    This is the story of Joe from the beginning to the present. Joe grew up in a small community in the mountains of Wyoming and was involved in all the crazy hillbilly activities of the region. He rode bulls and horses in the rodeo and spent the weekends finding interesting ways to hurt himself. Joe was under constant pressure during his youth from the church and the religious fanatics in his family. When Joe became a teenager he joined missions with the Nondenominational Church and traveled to Australia where he worked to help out and convert the Aborigines....

    Where does The Art of Waking Dreams rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Right at the top with 'Into Thin Air' and 'The Long Walk'


    What other book might you compare The Art of Waking Dreams to and why?

    Its hard to compare because it covers so much ground. I would say it is a combination of 'The Beach' and 'Into The Wild' because it is about a truth seeker that goes for it and never gives up till he finds what he is searching for. And like The Beach because later in the guys life he lives on tropical island in Thailand and the Philippines and Fiji and is a bit blunt and even dark at times while describing some of the less advertised aspects of the islands.


    What does Josiah Heiser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I thought that the guys voice was good for the story. Sometimes when the author reads the story it actually kinda ruins it for because the author sounds like a kid or something. But this guy's deep voice fits the image I have in my mind.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    It reminded me that even a regular broke average guy like myself can have awesome adventure if I just purge some of the material and use the money to break free.


    Any additional comments?

    I wouldnt recommend this book for kids or sensitive types and like the other guy said hes pretty disgusted with religion and lets it out in the book so religious types should reconsider. The guys no great writer but he gets his Ideas and descriptions out very effectively and I like the blunt honesty. This book covers a lot of ground and it never gets boring. The Man has had some cool experiences. Its a must read for travelers and spiritual types.
