Review

Jamie’s Journey teaches us the importance of connecting and communicating with our children-with the absence of today’s technology. Jamie shares her “Gems” of advice to other teens and parents about the life long rewards of truly spending time and connecting with our parents and friends! Jamie Goodman Testimonials

"A valiant first effort by a rising young star. Look for big things from her." - Randy Gage, Author of the New York Times bestseller, Risky Is the New Safe

Jamie takes us inside the mind of today’s teens and demonstrates the importance of spending more time with our children, building relationships and memories that will last a lifetime. Every parent and teen should read this book… together! -Shep Hyken, New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author

This book is funny, instructive, adventurous and more importantly written by a daughter that tells it like it is and a Dad that tried to give his daughter the trip of a lifetime. He succeeded when Jamie declares “Dad and I make a great team". That is a great compliment. Wonderful read, I highly recommend it! -Dr. Joachim de Posada Author of the book Don’t Eat the Marshmallow...Yet

Adventure travel usually means journeying to primitive and inhospitable places. But what could be more adventurous than being a 50-year- old father traveling with your 16-year old teenage daughter? Dr. Rick and Jamie Goodman travel around the world and share discoveries about different people, each other, and themselves. Jamie’s Journey is a book everyone can relate to and learn from. -Bruce Turkel, branding expert, FOX Business contributor, and Author of Building Brand Value.

A felt like I was traveling with Jamie on her journey! A very honest read from a teen's perspective with side commentary from Dad. At times I felt as though I was reading Jamie's private diary as she holds back nothing. Her insight is a great view into a teen's heart and soul. You will love her book! Refreshing and enjoyable!

The book is endearing and funny. It reminds me of the odd couple, which is what an adult traveling with a teenager is. Jamie describes her dad in colorful terms, whether it's New York behavior, when they're having "a moment," or when she sees him being pushed around by a tiny Asian lady. What makes the book really work is the undercurrent of love the author shows for her father and how she finds him entertaining. It's filled with useful tips on how to travel with a teenager (or a parent) and how to deal with some unexpected circumstances New York style. It's a well-written and enjoyable book, especially when you consider that the author just turned 17 years old.

Jamie and Rick, this book touched the depth of my soul. It made me smile and it brought me some tears. You both are so very fortunate to have had this experience. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, feelings and experiences with the world. I actually never had a desire to go to Israel prior to reading your precious words. Jackie is smiling down upon the both of you. No doubt. No question.
I just might need to make some "adventure time" with my son for his college graduation gift...If he'll go for it.

Wow! This book has changed how I view life. How I will live it from now on. It reminded me to slow down. Enjoy each moment. Cherish the people who pass through your life. Jaime Goodman is a wonderful writer. She is blessed to have a great relationship with her Dad. I really hope Ms. Goodman continues to publish more amazing experiences.

Having just been in Israel I can so relate to all your daily events. It is really incredible the way you and your dad bonded on this trip. I suggest any parent contemplating a trip with their teenager read this book. A very quick read. I highly recommend this book.

Jamie's Journey is a fun read with some very important lessons about the relationship between a teenager and her dad. In a time when most teens want to hang out with their friends or play on their tablets and smart phones, this book drives home the reminder that parents and children still need to spend quality one-on-one time together. The adventures Jamie and her dad experience while travelling around the world will leave every father and daughter wanting to take their own special trip, to strengthen and further build their own relationship. What a great book. Highly recommend!

I would say the biggest issue with people who try to write something personal is that they try to make the material something it is not in fear of not being adequate. I think the most powerful part of the literature is that it sounded like Jamie Goodman, from cover to cover that sounded and was written just like Jamie would have told me. Moreover, I think the way Jackie was was tied into the story made for a way more personal attachment to the adventure Jamie embarked on. Despite being sub-100 pages, Jamie's book holds substantial value; it is a good for people traveling Europe, provides satire from her and her dad’s moments, and most importantly it links the ambiguity between Jackie’s not so known past to her and her right now. Overall it is a definite read and I am thoroughly impressed.
