Hollywood legend and British national treasure Sir Michael Caine, now 85, shares the wisdom, stories, insight and skills that life has taught him in his remarkable career.

One of our best-loved actors, Michael Caine has starred in a huge range of films, including some all-time favourites, from the classic British movies Alfie, Zulu and The Italian Job to the Hollywood blockbusting Dark Knight trilogy, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Hannah and Her Sisters and Cider House Rules. He has excelled in every kind of role - with a skill that's made it look easy.

He knows what success takes - he's made it to the top of his profession from the toughest beginning. But as he says, "Small parts can lead to big things. And if you keep doing things right, the stars will align when you least expect it."

With brilliant new insight into his life and work and with his wonderful gift for story, this is Michael Caine at his wise and entertaining best.
