    Josh Bernstein is a natural storyteller

    This book is a must for anyone who loves to travel and learn. Josh Bernstein's humor pulls the reader in - it's hard to put the book down! He has the best job in the world, but not everyone could do it. It's great fun to be 'along for the ride'.

    Just like a conversation with Josh

    I found when I received this book yesterday I could not put it down. It is well written, the pictures are very good. After having watched the series it helps to fill in the background. I found the information about what Josh carries, clothes, etc. to be interesting. It seemed as though it was more of a conversation with you than 'just facts in a book'. I would hope that many would read this book. It will make the new series in January come more alive as I shall be curious to see where the adventure leads. It would be my hope that Josh will write more about his adventures, especially the back stories. Again, great job!
