This is Michael Palin's sixth book. I applaud him for having the forbearing to keep a running diary during probably the most crazy period of his life: The formation and success of Monty Python. One reads about their not-so-humble beginnings to their million-dollar-grossing hit films. This 650-page book encompasses a glimpse into the day-to-day lives of arguably one of the funniest and most famous British comedy teams of all times. Read Palin's insights on all the different personalities of the team's members... their likes and dislikes... their loves and losses... the rewards and tolls of making it big in an industry that talent and timing is not always enough. I always thought that Palin was the most grounded member of Monty Python and I think this book is confirmation. To be creative and to be able to sustain that creativity for a long period of time and to be able capitalize on it, for most, is only a dream. This book is a must-read for the Monty Python fan and definitely for the anyone who is considering or has ever considered show business as a career.
