The Difficult Second Book


Formats & editions


Further hilarious musings and anecdotes from the motor-mouth British Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles

Superman was a hero. Clark Kent was a geek.
Spiderman saved lives. Peter Parker sold photographs to his local paper.
Chris Moyles entertains 8 million people each week on BBC Radio 1. Then he goes home and plays Xbox on his sofa, while wearing only his underpants.
Welcome to the real world of Chris Moyles.
The Difficult Second Book tries to get to the bottom of the double life of this award-winning broadcaster and hapless human being. You'll find out just what he thinks of his radio show guests - some of the most famous people in the country. You'll hear about his showbiz nights out and celebrity neighbourhood. You'll also learn why he is obsessive about washing up; why he lies to the pizza delivery man; and generally what it's like being a part-time famous person and a part-time nobody.
Love him or not, Chris Moyles is part of the fabric of our nation and a proven best-selling author. A refreshingly honest, caustically dry and quick-witted commentator on daily life, The Difficult Second Book is a highly-entertaining read from start to finish.

About the Author

Chris Moyles

Chris Moyles was born in Leeds in 1974. It was a time when 70s clothes and music was all the rage. The youngest son of two fantastic parents, Chris was encouraged to pursue his ambition to make it as a national radio broadcaster.


In 2003 Chris achieved his childhood ambition and was given the biggest show on the station, the legendary Breakfast show. In less than 2 years, he had added over a million new listeners and made the show the number one show in London for 15-24 year olds. Something Radio 1 had never achieved before. Currently the show has over 6 million people tuning in each week.
