THE Perfect Antidote to January Blues,
This review is from: The Jolly Pilgrim (Paperback)
How many goodly creatures are there here! How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world!
The ad for this book should read "Tired of daily drudgery? Can't see the point any more? Feel like quitting your job and taking a holiday? Save yourself time and money, read this book!"
Utterly fascinating and compelling (and hugely provocative)- I found the Jolly Pilgrim's colourful adventure more informative and stimulating than my average arts degree. It is a massive rebuttal to current thinking i.e. that we are doomed economically and environmentally. I have not read a more topical or a more hopeful book.
Like the best holiday it is a mixture of challenge, revelation and pure escapism and you come back from your trip with renewed energy and sense of purpose. It stays with you.
