Nerd Do Well - Simon Pegg An interesting book. While his acting work appears throughout the book, it is given little space. An in depth look at his acting career will have to wait for another day, as this book focuses more on his life story, pre-fame, and the popular culture that influenced his career.

The book includes a fictional story in different type-face that runs throughout the book. Pegg as a rich strong guy with his hand-built robot. The combination of the fiction with some of his writing style sometimes overwhelmed the ability to tell when he is being truthful, and when he is just joking.

In the end it was/is an interesting look at what growing up in England is like and if read in that light, without looking for in-depth discussion on Pegg's work, then it might be a worthwhile read.
