I enjoyed the individual stories, but as a cohesive theme, the book fell short for me. The cover and title suggests more travel and adventure than is to be found inside. Even so, most of the stories did illustrate the point that exposure to differences positively influences a person. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0670036161, Hardcover)

Living in a new place is very different from visiting one, especially when that place is far away from home. Traveling gives us the rare opportunity to see who we might have been if we had been born someplace else. For some, it's a chance to recreate ourselves. For others, it's a time to realize who we already are. In Open Your Eyes, ten writers will be your guides to the journeys that changed their lives: a boarding school in England; parenthood in France; the most beautiful spots in Italy; China on the Yang-tze; a tiny shop in Tokyo, Japan; and even to Pilzen, Czechoslovakia as World War II is ending. Though each story offers an original viewpoint, all of the stories reflect back on two important themes: where we come from and how we become who we are.

Edited by Jill Davis.
