The Book of Fred Synopsis
The Book of Fred is filled with anecdotes, observations and the odd opinion all told with Fred’s trademark humour and no-nonsense style. Fred’s approach to life draws on the sublime (his series winning performance in the 2005 Ashes) and the ridiculous (singing Elvis Presley’s ‘Suspicious Minds’ in front of a live audience), from highs (making the transition to top TV presenter) to occasional lows (accidentally upsetting the lovely Bruce Forsyth), from the profane (discussing Shane Warne’s barnet with Hollywood royalty) to the profound (why ‘having a go’ leads to self-respect). Throughout, Fred shares his code for success, happiness and a life fully lived – and gives his readers a laugh, some joy, and (the occasional) pause for thought along the way.
