With BREAKING BAD, Bryan Cranston created moments that had the world on the edge of their seats and coined catchphrases that became famous all over the globe. Now, at last, we can learn of the man behind one of TV's most successful programmes ever.
Bryan Cranston's profile has skyrocketed, due to his portrayal of chemistry teacher turned drug manufacturer Walter White, for five seasons in the award-winning BREAKING BAD.
For the first time readers can discover how he beat off competition from Matthew Broderick and Steve Zahn for the role, to stories about the cast and life after Walter. Told with honesty and intrigue this will be Bryan's first - and - definitive autobiography. It is the ultimate book for the fans of BREAKING BAD.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Bryan Cranston has created a cinematic record of how an actor shapes a career and an identity and a legacy all at the same time. -- Tom Hanks
I loved this book. It's just the right mixture of funny, sad and heartfelt. If I'd known Bryan could tell stories this well, I would have had him writing episodes of Breaking Bad. -- Vince Gilligan
The highs here -and there are many -are meth-less but addictive. * KIRKUS REVIEWS *
This splendid, moving, heartbreaking memoir is doubly triumphant. It regales and entertains while at the same time providing inspiration and practical wisdom. A truly gifted storyteller, Cranston captures the reader's imagination and emotions from beginning to end. -- Doris Kearns Goodwin
By turns gritty,funny, and sad, this fiercely intelligent book from the Breaking Bad star defies celebrity memoir tropes. -- Entertainment Weekly
[A] substantial memoir from one of Hollywood's most introspective stars...anyone interested in acting will devour Cranston's savvy advice about honing one's craft and building one's career. -- Booklist
It's an engrossing first-person account by one of our finest actors and I couldn't put it down. -- Phil Simon * HUFFINGTON POST *
Fans of Breaking Bad will be glued to this riveting memoir, which looks at how he worked to create such a dark and legendary character. But long before Walter White, Bryan Cranston's life story was fascinating and dramatic. * IRISH COUNTRY MAGAZINE *
His memoir, A Life in Parts, shows him as a superb anecdotalist with an honest take on how he dealt with fame found later in life." -- Jonathan Dean * SUNDAY TIMES CULTURE *
a fascinating read and a satisfying look into Cranston's life -- Pip Ellwood * ENTERTAINMENT FOCUS *
A great guy reading his great book to you like you're both just downing session IPAs in some crack-in-the-wall bar no one else has found. Cranston's widely acclaimed memoir has been winning praise for its earnest account of a good man fighting to be the actor he always dreamed of, and his gentle, confessional honesty shines through all the more when spoken in his loveable folksy tones. * MR HYDE *
Candid and richly entertaining memoir -- Jane Shilling * DAILY MAIL *
