If the reader chooses to continue, the book unfolds into a step-by-step instructional guide for leading a life of adventure. It is complete with lists for preparation, ideas for destinations, motivational vignettes, and suggestions for finding help and support along the way. It is probably the most practical self-help book in my library. For that, it deserves high marks and the five star rating.
With the rating out of the way, this reviewer notes that the book does bog down in the details of its recommendations. The packing lists are lengthy and written from a masculine perspective. And, the author readily acknowledges his built in bias, taking his best shot at formulating parallel lists for women. He also finds the words to cerebrate a fellow adventurer and motivational speaker, Bob Wieland, a legless Vietnam veteran who has powered himself across the North American continent on his hands.
This reviewer has known the author, Frosty Wooldridge, as a friend for more than a decade. We have shared the experience of a bicycle tour across Colorado. As a good friend, I see this book as a clear reflection and celebration of his life. It is fine legacy and a fine read. I highly recommend it to anyone facing a midlife passage and wondering: How can I avoid ending up in that army of disappointed men?/women?
