I absolutely loved this book, from the first page to the last page it was hard to put down. If I had the chance I would have read it through in one day. It was exciting but mostly it was insightful, to watch him on his journey how he transformed from the disconnected person he was to one with such passion. I would recommend this book to everyone, however if you want to read a book about mountain climbing and surfing this may not be the one for you. This is more about his journey and less about his adventures.

I won this book from Goodreads. ( )
