"Here is that rare kind of book, the kind that can influence lives.  It takes the reader on a journey of astonishing dimension and brings the world to life in a way that gives travel a new meaning and purpose.  


Alone one black and rainy night in London, Ted Simon got on a motorcycle and rode off around the world.  Altogether his journey took four years and he covered over sixty thousand miles on the road, surviving war, revolutions, accidents and imprisonment on the way.  


The pages are packed with people and anecdotes, rich in humor and incisive observation.  The linking thread is the author's persistan struggle with his own fears, and the seach for meaning in his Odyssey."
