‘Where do you come from? It’s one of the most basic human questions of all. But there is another question, which might sound a wee bit similar but is actually very different: What do you come from? And, let me tell you, that question can take you all sorts of strange places…’

In Made in Scotland, legendary comic and national treasure Billy Connolly returns to his roots, reflecting on his life, his homeland and what it means – then and now – to be Scottish.

Full of Billy’s distinctive humour, Made in Scotland is a hilarious and heartfelt love letter to the place and the people that made him.

Laughing out loud while I read…. I read this fabulous book in one sitting..couldn’t put it down and I laughed out loud regularly. It reminded me that for all my travel and life as an expat, I’m still Glaswegian to the core.

Not a classic autobiography…but still worth a read. To be honest, if it wasn’t Billy, and he hadn’t had Parky’s disease, I’d give this two stars. It’s just a collection of his lesser anecdotes rather than a full blown autobiography. Understandable given his condition. There are no big belly laughs – just a few stories that’ll make you smile…but you’ll get a flavour of his basic decency. Pamela Stephenson’s book on him is a much more visceral experience rather than this more mellow affair. Still….it’s the Big Yin…the greatest Scotchman…
