Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Subtitled A Passport to Adventure, Discovery, and Growth, this little pocket book is full of traveling insights--from the philosophical to the practical, the poetic to the possible. An experienced traveler who has journeyed to 52 countries on six continents, author Steve Zikman is also the coauthor of the forthcoming books Chicken Soup for the Traveler's Soul and Chicken Soup for the Outdoor Soul.

"Beyond its refreshing and revitalizing qualities, travel has the unmatched capacity to be a wellspring of self-discovery and personal growth, a path to ourselves," Zikman writes in the introduction. In more than 100 short inspirational essays with titles as varied as "We Trust Our Intuition," "In the Heartland of Our Confidence," "Romance," "Travel Is Ageless," and "Conversation," his thought-provoking ideas and useful observations are applicable whether you're planning a weekend outing, family vacation, or solo business trip. Related quotes from fellow travelers such as Mother Teresa, Anaïs Nin, John Steinbeck, and Ralph Waldo Emerson add interest to every page. --Kathryn True

I loved Steve's book. I said to myself as I read every chapter, "Yes, Yes! I've been there, I've felt that!" This book is a must for anyone who wants to keep their passion for travel alive between journeys. Marybeth Bond, Author: Gutsy Women, Editor, A Woman's World and A Woman's Passion for Travel

Reading through Zikman's book is like crossing the most beautiful countries and landscapes without any effort. The author's knowledge and wisdom is touching, makes sense, and goes straight to your heart and mind. No traveler should leave home without this little pocket-sized friend.

I have traveled many places around the world and read many books on travel, but this book is truly different. Instead of simply delving into the practical side of travel, this book explores the more "soulful" world. The interjection of quotes from famous people adds to the more pure understanding of the "power of travel." I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for something different. It's a quick and interesting read. The author has an honest understanding of the world of travel. Five stars all the way!

Format: Paperback
Steve Zikman's "The Power of Travel" is NOT a conventional travel log! Instead, it is a uniquely styled book comprised of passionate and inspiring reflections about travel and its impact on people. Almost lyrical at points, it's prose with a "lightning bolt" effect. Anyone who reads "The Power of Travel" can immediately relate to the subjects Steve Zikman discusses. The beauty of the book's style? It prompts the reader to remember and examine his own travel experiences, and them relate them to the reflections. When I need an escape from my world, I find myself going back to my favorite sections - for instance, "Travel is Transformative" brings up memories of my first trip to Alaska. ( ...And thinking to myself, because of this experience, I will never be the same person again.)
"The Power of Travel" allows the reader to reminiscence, reflect, and remember that travel still holds a magical effect on us. And for those who love to share their experiences? "The Power of Travel" makes a uniquely wonderful gift.
