The behind-the-scenes story of how the Monty Python television series was written, and created, authored by the US Curator of the Graham Chapman Archives. This book, unlike any other about the team or series, was written with full, and complete access to Graham Chapman's private papers; scripts; and letters, thus allowing the author to explode some age-old myths; clear-up some age-old debates, and give a rare insight into the making of a team and a series, almost with Chapman as a working partner. This book gives the reader knowledge about much previously unknown information, and trivia - much that didn't appear in even the Python's own book of the troupe - as well as the ability to read actual unseen letters sent to the team by the BBC, and others. Monty Python Vs The World is the definitive written history of how the Pythons came together, created a TV series that changed comedy forever, and then (accidentally) changed the world.
