When a stand-up comedian - insurance salesman chucks the good life to live in a Kibbutz and trek around the Middle East for six months you have to admire him (and his wife) for stepping out of his comfort zone to learn the meaning of life and his place in it.
Carolyn Wilkerson, Author of Hasta Manana"Jeffrey Simon's search for the meaning of life is a hilarious travelogue, filled with sharp observations, poignant anecdotes, and timeless wisdom learned on the road."
Michael Ray Brown, Owner of Story Sense, Script Analysis
"The reason I love Notes, apart from the fact that I loved Jeff, is that it's a moving and witty combination of external observation and deep introspection. Every time I go back to the pages I learn a little bit more about my best friend, and often, a little bit more about myself."
Michael Buckley, Author's Best Friend
