HASH(0xa88a9d8c) out of 5 stars Nice photos 'n' all but when the man ain't dead, this ages fast. Oct. 6 2009
By Paul Lawrence - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I learned a new word via reading Michael Palins books. Dromomaniac. Apparently it means someone addicted to travel. And Palin is certainly that. As for myself - you could say I'm an armchair dromomaniac!

Anyway, my wife bought this for me some years ago as a christmas present and it was fun to read the anecdotes of his life and had I not already been a big fan of Monty Python I probably would of gotten a lot more out of it. As it was much of this and more was already known to me due to my love of British comedy of the 50's/60's/70's. However I did enjoy it and the photographs of scenes from his journeys for which he has more lately become known are of course stunning.

As my heading says however there is an inherent problem in doing a biography on a guy who isn't dead. In fact on a guy who appears to be in rude health and has since completed a couple more of his adventure series. And anyone really wanting to know about Palin would probably be best served by getting copies of his self penned 'diaries' series which he has started to compile.

So without meaning to dismiss this release, it is very much coffee table in aspect and a bit short on real insight and as each new adventure of Palins comes along this book gets increasingly outdated.
