Michael Caine's Guide to Life

Michael Caine

The winner of two Academy Awards, starring in over 160 films over eight decades, Michael Caine has found his place as not just one of the best screen actors of our times, but also one of our most loved and admired.

In conversation with writer and friend Matthew D'Ancona, he looks back over his long life, the good times and the bad, the setbacks he's learned from, the people who've inspired him, the changing times he's lived through, and what, at the foundation of it all, has meant the most to him, and what he hopes his legacy will be.

This is Michael Caine's funny, wise, entertaining and eternally optimistic guide to life.
