Overview

TWO GUYS - FOREVER FRIENDS - write their fifth TWO GUYS BOOK.

Rather than reading and sharing their views on books or baseball scores, this time The TWO GUYS are traveling and sharing their adventures!

In TWO GUYS ON THE ROAD, Steve Chandlerand Terry Hillwrite e-mails, postcards, and letters to each other as they travel the world. Terry mostly takes lengthy travels for pleasure abroad with his wife Miranda while Steve takes short business trips around the country, at times with his wife Kathy. In their usual style, Steve and Terry often launch into digressions to discuss whatever piques their interest in the moment resulting in a collage of places, people, opinions, travel tips, and sometimes tenuously-related memories.

Steve and Terry'sfirst fiourTWOGUYS books are as follows:

Woud have been five if they had been...fans of the Pittsburgh Pirates...

Because this review (and others)writeabout enjoying the memories Steve and Terry share, it exemplifies that whatever topicthe men center their titlearound, it is their digressions that grab the readers' attentions and make their books so intriguing. This fifthTWO GUYS book does not center around a book; it is all about them and their experiences, opinions, and memories.

5.TWO GUYS ON THE ROAD, 2012 (Is sure to get good reviews too!)

I wish I could go out and buy many more 'Two Guys' books... they have a wonderful franchise going... the writing is dazzling, charming, and witty.
~ DaleDauten

If you ever catch yourself taking life a little too seriously, I recommend you sit back, relax, grab any one of the Two Guys books, and enjoy yourself for a while.
~ Michael Neill, Hay House Radio Talk Show Host and Author of Feel Happy Now

600 baseball books are published every year and 599 of them are not worth the paper they never should have been printed on. Two Guys Read the Box Scores is the other one. It is splendid.
- George Will, Washington Post columnist

    Unique Perspectives on Life and Travel

    “Two Guys on the Road – Walking Backwards Across the World” is the fifth in the collaborative writing of Steve Chandler and Terry Hill in the “Two Guys” series. I have read and enjoyed three of the earlier titles. I was especially eager to sit back, to fasten my seatbelt in readiness for a memorable, vicarious, new travel adventure. Both authors travel extensively, Terry with his wife Miranda maintain a home in New York City and travel primarily to other countries for pleasure. They enjoy staying for extended periods to absorb a sense of the history, culture, and to familiarize themselves with the local residents. Steve’s travels are mainly within the United States and are usually short trips related to his role as a professional business coach and corporate trainer. He and his wife Kathy make their home in Phoenix, Arizona. Unlike Fodor’, Frommer’s or other typical travel guides “Two Guys on the Road” is filled with the shared life experiences of the authors and the places they have visited. In addition to the travel theme, tips, information, and descriptions, Terry and Steve express opinions and observations on a broad base of subjects: including: international sports, music, art, literature, self-discovery, and the movies. Unique travel tips, references to their favorite restaurants, hotels, museums, and information on various locales gleaned from their wide-ranging travel add the expertise and flavor of a characteristic travel book. Steve and Terry have opened up a whole new dimension, a clearer vision, and a new perspective to me, as I do some “backward” reflecting of my own, on family memories, friendships, and the hundreds of people that have crossed our path throughout the years. I also enjoyed my reflections and glimpses into the experiences and opportunities afforded us as I relived so many reminders of the various cities, states, and communities we have called home. I also treasure the memories of family vacations, combination business/pleasure trip, and shared travels my wife and I have made over the years. “Two Guys on the Road” is a delightful medley of reminisces of old friends. Steve and Terry have a unique style and format of writing that engages the reader, drawing them into their inimitable friendship. An unforgettable reading experience A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
