If you like reading travelogues interspersed with first-time experiences about meditation, spiritual journeys, and finding yourself then you will enjoy this book. It begins with Michael Crichton's experiences as a medical student and his disillusionment and dissatisfaction with that career choice. From there he embarks on a personal journey which involves travel to remote villages, encounters with intimidating animals, treks to the highest peaks, spiritual connections, and a new understanding of one's self.
Insightful and entertaining, well written.
I found the book interesting because I learned many things about the author. The book is an account of his many travels and is biographical as well. Interesting reading for those who are Michael Crichton fans.
