More About the Author

Andrew Hyde has a passion for community, writing, travel and startups. He has founded three startups (two failed, one sold and his new focus is on travel). With roots in freelancing and design, he can hold a conversation about best interface practices as well as how to build cabins with hand tools. He is also a marathoner, Ironman competitor, blogger and event organizer. He started Ignite Boulder, TEDxBoulder, Startup Weekend and a food/tech/music conference boco

His work has been featured in the NYTimes, NBC World News, Washington Post, Boston Globe, Denver Post, INC, Entrepreneur, Daily Mail, Yahoo! and the Nepal Times, oddly. He has written for Laughing Squid, The Next Web and Read Write Web. He is the author (although mostly in name only) of nine patents with variations of the name "Aggregation of an Aggregation System." What I'm trying to say is that I just hope you are not reading this through an aggregation system, and then aggregating it.

His book "This Book is About Travel" was published in June of 2012.

As an avid traveler, this book was perfect plane (or train, bus, tram or ship) reading from a like soul. Excellent mix of stories, tips, interviews and tricks, mixed in with humor and delivered an approachable style. I'd recommend to anyone going on, or contemplating, a journey soon.

The world is full of people telling you what you can't do. Andrew is here to remind us to ignore those people and jump into life with both feet.

This book is not only an energizing read, but it's also gorgeous. Reminiscent of an Alain de Botton title, "This Book Is About Travel" is a collection of brief, inspiring essays juxtaposed with some truly marvelous travel photography. As a veteran traveler, "This Book Is About Travel" stirred some deep longings for a cocktail in Cambodia and another hunt for rhubarb pie in Germany. Feeling ho-hum about your 9-5? Flip open to a page and book a damn plane ticket already. As Andrew reminds us, we don't need a savings account or years of planning to explore the world -- we just need us.

If you have been dreaming about getting out of your routine and into the big world, this book is for you.
If you have already been out in the big world and you enjoy the considerate observations that often come from travel, this book is for you.
If you just can't get away, but hearing about someone else's adventures can take you there, this book is for you.

Andrew tells great stories, he shares big thoughts, and he keeps insisting that long-term, round the world travel is available to just about everyone. Highly recommended!

In 2007, I lived in a van for three months and 15,000 miles around the country. In 2008, I took one month sublets around the US for six months. Every year since, I've road tripped for 3+ months a year. In 15 minutes, I could be out and living out of my 4Runner indefinitely. Compared to most, I've done some traveling.

And I feel like an amateur when reading This Book is About Travel.

Here are the three main things that stand out for me:
* Most of my travel has been in the US, but This Book is About Travel brings me along elsewhere beyond the border. Getting this kind of first-hand experience is awesome.
* As much as I've traveled and written, I still don't think I could craft stories and extract insights into what's happening in precious moments and situations as well as Andrew.
* The combination of interviews with other world travelers and the "How I Plan" chapter (and other bits of advice throughout). When the time comes for me to travel the world, not only will the stories be great to come back to, but the advice will be invaluable.

The last thing I'll say is that this is more of a collection of stories than a "how to travel the world." (Though, as mentioned above, you'll find techniques, etc) Anyone can learn the details of how to travel the world, but gaining insight into the depth of experience, in my opinion, is far more inspiring.

I read Andrew Hyde's "This Book is About Travel" upon moving to Amsterdam, never having been to Europe before. I couldn't ask for a better burst of encouragement for my adventure.

Andrew writes a very compelling story of his life changing journey around the world. I love this book because he spends most of his time addressing issues, ways of thinking and how transformative travel has been to him. As a lifelong traveler and someone who has been transformed from my experiences around the world as well, this book resonated with me. A fun and insightful read!

If you're one of those people that moan and groans about being static and not getting anywhere, this book will give you the kick in the butt you need. Andrew tells you his story to plan your next adventure for years to come. The tone of the book is fun, informal, and inspiring. After reading this book, I'm already looking at flights and seeing how many vacation days I have for the year. It's time to see and do things!

Besides being an inspirational book about traveling, Andrew also makes me feel like I own too much stuff. Maybe this will give you some perspective on what your current living situation is and that it is time to downsize.

Probably one of the most informative books I've read about travel and doing it on your on time. Andrew is hilarious, awesome and makes me want to drop everything and do what he did. It's like a manual for being awesome and traveling the world.
