My one problem with the book was the large number of grammar and/or syntax errors. Yes, I am one of those people who finds that sort of thing distracting. While I realize that English is not Christian's first language, he could have had the book reviewed by an editor prior to going into publication. Still, if this sort of thing isn't an issue for you, I think you will thoroughly enjoy this book. If not for the grammar/syntax errors, I would have rated the book 5 stars.
Christians humorous, stream-of-conscious style of writing is addictive. You'll most likely laugh out loud on several occasions (I did) and you'll feel like you're the one taking the journey of a lifetime around the globe. Whether it's rolling in the freezing cold of Moldova or acting crazy in a tropical storm in Jamaica (hilarious), you'll feel like you're the one there.
Along the entire trip, his story about the compassion, hospitality and laid-back attitude of the jiu-jitsu community is truly inspirational, to the point where you can't help but want to be a bigger part of it.
I've never envied anyone as much as I envy Christian for this round-the-world adventure, as I'm sure you will too.
As a blue belt student of the game, I am especially grateful for Christian's honesty regarding his initial fear of having to prove his skills at gyms across the world. Throughout the book, he invites everyone to walk with him as he grew as a traveller and a BJJ student. I will take his words to heart as I grow my own game.
After reading each chapter, I highly recommend readers to compare the content to what Christian wrote on his blog ([...]). His extra writings and pictures on the blog really bring his adventures to life!
Thank you Christian for writing this book!
