    It's time to get serious with Britain's favourite funny man - Camp David, by David Walliams. "Will surprise, entertain, and allow fans and newcomers to enter the comic's uniquely brilliant world". ("GQ Magazine"). "Raucously funny and superbly written". ("Heat"). "Hilarious". ("Telegraph"). "A great read. My only criticism is it ended too soon". ("The Sun"). "A fascinating read". ("Star Magazine"). "Brilliantly written". ("Express"). "Fascinating stuff". ("Closer").
