This All Encompassing Trip (Chasing Pearl Jam Around The World)by Jason Leung
What is life on the road like for a rock star? Jason Leung is no rock star but he lives the life of one while following Pearl Jam on tour around the world. Starting in 2005 with a modest road trip in a beat up old van to see every Pearl Jam show across Canada, Jason discovers a whole community of like-minded fans who are as welcoming as they are kind hearted. This fascinating experience inspires Jason to leave his promising career as a civil engineer to further explore this phenomenon and pursue a life of travel. His ensuing journey continues across America, all over Europe, and around Australia, as he relentlessly journeys from show to show during Pearl Jam's entire 2006 world tour, establishing a unique family of friends along the way. These extraordinary bonds and the adventures that emerge from them are the basis for Jason's story and This All Encompassing Trip!

I will not lie, I have been a huge fan of Pearl Jam for 20 years ~ so obviously I am going to give this book high ratings. But the way that Jason tells his wonderful story isn't really about Pearl Jam. What you think is going to be a major part of the story turns out to play the background music for an unexpected advanture. This adventure taught the author that all of your dreams can come true, as long as you don't let anything get in your way.
Reading "This All Encompassing Trip" makes me feel as if I had been along for the ride! You don't even have to be a Pearl Jam fan to enjoy this adventurous road trip! Jason's writing style and attention to detail draws you into this epic journey across 3 countries following the best band ever!! This is truely a dream come true for many fans like me or to anyone wishing they could just quit their day to day grind to see what life on the road has in store while meeting new people along the way. I may never have the courage or opportunity to quit my job & follow my favorite band on world tour, but what a pleasure it is to live vicariously through Jason's journey. Thank you for sharing it with us! - Lela
