Nerd Do Well
Zombies in North London, death cults in the West Country, the engineering deck of the Enterprise: Simon Pegg has been ploughing some bizarre furrows in recent times. Having blasted onto the small screens with his now legendary sitcom Spaced, his rise to nation's favourite son status has been mercurial, meteoric, megatronnic, but mostly just plain great.
From his childhood (and subsequently adult) obsession with Star Wars, his often passionate friendship with Nick Frost, and his forays into stand-up which began with his regular Monday morning slot in front of his 12-year-old classmates, this is a joyous tale of a homegrown superstar and a local boy made good.

Listened to the audiobook, sadly abridged. But, a lot of fun and plenty of interesting recollections. Strangely, Nick Frost didn't feature as much as I would have expected. Think I'll have to get the full book, too. Read full review

Another fun read. I'm a huge fan of Simon Pegg and his work. Shaun of the Dead and Spaced IMO are two of his best and they both are discussed quite a bit in the book. I thought the side story running through it was amusingly clever. Read full review
