Publisher's Summary

Tired of his disconnected life and uninspiring job, Leon Logothetis leaves it all behind - job, money, home, and even his cell phone - and hits the road with nothing but the clothes on his back and five dollars in his pocket, relying on the kindness of strangers and the serendipity of the open road for his daily keep. Along the way, Leon offers up the intriguing and charming tales gathered along his one-of-a-kind journey: riding in trains, buses, big rigs and classic cars; sleeping on streets and couches and firehouses; meeting pimps and preachers, astronauts and single moms, celebrities and homeless families, veterans and communists. Each day of his journey, we catch sight of the invisible spiritual underpinning of society in these stories of companionship - and sheer adventure - that prove that the kind, good soul of mankind has not been lost.

    "An ordinary con."

    Got about half way through this before Leon's selfishness and self centred view of what he was doing finally forced me to quit. I wouldn't say it was amazing to discover that people help you out, more so that someone can take advantage of it for the sole purpose of producing a book and profiting from it and at the same time try to convince himself and the reader that it is not for self gain but some sort of spiritual inner journey. Even when he is kicked out of the petrol station he doesn't get just how annoying his attitude is to some people. To do it for a week or so as a social experiment is cool but to dine out on other people's generosity for this long when you really don't need, to just feels wrong.

    "Too short"

    Surely not easy to put a vast journey, and all the experiences in to six hours. For me it felt more like an abridged version. Maybe it was just the authors "message" the whole point of the book.
