This book isn't intended to be a feel good book. Every single person who reads it will get a different message and have a different opinion of the book. If the book doesn't move you in some way, you might want to check your pulse to see if you are still alive. Henry has had opportunities to travel for various reasons and has used those opportunities to educate himself and now the general public. As much as he encourages all of us to travel extensively, most of us will realistically not be able to afford it or have other obligations that don't allow for the same opportunities to travel as Henry. So, we do the best we can and educate ourselves with the best resource we have by allowing Henry to be our guide.
Some will totally agree with the commentary he offers in the book. If you are familiar with Henry's work, you expect nothing less than the shocking and at times harsh and brutal commentary.Read more ›
What really makes this book for me is the writing that goes along with each photo. Some people may accuse Rollins of being unpatriotic or hating America because of the content of the writing. The writing may offend if the reader is not willing to delve into a deeper and search for Rollins' meaning. Once the reader examines the deeper meaning they will realize that he is a person that loves humanity and wants to see things changed. The writing isn't necessarily a description of the photo. It is more creative and sometimes reaches political commentary. It is pretty easy to see where he stands politically with this writing. Most of it will move you and some of it will disturb you.Read more ›
This book seems to follow a certain formula: Point Henry Rollins towards a country. Let him explore it; he will invariably seek out the least tourist-friendly places he can find. Watch as he tries to digest as many experiences as he can while he's there. When his experiences have sufficiently mixed with his previous travels and the angry bile of his opinions on world politics, he will spew from his gut this beautiful vitriol--it is beautiful because it is truth. Maybe not literal truth, at times, but it is Rollins' truth. Collect it, put it in book form, and voila!
If you like Rollins' spoken word material, you will probably like this book. If don't know his spoken word material, well... try a sample of this book first. You could very well hate it.

Interesting collection of essays and photographs. Definitely not from the usual travel destinations. The ideas expressed are thought provoking. Good read overall.Published on February 1, 2014 by JB
I've been a Henry Rollins fan since his Black Flag days. Everything he does; he does with an unflinching honesty and this collection of photos with commentary is no different. Read morePublished on February 11, 2013 by MReyes

Excellent expose of corporate malfeasance and greed, but can be difficult to follow at times. Shows some causes of anti-American sentiment throughout the world.Published on September 13, 2012 by spyque
