What a difference with the new book. The author is humbler and more open than before. He takes chances just to see what's there. His writing is more fluid and less confrontational than the TWTT book.
This one is a keeper. I will read it again next winter!
Glen is, in fact, an "anthropologist on a bike", a title for his book that I might have chosen. He is brilliant, and is able to dance with a broad spectrum of human nature, revealing it in the most positive and healthy of ways; ways that generate hope for our world. He is able to let go of the conditioned biases and prejudices that we are all programmed to adopt as we endure the constant fear based interpretations of the media.
If you would like to travel the world to places you will probably never get to experience directly, and if you would like to engage with people through a filter of appreciation, read Glen's book. You will not be disappointed.
Heggstad himself must be semi-insane. Like every world cyclist, he insists on going through Siberia.Read more ›
Positives-Glen offers some unique and interesting perspectives as he travels the world. He sometimes acts like a frat-boy that didn't grow up, but I think a lot of that is just playful writing to help the book sell (I don't blame him). I particularly enjoyed the political and cultural commentary regarding the middle and far east, Japan & Germany, and his final days in Africa. Very insightful. As expected, not everyone hates Americans, and not everyone is like Fox or CNN describes. But, some places in the world actually do suck, and you probably shouldn't visit them. I think Glen hits these points right on the head.
Negatives- A number of people I've talked to all tend to agree that some of this can come across as ego-centric or "me, me, me me....". This guy also kind of abandons everyone in his life that matters to go to his own thing. He also uses makes some really poor decisions regarding his health along the way. None of this offended me, but I know some who really just couldn't get on board with his mind set, and it made the book very hard to read.
In summary, I've read a lot of these motorcycle adventure books, and many are the same- (I yearned for adventure, I left home, I learned about the world, but I came back because.... blah." While many of those elements are present in his book, I'd say his take is a lot different. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
