'A must for film fans' News of the World 20100418 'A hugely entertaining memoir' Yorkshire Post 20100416
Hi! Believe it or not, I'm a world-famous actor. No really, I am. Hey! Don't put the book back! Let me explain . . .
You may not recognize my name-or my face for that matter-but it's very likely you've seen me at work. I've managed to cram quite a bit into my thirty-year acting career. In fact, I've helped put more backsides on cinema seats than Will Smith or Tom Hanks.
Who else can say that they've helped destroy a Death Star? Defeated an evil sorceress? Taught magic to Harry Potter? Became a Jedi Master? Reluctantly hitchhiked across the galaxy in search of the answer to the Ultimate Question? Or embarked (six times, no less) on a psychotic killing spree as a gold-obsessed leprechaun? I've also performed in a jazz club with the late, great Ray Charles and been kicked in the head (twenty-three times) by Ricky Gervais, who has also asked me to play a fictionalized version of myself on the sitcom Life's Too Short.
You may also have noticed that, at three-foot-six, I am ever so slightly below average height. My genes are arranged in a vaguely peculiar manner, which means I have a disorder that no one can pronounce (spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenita-go on, try!) and very few people understand. This comes with its own trials and tribulations-particularly when my wife and I tried to start a family-but also in an everyday kind of way-surviving a supermarket shopping trip, getting into fights with drunks, that sort of thing.
So, without further preamble-except to add that George Lucas, Carrie Fisher, Val Kilmer, Ron Howard, Ricky Gervais (amongst others) have chipped in-I urge you, discerning reader, to read on and discover what life is like when it really is too short. At the very least, George Lucas will finally explain why there really is no underwear in space-and who wouldn't want to know that? -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.
Nicht nur Fans der Filme Star Wars, Willow, Narnia, Harry Potter, Per Anhalter durch die Galaxis, Leprechaun, u.s.w. kommen auf ihre Kosten indem sie witzige und interessante Storys aus dem Backstagebereich erfahren;
dieses Buch steckt einfach voller positiver Energie und Optimismus und zeigt wie es möglich ist trotz harter Schicksalsschläge das Leben anzunehmen und seinen Weg zu gehen.
Dieses Buch liest man mit einem lachenden und einem weinenden Auge und man weiß nie was einen auf der nächsten Seite erwartet.
The fact that he is little, is both integral and not important at all to his story, so my main lasting impression is indeed his career, namedropping and humorous way this book is told.

Warwick has a condition that makes him shorter than average. However, he uses the book to both educate readers and talk honestly about his life and the challenges - as well as opportunities - he faces due to his height. As a "Hollywood" biography, this also puts Warwick in a unique position. He's obviously famous and is friends with many stars, but he also comes across as a normal person, not a Hollywood jet-setter. His anxiety over applying for jobs will sound familiar to most readers. It's a great perspective on the movie industry and life.
And Warwick does have some great stories to tell, albeit he never trashes any of his coworkers. He's generous with praise but also comes across a straightforward. If anything, this book might enhance the reputations of a few actors, such as Val Kilmer. The best parts of the book were of course his Star Wars days and some of the amusing anecdotes about his co-stars.
Definitely a worthwhile read if you're a Star Wars/Willow fan, but also worth checking out if you like autobiographies of actors.
Bottom line: read this book. You won't regret it.
