The New York Times proclaimed this book one of the great Hollywood autobiographies, and understandably so. Though Niven did win an Academy Award (for Separate Tables), his life story is as memorable for his delightful anecdotes about his famous friends as it is for his acting ability. As the Times noted, he was a first-rate wit and personality.
"The trouble with that young man [David Niven] is that his body has gone to his head."
