A lovely man who gets the best reactions from people of all nations. It's great to share in his travels. The journey is entertaining and the world seems a little more accessible when you tag along with Michael. I've been 'along for the ride' with him for over 20 years and never miss a trip. All the interesting people Michael meets know they are not being taken advantage of. His interviewees are at ease and never feel threatened or suspicious. Michael Palin is honest and never gets his laughs at anyone Else's expense. That's why you can trust him to entertain without exploitation. On his travels the focus is on the story and not on him. His humility is his big advantage over others who concentrate on being the stars of the show. Michael makes sure everyone else is the star. Kudos MP I've been a fan since I was a kid. Loved your Python days. Loved your career since the 80's too.
If you like travel, interesting people and geographically based tales served up with humour and a sympathetic ear check out any of Michael s great travel books.
This one sees him traveling 'Full Circle' right around the Pacific Rim and visiting many countries along the way.

In selecting 'Full Circle' I was only looking for something gentle on the ear for the car journey to and from work. What I got was pure entertainment. Having seen the tv programme it is easy to put pictures to Michael's words, but his use of those words makes that unnecessary. Because it is Michael Palin reading his own book one can feel the emotion that went behind the careful placement of the words on the blank page. I shall certainly be looking at getting his other travelogues in the near future.

Micheal Palin could make a stroll to ASDA sound like a epic encounter and he makes a well welcomed return here. The book is education, informative and funny.
