Disclaimer: I've known Tim for more years than I expect either of us probably wants to admit being alive -- although we largely went our separate ways after college, with only occasional contact, so I didn't know most of these stories, nor am I featured in any of them (not a complaint: whereas Tim has traveled on 5 continents, I've only managed about 6 states, unless you count my brief foray into truck driving, which is not the same thing.) Anyway, as an old friend, I found it quite interesting and often amusing. As someone who shared writing ambitions with Tim (we used to bounce ideas off each other and collaborate on some material), I would say that, for sustained reading, I thought the material might be better served as a more continuous narrative, rather than as a collection of short anecdotes; by the end of the book, I wasn't so sure. The format (50 stories averaging about 4 pages each) makes it perfect for bathroom reading, among other things. In any case, I certainly enjoyed the book. Whether it would appeal to someone who doesn't know Tim or his co-travelers (although he sticks to first names and occasional pseudonyms, I was able to identify most of those in the earlier stories as mutual friends and acquaintances), I'm not sure, which is why I give it 4 stars instead of 5.
One star off for the book itself -- the physical object, that is. Is quality bookbinding a lost art, akin to the porcelain glazes on a Ming vase or John Bonham's drumwork on "When the Levee Breaks"? Sure, I could have downloaded the Kindle version, but how do you get the author to sign that? In any case, looking forward to M:A2. I suspect there are plenty more adventures yet to come.
of the stories described therein.This book brings you lots of laughter and It’s worth reading indeed and it’s a book to put next to your bed.
