Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Who has never fleetingly dreamed of just 'chucking it all' and taking off on a nomadic trip around the world? Richard Meredith, finding himself at a mid-life crossroads, did just that, and shares insightful, often humorous, vignettes of his yearlong adventure in 'One Way or Another'. His book is a witty, entertaining hodgepodge of observations, personal anecdotes, historical background and information. It will surely leave some readers, with their own wanderlust aroused, wondering: Could I? Should I? And if not now, when? - Joan Riley, Absolute Write. com (USA)
