    As Mark Radcliffe says in his introduction to this book Noddy Holder is probably the closest thing pop music has to a national treasure. If you've ever heard or seen him interviewed you'll know that Holder has a vast fund of anecdotes. The World According to Noddy is a collection of these touching on aspects of life in and out of showbusiness. You'll likely have come across some of them before but that doesn't make the book any less entertaining.

This man really should be in politics!

    Great read typically Noddy Holder. it seems like he's sat chatting with you. It's his own thoughts, words, memories and his interpretation of life and the modern world in general. This is far more than just another Slade member autobiography Great read typically Noddy Holder. it seems like he's sat chatting with you.

    Fun to read if you're a Slade fan, but in the end a bit of a moralizing booklet. Again, the Slade bits were fun, which amounts to about thirty of the hundred and fifty pages, the rest is neither fun nor interesting. He's a likeable chap, but he hasn't really got anything interesting to tell. Fun to read if you're a Slade fan, but in the end a bit of a moralizing booklet.

    It was a joy reading about Noddy and his life and views. Only reason I gave it 4 stars was because I would have liked to have seen some pictures.

    This is a good book to read, but I would of preferred a book that told the the trials and tribulations of noddy when he was with slade. But a good book for a bit of a laugh.

    A fun, cheeky and interesting read from the Nation Treasure that is Noddy Holder. It's very much as it says on the tin, part autobiographical, part life lessons, part insights and personal thoughts on the world we live in, topped off with a whole lot of common sense from Noddy. It maybe a generation thing, but I did find myself nodding a lot and agreeing at what Noddy has to say about social media, celebrity and, not so much politics, but the way the country is run... or not as the case maybe.

There's that hypothetical question about which people you would like to share a dinner party table with for an evening of fun and interesting conversation, well, I'd now like to add Mr Holder to that list.

    This is a really cheery tome. There is a lot of wisdom in here, a lot of focusing on what’s really important and not sweating the small stuff. And if that wasn’t enough, as well as commenting on everyday life, Noddy has amassed a wealth of great anecdotes about other musicians and people in the public eye. He also has seventy pairs of shoes. Plus he has some suggestions of how to run the country that are frankly better than anything I’m hearing from the major political parties.

This book passes the “Shall I lend it to my Mum test” because it’s a bit cheeky in places but doesn’t go too far. Get down and get with it!

    This was just the sort of thing that I would recommend for a holiday read. Funny as hell, and Noddy isn't afraid to speak his mind on things that really matter to him. I did like the idea of making the Birmingham and Black Country dialects England's second language(s) and the tales of the various events that have marked his illustrious career.
