A great and fun book, that adds to the TV series. Experiences also seen on TV are mixed with background information on how it was all made (a 'view behind the scenes'). Michael Palin has his own style in presenting and his own style in writing which shows in this book. Makes it a great read. In 2004 it does start to become a bit dated, but that is quite possible with a project from 1988.

Whether we're beret-bearing beatniks or Lexus-driving cosmopolitans, road trips still beckon. Gas up the tank, load up the trunk--it's hard to resist. But who has time to waste on wrong turns, getting lost, and bad choices? When it comes to finding fun, time is of the essence, so Jamie Jensen's guide takes the pain out of the road trip, be it across the continent or a Sunday jaunt. With directions to pit stops, scenic routes, bizarre museums, and the best apple pie stands, all you have to do is drive.
