And if they don’t… well, hopefully, at the very least you’ll get to have a good old laugh at my expense. I've been blessed to play characters such as Derek Trotter, Granville, Pop Larkin and Frost, who have changed my life in all sorts of ways, and taught me lessons that go far beyond the television set. In celebration of Sir David Jason's 80th year, 'A Del of a Life' relives Jason's extraordinary life and career from over 50 years in entertainment.

From a trainee electrician to one of Britain's most revered and loved actors, Jason shares heartfelt and hilarious wisdom with readers on subjects ranging from family to work, resilience to ebullience. That's why, when reading a book by someone who, along with the cast and crew that created Only Fools and Horses, has given you and different generations of your family so much pleasure, over so many years, that you are worried the book - perhaps even the author - may not live up to your expectations in the written word. During my life and career I have been given all sorts of advice and learned huge amounts from some great and enormously talented people. It's an engaging narrative filled with unique anecdotes and insights that deepen our appreciation of his life and career.And I've worked a few things out for myself as well, about friendship, ambition, rejection, success, failure, adversity and fortune. Sir David comes across as extremely likeable, humble, a hard worker, a trier and someone who always gives it his best shot.

I’ve been blessed to play characters such as Derek Trotter, Granville, Pop Larkin and Frost, who have changed my life in all sorts of ways, and taught me lessons that go far beyond the television set. Told with his characteristic warmth and wit, Jason shines a wonderful new light on the characters and shows that fans have come to love him for, from Del Boy to Granville, Larkin to Frost. A Del of a Life' is a delightful autobiographical recounting from the esteemed actor David Jason, a man who has held a special place in my heart ever since a chance meeting during my school years.

One sunny morning, with a letter of consent from my parents tucked away, I found myself standing near the set of 'A Touch of Frost. And I’ve worked a few things out for myself as well, about friendship, ambition, rejection, success, failure, adversity and fortune. An hour of tai chi first thing in the morning, an HIIT work-out with my personal trainer, a bowl of steamed kale and a handful of almonds for lunch, and then two hours of yoga in the afternoon followed by an ice bath – this is a routine which I’m sure would work miracles for anyone of any age, although I can’t be entirely sure because I haven’t myself adopted any aspect of it at any point. Such is the magic that the entire team of Only Fools and Horses created, that you can watch the same episodes over and over and they never seem to get old, the jokes no less funny than they were the very first time you heard and watched them being performed. It might not compete with the absolute best, but it's a heartwarming and captivating journey nonetheless.All that shines through in this book, and I found him, the book and his way of writing to be motivational, an inspiration and a joy to read. Even during the festive season, three generations of my family would sit around the TV set to watch and enjoy Only Fools and Horses' Christmas Special. From a trainee electrician to one of Britain's most revered and loved actors, Jason shares heartfelt and.

Through the pages of 'A Del of a Life,' David Jason brings back the halcyon days of 'Only Fools and Horses.

Having lived abroad for much of my adult life, I only really know Sir David from his time as Del Boy, a little when he was in Open All Hours and now I have read his book and learned he was Danger Mouse, from that too! I do not mind admitting that I read A Del of a Life - Lessons I've Learned by David Jason (real name Sir David John White) with more than a little trepidation.
