Editorial Reviews

Review

"If anyone knows determination, perseverance, agony and terror it is Glen Heggstad. And that motorcycles are fun! Straight to the point with moods and emotions that come right off the page, I’m surprised I haven’t seen a movie on this book already."  —Jimmy Lewis, editor, Cycle World Magazine


“Heggstad’s factual account is entirely possible . . . it is certainly a nice way to spend an evening."  —Motorcycle Consumer News


"A spectacular and gripping read. In it, Heggstad manages to illustrate the joys and hardships and benefits and drawbacks of two-wheeled global travel to some of the most difficult places on the planet."  —Friction Zone


“When you read his book, start it on a Friday evening, because you’ll spend all weekend traveling with him. You won’t be able to put it down"  —Cycle World Adventures


"This is a story of extreme travel at its finest. Everyone, especially riders, will appreciate the extremes this man went to in pursuit of his ultimate journey."  —Road Runner

I read Glen's earlier book several years back. I kind of had to force myself to continue reading through some parts to get to the good stuff.
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!

I am only half way through this book, but I can hardly put it down except to write this review, and I have never before written a review of anything. Glen's writing is so eloquent and descriptive that I feel like I am there with him. His courage and tenacity are beyond amazing, and his zeal for freedom and adventure provides me with authentic excitement and passion even if it is vicarious. He has become my temporary hero, and I look forward to savoring each and every page.

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.

What a wonderful book except for two common criticisms. First is the dearth of pictures -- is Heggstad the only person to travel around the world and not snap more than a few pics -- we don't even get a decent or clear picture of the author! Therefore, go to the author's website listed in the book for hundreds of [uncategorized] digital photos of this book. My second criticism is the poor mapping included -- it's handy to have an atlas at hand -- Rand McNally's Notebook World Atlas is perfect -- to follow each subchapter as Heggstad's maps are small and vague, nor do they list all the points of his travels! Still, this is a worthy book because the author does it alone. Compare this account to Ewan MacGregor and Charley Boorman's horribly ill-prepared Long Way Round: Chasing Shadows Across the World. MacGregor and Boorman spent every day crying for their wives and children wanting to go home, and they spent the rest of their time ditching and wrecking their bikes. Heggstad broke up with his gal when she called him three weeks in and issued an ultimatum to come home or else. Heggstad notes that it's far easier to travel alone on a bike than in teams of two or more; people greet and welcome an individual more openly.

Heggstad himself must be semi-insane. Like every world cyclist, he insists on going through Siberia.

Great book. Read it.

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.
