Have been dipping in and out of this book, it's very good. Nothing saucy (yet) but a few raised eyebrow moments.
These go from 1969-1979 so I'm assuming as Michael is not one to look a gift horse in the mouth there will be another volume in the future.

I'm about to start reading this - I have the hardback version so needed to do a few exercises to build up my arm muscles first... Smile

Its taken me about 3 weeks to read - I'm nearly finished it now. Interesting book but I found myself getting a bit lost and times trying to remember who some of the people were. BTW a box set of Michael's 6 travel books is currently available for 25 in the BBC Shop's sale

is there anything in it about his dad or is it just about his travels?

Blimey! This part of the forum's a bit quiet, I opened this expecting a discussion on the 2nd volume which appeared before Christmas and which I've just finished reading today. This one has taken a bit longer to get through than its predecessor - probably because I found it less interesting as a result of not being as familiar with the films being made at the time covered by the book (80-88) whereas I had a better background knowledge of the Python era. I assume we'll get a 3rd volume covering the travel shows at some point: Halfway To Hollywood ends as MP is about to set off on the "80 Days Around The World" journey.
