Revisited this book on a whim, saw the highly critical first place review and have a couple comments to make.
This book was indeed quite possibly the most life-changing book I've ever read. I ended up traveling to all 7 continents in one year as a direct result of reading this (including taking an expedition vessel to Antarctica), buying incredible gear on Tynan's recommendation which has held up unbelievably well (I count the Deuter Futura 28 and Mont-Bell ExLight Down Jacket as two of the best purchases I've ever made - both are still in incredibly good condition and I use them on an almost daily basis).
Another important note - I wasn't friends with Tynan at the time of my first review [I was 18 then -- 22 now], but I reached out to him shortly after I returned from my first trip to Africa where I climbed Kilimanjaro, we met over tea in San Francisco, and ended up traveling to Japan together last year, which was quite possibly one of the best trips I've ever taken. We then proceeded to buy an island together and now get free flights anywhere in the US for the next two years courtesy of the Southwest Companion Pass. In the works for this year: we'll be doing a transpacific cruise from Vancouver --> Russia --> Japan, and visiting Hong Kong to do the world's tallest bungee jump.Read more ›
I'm glad I read this through the Kindle Lending Library so I didn't actually pay for it. Its not a bad book its just not interesting and very salesy. The author is constantly trying to sell you (on his lifestyle/brand... notice even the one-word name Tynan, pretty sure that he wasn't born that way and its obviously an attempt to stand out in a crowded market) . I would have preferred straight-up suggestions and experiences versus lots of gimmicky salesmanship and self-promotins and "you can be this cool too" attitude.
This book reviewer gives it 3 stars. It would get a higher rating for just being an essay on travel, but a lower rating for the practical advice (or lack of). To follow his advice you need to have no children under the age of 18 and a job that can be done entirely online. Being married is optional.
This book is worth the $2.99 for the travel essay and for trying to inspire the person who wants to travel and experience the local culture. As someone who has lived out of a backpack for an extended time, it brings back the memories. Maybe I will do it again once the kids are out of the house.
