Four members of MP wrote separate introductions - those are funny. The book itself is boring after not very long.

Since the movie for which he is describing the making was done 30 years ago, one had to wonder why this fellow waited so long to convert his notes, taken while an actor in the film, into a book. He had in the interim produced five other books about Monty Python. Perhaps the answer is because even he realized it wasn't going to be a terribly engaging reading experience. Still, there is some interest in anything about MP so he finally produced this tome.

Perhaps part of the problem is that the movie was not terribly difficult to make (or so it seems) - there isn't any "drama" (at least not in the first 100 pages) and there isn't much relating of humorous stories, either. The days he describes all seem one like another and while I'm sure it was great fun to be there, isn't so great to read about.

Alas.
