Summary

Do You Know What? is an unexpectedly helpful, occasionally silly and absorbing brain dump on life and everything it holds, from one of Britain's most loved national treasures, Freddie Flintoff. 

In Do You Know What?, our favourite sportsman-turned-comedian-slash-left-field-thinker Freddie Flintoff expels an eclectic and entertaining smorgasbord of anecdotes, impressions, reflections, observations, rants, confessions and pearls of wisdom on all aspects of life's rich tapestry. As a prolific philosopher of life's most unfathomable questions, Freddie uses his own inexplicable experiences - from the sublime: giving up booze, shopping in Poundland with his family, exploring the wonders of the universe with his mates; to the ridiculous: wrestling with WWE's finest, singing in a musical on the West End, pranking teammates - to help us all gain the comfort of his life mantra: what's the worst that can happen?

Great listen, shame Freddie isn't reading it.

The book is a great listen,
Although the narrator is fantastic and does Freddie justice, I was a little disappointed when I first hit play that freddie himself isnt reading his book.

This would’ve been so much better read by Freddie.

For me this book has left me a little bit confused.

I find it hard to critique peoples work, when they’ve spent possibly a good amount of time writing something; however Freddie leaves too many of the salient points left open.

There are some amazing parts of this book where he talks about mental health and professional cricket. But for me the book sounds like one big room 101 style rant.

I appreciate that this is an autobiography so his points of view, should be his points that he is making. However the constant negativity to everything going on around us is hard to read for a whole book.

Good but bad

Flintoffs story interesting but somewhat repetitive and contradictory. Also didn’t much like the narrator. Much prefer it when it’s the actual person telling their own story. Come on Freddie !

grumpy opinionated man

I was bored in listening to this, although listened to the end and he won't be bothered with my negative review, but to be fair this was by far the worst audio book I've listened to.

Good but could have been better

The audio book would have been a lot better if Freddie had narrated it himself.

Interesting.

Great to hear him bare his thoughts on mental health and what he has gone through throughout his life.
