This was a really good book, giving an interesting view of people's generosity as the author travels across the country with no money.

Wow! Mike McIntyre's writing is so smooth! I read this on my Kindle and found it difficult to put down (thankfully, I can brush my teeth and hold the Kindle at the same time)! He shows the best of America--that there are true treasures among the people of our nation. But he must be a treasure himself to get such interesting people to open up to him and tell him their stories. He shows that everyone has a story to tell. Just a fascinating read, and one that made me reevaluate how I perceive others.

Sometimes you have to step out into the unknown to overcome the fear of the unknown. That's what the author did and put America to the test. It passed - perhaps not with flying colors but pretty well overall. And he overcame his fears.
