When Jyn Erso was five years old, her mother was murdered and her father taken from her to serve the Empire. But despite the loss of her parents, she is not completely alone - Saw Gerrera, a man willing to go to any extremes necessary in order to resist Imperial tyranny, takes her in as his own and gives her not only a home but all the abilities and resources she needs to become a rebel herself.

It's a book about nothing in particular. Great if you are someone who can't get enough of the Star Wars universe, but don't expect a compelling plot. Also the audio is weird and randomly cuts to different volumes of speaking.

This book is dangerous in that packages terrible advice as a financial self-help book. I would not advise anyone to follow the strategies outlined in this book.

Vagabonding is about taking time off from your normal life - from six weeks to four months to two years - to discover and experience the world on your own terms. Veteran shoestring traveler Rolf Potts shows how anyone armed with an independent spirit can achieve the dream of extended overseas travel.

I was quite excited for this book based on the recommendation of Tim Ferris. However, short of some entertaining anecdotes, I did not find that it offered much of value.
