Editorial Reviews


Stoll did some planning but allowed chance to govern his journey.
~ The New York Times

[Stoll] did something most of us would not do: He decided to ride his bicyclearound the world. His impulse isn't as strange as it might sound. Humans have always sought answers to life's perplexing questions byundertaking long and arduous journeys.
~ San Francisco Chronicle

It was an exhausting yet exhilarating trip filled with both human kindness and
treachery, with nature's beauty, challenge and danger.
~ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Scott Stoll lives a life the rest of us only dream of. With a keen eye and an open heart, he expresses the joys and aggravations of traveling theworld on two wheels.
~ Michael Berry, Bay Area book critic

Scott Stoll's cycling journey around the world raises countless questionsabout life in our time and answers quite a few of them. He is at oncecharming, innocent, fearless, and wise in his search for the world andhimself. What does he find? Joy, tranquility, no end of personalchallenges, and a whole lot more.
~ Larry Habegger, Executive Editor, Travelers' Tales

Stoll has some harrowing and heart-warming tales to tell.
~ San Diego Union-Tribune

Stoll's attitude and observations verge on Paul Theroux, which I love!
~ The Gear Junkie, Stephen Regenold

See! There's something else for us out there. We just have to dream a little bit.
~ WGN Chicago

They are fascinating books. [Falling Uphill series] And, I'm telling you--Ireally enjoyed reading about [Stoll's] experiences.
~ Wisconsin PublicRadio, Larry Meiller Show

What do you do when everything around youseems to crumble? Break down and cry? Roll
downhill? Soldier on? ScottStoll found an alternative: Get on your bike and fall uphill.
~ Buenos Aires Herald (Argentina)

A Milwaukee man has ended his 40,220 kilometer trip in Cape Town. Hecycled through snow in Lesotho, was thrown in jail and landed in ahospital -- in search of happiness... [But] it was a journey that wasnot all downhill.
~  Cape Argus (Cape Town, South Africa)

Thanks in advance to my readers forbeing part of the journey. ~ Scott
