His book on Jack the Ripper, Everyone Loves Jack is bloody good though. The angriest, rantiest conspiracy theory book you're ever likely to come across. Makes a pretty convincing case, too.

I liked "How to Get Ahead in Advertising". it was a little, um, messy but he sure made his point and I thought the performance of "the head" (acting wise) was pretty fantastic.
