Read only if you are not scared of been inspired,
This review is from: Explore Everything: Place-hacking the City (Hardcover)
I encountered Explore Everything while roaming on a Friday lunch break in Rough Trade.
I just opened the first pages and realised that the book and I were sharing one passion: exploring, touching first hand that no matter in which landscape or moment we are, we can overcome routines and conventions and free our desires and instinct.
I set in a bar, in the sun and started travelling with Bradley and it's crew across London tubes, unknown site, iconic buildings, to move than across Europe and the US and discover that urban sites are our modern ruins, we do not have to book expensive holiday packages to observe how we evolve and grow in our humans deeds.
The book is never pretending to justify or encourage trespassing, or juvenile rebellion.
The events and the discoveries unfold with a spontaneous sense of endurance, intellectual curiosity and camaraderie.
The narrative is an authentic chronic of a journey of a group of people who enjoy testing their limits but without pretending to convince the reader to transgress or become someone else.
The pictures are slotted in without any caption: that made the discovery of the book more direct, not labeled by post codes.
It is a truly enjoyable read, and you might actually been inspired by the opportunity to start exploring your surroundings, discovering that our learning and self discovery means are only limited by our own inertia and fear to show who we really are!
A great contemporary chronicle: give it a go and leave your bourgeois scepticism a rest!
