My Alphabet : A Life from A to Z
‘I always knew he was quite creative, but I had no idea he was so reckless.’ Lord Sugar ‘The thinking woman’s Bakewell tart … Witty, interesting and underpinned by a sharp intellect’ Jo Brand ‘This book is a total delight – as wise and witty and surprising as the man himself’ Gyles Brandreth From Nick Hewer, the star of Countdownand The Apprentice, comes a superb new memoir, taking the reader on a brilliant, amusing and evocative journey from A to Z of his life. As one of Lord Sugar’s closest advisers, Nick Hewer came late to wider public attention when he was recruited to work with him on The Apprentice, joining from the first series that aired in 2005 and staying with the show for ten seasons.
He quickly developed a reputation for his wry sense of humour, while his astute insights into the foibles and failings of the apprentices won him a cult following. Now, in Hewer’s first book, he takes us through his life from A for Apprentice (of course) to Z for Zed list. Along the way, he discusses Determination and how to get it, offers insights from growing Old, reveals his greatest Regrets, talks about Tottenham and much else besides.
There are chapters on Frights, Nicotine, the Queen and even one on Underwear! Equally at home on Question Time or Have I Got News For You, in the boardroom or chatting to a Mongolian policeman, Hewer shows himself to be a natural writer, too.
