Only Fools and Horses is something I have turned to so many times when I needed a pick me up, a laugh, something to give you the kick up the backside to get on with it and give it a shot. Even during the festive season, three generations of my family would sit around the TV set to watch and enjoy Only Fools and Horses' Christmas Special.

In celebration of Sir David Jason's 80th year, 'A Del of a Life' relives Jason's extraordinary life and career from over 50 years in entertainment. One sunny morning, with a letter of consent from my parents tucked away, I found myself standing near the set of 'A Touch of Frost. The book offers fresh perspectives on Jason's journey, carefully avoiding repetition from his previous works. I've been blessed to play characters such as Derek Trotter, Granville, Pop Larkin and Frost, who have changed my life in all sorts of ways, and taught me lessons that go far beyond the television set.From a trainee electrician to one of Britain's most revered and loved actors, Jason shares heartfelt and hilarious wisdom with readers on subjects ranging from family to work, resilience to ebullience. It's an engaging narrative filled with unique anecdotes and insights that deepen our appreciation of his life and career. And I’ve worked a few things out for myself as well, about friendship, ambition, rejection, success, failure, adversity and fortune.

From a trainee electrician to one of Britain’s most revered and loved actors, Jason shares heartfelt and hilarious wisdom with readers on subjects ranging from family to work, resilience to ebullience. In celebration of Sir David Jason’s 80th year, ‘A Del of a Life’ relives Jason’s extraordinary life and career from over 50 years in entertainment. During my life and career I have been given all sorts of advice and learned huge amounts from some great and enormously talented people. His acting career has been long and varied: from his theatre work in the West End to providing the voices of Mr Toad from The Wind in the Willows, Dangermouse and The BFG. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.This book is a treasure trove of delightful tales for fans of David Jason or captivating autobiographies.

All that shines through in this book, and I found him, the book and his way of writing to be motivational, an inspiration and a joy to read. I’ve been blessed to play characters such as Derek Trotter, Granville, Pop Larkin and Frost, who have changed my life in all sorts of ways, and taught me lessons that go far beyond the television set. With any luck, some of these thoughts and observations will chime with episodes and challenges you have faced, or are facing, in your own life. I have never met Sir David, nor any of the others from the Trotter family or their circle of friends and acquaintances, but they shared our family living room with us on many an evening over many years, making us laugh out loud, often until it hurt, and even at times making us cry. I do not mind admitting that I read A Del of a Life - Lessons I've Learned by David Jason (real name Sir David John White) with more than a little trepidation.A Del of a Life' is a delightful autobiographical recounting from the esteemed actor David Jason, a man who has held a special place in my heart ever since a chance meeting during my school years. From Open All Hours to The Darling Buds of May to his starring roles as Detective Inspector Frost in A Touch of Frost and, of course, Derek 'Del Boy' Trotter in Only Fools and Horses. An hour of tai chi first thing in the morning, an HIIT work-out with my personal trainer, a bowl of steamed kale and a handful of almonds for lunch, and then two hours of yoga in the afternoon followed by an ice bath – this is a routine which I’m sure would work miracles for anyone of any age, although I can’t be entirely sure because I haven’t myself adopted any aspect of it at any point.
