The Pilkington philosophy

On the free podcast by Ricky Gervais available on the Guardian website there is a bit of the dialogue when Karl Pilkington, who has a book out about himself The World of Karl Pilkington, says that he is refusing to do promotion for the book. His attitude makes a refreshing change to the numerous celebs on the television currently plugging their books for the Christmas season.

“I have bought books without people telling me to buy stuff,” he adds ”I am sick and tired of putting tele on or the radio and having people telling me you have got buy this or you have got to buy that. I don’t have to do anything I’ll have a look myself when I am in a bookshop.”
