Publisher's Summary

Following in the tradition of Ghost Rider and Traveling Music, Rush drummer Neil Peart relates nearly four years of band tours, road trips, and personal discoveries in this introspective travelogue. From the ups and downs of a professional artist to the birth of a child, this revealing narrative recounts 22 adventures from rock's foremost drummer, biker enthusiast, husband, and father. Both playful and insightful, Peart's love of drumming and the open road weaves throughout the stories as Neil explores horizons that are both physical and spiritual, sharing his observations about nature, society, and the self.

I got my prize

I've read almost every book Neil Preart has written, I'll get to all of them someday. This one, like the others, was such a joy and I feel like I am richer for having read it. I got my prize.

Good Read... or listen. Smooth Narration.

I really enjoyed this book, but not as much as Ghost Rider. Maybe I just related more to Ghost Rider, but I still would listen/read again and would definitely recommend this.

In addition Brian Sutherland did a excellent job narrating.

What a great loss to our world

This book is beautifully mastered by Mr. Peart, the way he describes his journey through his time informs and educates the reader with out bias. What a loss to our world, his passing came much too early. RIP

What a disappointment!

This book does not cover travel or motorcycles much. it is a plotless drivel that came to fruition after a copy and pasted job was completed on a blog of a local celebrity. It is full of useless trivia and superficial observations. The narrator sounds like a 60 year old vegan guy whose joy in life is limited to eating cereal with soy milk in the morning. I have never heard of a rock group called Rush. If you are not a fan then skip and save your 1 credit and a of disappointment.
