Testimonials for It's All News to Me: "Wry, self-knowing and sometimes delightfully acid, this is the ultimate insider's account of today's BBC. Jeremy Vine shows himself as good a writer as he is a broadcaster, but with more generosity of spirit than many of us. His best stories are often against himself and anyone interested in TV journalism will lap this up." - Andrew Marr
Testimonials for It's All News to Me: "A thought-provoking yet satisfyingly gossipy account of being a BBC lifer. I laughed out loud and winced at the same time as I recognised the moments of pride and exquisite humiliation that come with the job." - Fiona Bruce
Testimonials for It's All News to Me: "He has written a brilliant memoir detailing his adventures at the BBC...

Testimonials for It's All News to Me: "Anecdotes, gossip and memorable moments with Paxman and Mandelson mark an account of 25 years at the BBC... This is an engaging, skilfully paced tome, full of heart and cracking anecdote. Going by this, Vine could afford to feel just a little bit smug." - Observer
