Publisher's Summary

This audiobook is the sunny and inspiring tale of someone who refuses to be defeated by the adversities in his life. Scarred by a childhood of abuse, by injury and trauma as a Sergeant in the U.S. Marines and by a totally fortuitous hit-and-run accident, he finally takes his life into his own hands and moves to the 'Big Island' of Hawaii which has a reputation for offering a healing lifestyle.

Immersed in a jungle environment where geckos are his companions and he can forage for fruit every day to make his breakfast smoothies, he gradually slows to the pace of island life. He abandons TV, and instead listens to the sound of the rain on the roof. He learns how to greet and be greeted according to the beautiful customs of the island's inhabitants, enjoys local food and allows serendipity to guide him.

"The Idiot's Guide to Happiness!"

What did you like best about Aloha Joe in Hawaii? What did you like least?

The honest way he tells of his ridiculous and pathetic life

Would you ever listen to anything by Joe Holt again?

Sure.. what the heck

What about Robert Neil DeVoe’s performance did you like?

Sounded like a real "aloha Joe" kinda guy

Could you see Aloha Joe in Hawaii being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

HA! it'd be a very short and boring film!~

Any additional comments?
