just a collection of his lesser anecdotes rather than a full blown autobiography Understandable given his condition There are no big belly laughs just a few stories that'll make you smilebut you'll get a flavour of his basic decency Pamela Stephenson's book on him is a much visceral experience rather than this mellow affair Stillit's the Big Yinthe greatest Scotchman aliveand so worth your time reading it

    I read this fabulous book in one sittingcouldn’t put it down and I laughed out loud regularly It reminded me that for all my travel and life as an expat I’m still Glaswegian to the core

    This is a excellent read very funny and extremely interesting I have read other books by comedians and none have been as well written as this book Billy is really a man of the people

    Lovely story to read on my kindle Amazing to read about his earlier life and the struggles he went through with such humour I found his work involved with the Clyde Shipyards particularly interesting and later on he wondered what had happened to the thousands of people layed off and what exactly happened to them and had they all found other jobs ?

    Comedy perception is a personal thing very subjective and for sure I have found Billy funny in the past I have fond memories of Billy & Albert with his casual vomiting conventional wars and excuses for getting caught whilst self entertainingThis book was bought based on other reviews with people reporting they had laughed out loud whilst reading it I wanted a part of thatBut instead I found a relatively interesting overview of Billy's childhood and early working life But then the book seemed to descend in to padding with a list of recommended books to read and a 7 page record of the dialogue Billy had with a gang of pensioners who had formed a group to keep active during retirementThe book gets three stars That's basically because it has ended up on the bedtime reading pile and has proved extremely useful in helping me drift off to sleep
