Overview

After hitting bottom during his rough-and-tumble life, former brawler Ed Carlson decided to take his life in a totally new direction. He found his mission walking along America's roadways, traveling penniless and without an agenda-except to spread peace, goodwill, and love. Walking over 250,000 miles, Ed had many meaningful encounters; some were dramatic, others simple, but nearly all moving in the way only kindness shared between strangers can be. For days after finishing I Walked to the Moon and Nearly Everyone Waved, I felt transformed. What was curious about the effect is that it wasn't a conscious thing. I didn't tell myself, "You should be more like Ed." I simply felt a spontaneous deep trust and calm, a letting go of worries. Ed lives and acts from such a kind, generous, and trusting place, he has that effect on everyone he meets, even readers. I invite you to enjoy some surprisingly inspiring time in Ed's presence. --Marshall Glickman, author of Beyond the Breath (Tuttle Publishing) and The Mindful Money Guide (Random House/Ballantine).

    After first 25 pages I loved it; Inspiring

    After first 25 pages I loved it; Inspiring --
    > I got this book knowing nothing about it, but that I was drawn to its quirky title. After it a reading it a bit, I almost put it down because Ed Carlson has some out there beliefs and at times can have an outsized ego. But the stories of his penniless life on the road devoted to spreading love and good will were engaging (the coauthor/ ghost writer does a good job) and I stuck with it. And I’m glad I did.

    At some point while reading it, I spontaneously felt a freedom from worry, a relaxed acceptance of whatever comes up. That sense of things stayed with me for days after finishing the book (it’s a quick read). It’s was kind of curious as it wasn’t a conscious decision on my part and has never happened to me from reading a book before (and I’ve read lots). I think it speaks to the depth of Ed Carlson’s kind, open-hearted generosity that spending some time with him in these pages rubbed off a bit. I definitely recommend it, just be prepared for some occasional out there philosophical beliefs. Ultimately for me, Ed’s actions and life speak loudest.
