5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Self-Help Book In My Home Library 29 April 2017
By Robert William Case - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In his opening chapter, author Frosty Wooldridge, invokes the ghosts of authors from prior centuries to present the reader with an existential dilemma...the same one that sneaks up on many of us about midlife: Am I, the reader, choosing mediocrity, quiet desperation...or something heroic? The quotes are from Henry David Thoreau and Jack London. Author Wooldridge's writing isn't done in a confrontational tone. His style is sincere, even invitational. The book intended for the ordinary, everyday kind of hero.
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?

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME! 11 Dec. 2013
By Stephen Nawotniak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
GREAT BOOK especialy the chapter git er done. I came across this book while facing an emotional wall in pursuit of a dream. The book helped by providing the motivational perspective AND reconnection to purpose that spurred my into action to TAKE THE NEXT STEP. My Vision's momentum is now at an exponentially faster momentum and scope and this journey is truly an ADVENTURE!

5.0 out of 5 stars FROSTY DID GREAT... 24 July 2013
By Geo. M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of Frosty W's writing for the last ten years. After I read the reviews of this book (about his traveling adventures), I bought the Kindle edition. I have found it to be endlessly entertaining... and all the more so because it is all true. I rate it five stars and give it and A+ too.
