Thirty years ago, Noel Fitzpatrick graduated as a veterinary surgeon, unaware that he was about to become one of the leading veterinary surgeons in the world... Treating thousands of animals, many of whom were thought to be beyond help, Noel has had a rather extraordinary journey, learning how animals have changed his life, and the lives of those around them, for the better. Join Noel as he shares his rather moving and often funny tales about the animals he's treated and the unique 'animal people' he has met along the way! Reflecting on valuable lessons of Integrity, Care, Love and Hope, discover how these factors have sustained him through the unbelievable highs and crushing lows of a profession where lives are quite literally at stake. As Noel explores what makes us connect with animals so deeply, we meet Peanut, the world's first cat with two front bionic limbs! From eight-year-old therapy dachschund Olive to the gorgeous five-year-old Dobermann Odin, embark on some of Noel's most challenging cases - and of course meet his beloved companions Ricochet, the Maine Coon, and Keira, the scruffy Border terrier who is always by his side.

''So lithe,' they say. 'So spry and sparkling. So uncannily youthful. How on earth do you do it?' Well, what can I tell you? An hour of tai chi first thing in the morning, an HIIT work-out with my personal trainer, a bowl of steamed kale and a handful of almonds for lunch, and then two hours of yoga in the afternoon followed by an ice bath - this is a routine which I'm sure would work miracles for anyone of any age, although I can't be entirely sure because I haven't myself adopted any aspect of it at any point. Fortunately, during my life and career I have been given all sorts of advice and learned huge amounts from some great and enormously talented people. I've been blessed to play characters such as Derek Trotter, Granville, Pop Larkin and Frost, who have changed my life in all sorts of ways, and taught me lessons that go far beyond the television set. And I've worked a few things out for myself as well, about friendship, ambition, rejection, success, failure, adversity and fortune. With any luck, some of these thoughts and observations will chime with episodes and challenges you have faced, or are facing, in your own life. And if they don't... well, hopefully, at the very least you'll get to have a good old laugh at my expense. So lean back, pour yourself a glass, and try not to fall through the bar flap...' Delve into the hilariously funny but deeply heartfelt autobiography of the national treasure that is David Jason - a must-have read for all those who truly adore Del boy.
