Wow. Just wow. At first I seriously thought that he was this conceited, self-centered asshole, leaving his wife and 5 children to go on this three week trip around the world with his brother, but his life has been a roller coaster! He has had some serious ups and downs. They made me laugh (SoxyVoomen), they made me cry (all the death!), and they really made me think about my own life. He really wove his stories together beautifully. He wasn't always on the path of becoming an author, but that is truly his calling.
