Given all this, I'm not sure why I bothered with the book. It was cheap - about a quid at Oxfam - and I was curious.
It's a diary of his life and covers the period in his life between getting sacked as editor of The Daily Mirror and being appointed as a judge on America's Got Talent. The same period also roughly - and presumably coincidentally - covers the time between separating from his first wife and starting a relationship with the woman who became his second.
The theme of the book is celebrity. Morgan, casting around for a way of earning a living, decides that he would like to become a celebrity and work in television. The book discusses the ways he attempts this. This includes a flop current affairs programme, Morgan and Platell (which was modelled on those tiresome US-style programmes that pits opposing views). I was surprised to read that Morgan was supposed to be the left-wing viewpoint in this setup.
Despite all of this, the book is an entertaining read. Piers Morgan is clearly not a stupid man and neither is he devoid of self-knowledge. What he chooses to do with that intelligence and self-awareness is a bit depressing but amusing to read about.
