What a treat to have Michael Palin read his own diary. The audio format of this book adds in another wonderful dimension to a great story of the ascension to fame, and the difficulties of keeping five incredible comedic geniuses focused and from flying apart at the seams.
The telling of his hosting of Saturday Night Live had me crying from laughter in my car. Other things such as John Cleese' apparent desire to branch out, Graham Chapman's alcoholism, and how Michael deals with the death of his father, are deeply touching and show that he is still an ordinary guy that just happens to be an international icon.
A great listen, and a great performance from Palin in the reading.

I've been a Monty Python fan, and Michael Palin fan for years, so this seemed like a potentially fun book to listen to.
I loved it! It really is laid out like a diary, but a very thorough one. The book takes us through the beginning of Monty Python, with the tv show, and then on through "The Life Of Brian" movie. That's sadly where it ends, leaving me wanting more more more!
Anyway, it's a must-read/listen for anyone that likes Monty Python.
