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 THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER Where Do You Come From It S One Of The Most Basic Human Questions Of All But There Is Another Question, Which Might Sound A Wee Bit Similar But Is Actually Very Different What Do You Come From And, Let Me Tell You, That Question Can Take You All Sorts Of Strange Places In Made In Scotland, Legendary Comic And National Treasure Billy Connolly Returns To His Roots, Reflecting On His Life, His Homeland And What It Means Then And Now To Be Scottish Full Of Billy S Distinctive Humour, Made In Scotland Is A Hilarious And Heartfelt Love Letter To The Place And The People That Made Him 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. this is the book all billy fans have been waiting for him telling his life and times from a wee boy in Glasgow to the best stand up ever billy as always will make you laugh and cry at the same time. keep it up big yin Read this in a couple of days,laughed out loud reading it,it s good when you are from,glasgow you know all he,is talkingabout,fantastic reading would recommend to anybody to read. As expectedFunny and emotinal I read this fabulous book in one sitting..couldn 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. 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 muchvisceral experience rather than thismellow affair Still.it s the Big Yinthe greatest Scotchman aliveand so worth your time reading it.
