Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Using Buddhism as the basis, this unusual travel guide teaches the reader how to keep a travel journal. Currie, a well-traveled environmental scientist, believes that keeping a journal while traveling leads one to self-discovery and life contemplations and helps one to relive vacation memories more vividly when returning home. Currie begins by discussing the necessity of keeping a travel journal, the process for selecting a journal, and "the method" or suggested format for journal writing. Then, in a light-hearted and funny tone, Currie provides tips on travel dos and don'ts based on his own experiences. Touchstones or inspirational quotes taken from literature, Buddha, and even rock stars such as the Beatles are used to connect the chapters, while charts, tables, and cartoons help to illustrate Currie's main points in more detail. This insightful and comical book is a joy to read and should be added to all travel collections.--Stephanie Papa, Baltimore Cty.

    This book'll be one of the most prized tools I carry in my backpack.

    I read The Mindful Traveler during my subway commute to Manhattan. Last week, on my way home to Brooklyn from the office, I finished it. I was struck by how much it has spoken to me and opened up new ways of thinking and approaching... well, everything. I bought the book at Barnes & Noble in Union Square one Friday night when I'd just finished deciding that I was going to shed most of my possessions and obligations and go traveling. It was a crisis of sorts, and I'd really reached a point of no return in terms of wanting to transform my life. I bought this book because it offered exactly what I was looking for: a travel guide for the inner-self, drawing on respected eastern philosophy but laced with humor and playfulness, practical tips, and a pretty doable-looking methodology. Something I needed right away, to begin my journey many months before I even started packing. The book delivered exactly what it promised, and was delightful to read. I couldn't wait to get on the subway every morning! Let me tell you, the commute hasn't been the same since. Now, as I continue to plan my open-ended wandering of the South Pacific and leave everything behind (I'm often pretty freaked about about the idea -- there's that fear of letting everything go, because there might not be anything left), the book this author has shared with us provides me with inspiration and a structured way of turning this life-adventure into a truly meaningful -- and dare I say powerful -- one. I'm damn excited! Yikes! This book'll be one of the most prized tools I carry in my backpack. - HT, Media Producer (soon to be former rat), New York City
