Présentation de l'éditeur
The author of this book has never really known anyone famous, except a serial killer. He's just sort of bumped into a few inadvertently. Or, to put it another way, he’s been knocked out by one, peed on by another and had to pull a gun on one of the Great Train Robbers. He also lost Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, got drunk with Keith Moon and ‘arrested’ John Lennon. Always there to help others, Charlie’s even saved an old lady from a handbag swinging Lady Archer. And it was Jeffrey who went to prison

What Others Think of This Book
"This short book is a fun diversion from the daily grind"
"This is a rather humorous look at the culture of celebrity that I must admit had me chuckling from the first chapter"
"I found this book hilarious and literally laughed out loud several times while reading it"
" If you sometimes find yourself scratching your head at the fuss of “celebrity for celebrity sake,” then Bray’s rant will resonate and draw a chuckle"
"His concise prose had me howling especially over the Great Train robber singing on his way to his trial in a prison van"
"This book gets my five stars for what it is- an irreverent look at individuals in the mixed quality pile of people that become, for at least a short time, a brand, a household name"
"Charlie Bray gives a witty, lighthearted look at celebrity and what it takes (or rather, what little it takes) to reach this status"
"He begins by telling us some interesting encounters he had with celebrities when he was a Nottingham policeman, and follows with his tongue-in-cheek opinions of today’s celebs"
"Some of his stories about his own brushes with celebrities are priceless"
" a wry and amusing look at what makes a person a celebrity whether they deserve to be or not. Attention-seekers with no discernable talent are one of my pet peeves as certainly as they are Mr. Bray’s"
"Sometimes it is refreshing to just rant at what we think of the state of the world - or listen to someone else doing the ranting for us! A 5 star read for sheer relaxation value and fun"
"I had a great laugh reading this, so if your brain has been bogged down by too much tedious hard concentration, pick it up. I felt like I was attending a Joan Rivers comedy festival"
"I would have to agree with pretty much everything he says, having learned early on that all human idols have feet of clay"
