"If you've seen the TV programme and thought it wasn't worth reading the book, think again. Michael Palin has a deft eye for his surroundings and a succinct narrative style which is both entertaining, original and informed. He makes even the darkest of moments seem brighter and the book is full of wry observation and snippets of information. Never boring, and indeed the sense of adventure does come through, maybe because no effort is made to conceal the fact that the party is nothing more or less than a BBC crew. Some great photos compliment the pros and help bring the book alive. Highly recommended."
