Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Travel That Can Change Your Life is 'must' reading for anyone who has ever wished his or her vacations more closely resembled adventure novels. Highly recommended!"

I have often said life is a journey with no map to guide us. Travel That Can Change Your Life can be a guide that brings direction and meaning to your journey through life. This book represents a traveler's guide to life written by a skilled travel agent' and therapist. (Bernie S. Siegel, M.D., author of Love, Medicine, and Miracles)

"This intriguing work is recommAnded for public libraries."

"Kottler...believes that the urge to travel is activated by more than the need to take a break or see new sights, that it is actually an unconscious desire to change something significant about ourselves, Kottler's book builds convincingly on this intriguing theory, the offers suggestions for planning a journey that can lead to personal transformation. (Donna Seaman, Chicago Tribune, December 28, 1997)

"Designed to help you explore your inner self as you explore the outer world." (Sue Hobart, The Portland Oregonian)

"The book nicely weaves a connection between our travel reality and the life to which we (usually) ultimately return." (NAPRA Review)

"Psychologist Kottler provides the how-to tidbits and the mental reinforcement needed to transform a mere vacation into an adventure of personal enlightenment." (Chris Shull, American Way Magazine)

"Offers inspiration for becoming a 'transformative traveler,' using a vacation, business trip or even a weekend getaway to try out a new identity, expand your physical limints and learn more about yourself and how the world works." (Jann Mitchell, The Oregonian)

"...a fascinating book..." (Al Haas, Hartford Courant)

Library Journal
In his professional and personal life, Kottler (counseling and educational psychology, Univ. of Nevada; The Language of Tears, Jossey-Bass, 1996) has seen many examples of individuals using travel to explore their inner selves. To assist in making this process of change more conscious and effective, he offers ways to use travel to make personal changes. Changes can be large or small, and Kottler explains different possibilities, for example, opening up to adventure, getting lost, facing fears, and finding one's sense of space. Examples and suggestions are clear and interesting. This intriguing work is recommended for public libraries.Alison Hopkins, Queens Borough P.L., N.Y.
