Although it might seem a little obvious to say, this is perfect for any reader who loves Monty Python.

What I initially found amusing was the fact that the cast make no attempt to hide the fact that it is pretty much all just recycled content. Nothing much new and original, just another way to showcase the best of the movies and TV show. Thankfully, that was what I wanted from this Python book.

It's what you'd expect. All the living Pythons choose their favourite sketches, songs and illustrations. All the classics such as Mr. Cresote and The Lumberjack Song etc are there but there are a good number of selections which a die hard MP fan would know about like Consulting with Jean Paul Sartre or the Piranha brothers sketches. It good stuff for a beginner or a fan.
