Motivational and Refreshing
Reviewed in the United States on May 12, 2021
A fabulous read! Adventures across the globe, highlight the creature comforts we constantly take for granted in our normal lives. The simplest things - shelter, heat, technology, internet, or cell phones, and how they have created a "world of pillows" to soften our experiences into a gentle ride through life with minimal actual challenge. There appears to be a continual decline in physical and mental excursion as humans, as we have evolved our civilizations and habits from problem solving, muscular creatures, living in the wild, to a group of "google searching", obese, instant gratification seeking people, ill equipped to manage solidarity or even conflict. The book is well written and I appreciated the intermingled narrative of his personal experience and data studies, as it solidifies his message with factual research information. Truly thought provoking and motivating! I already bought another copy as a gift. Check the author out, as he discusses the book, on Joe Rogan's podcast!
