Publisher's Summary

Ever experienced the way small moments impact our lives? Ever wanted to participate in a movement to change our world? Step back - be still, share compassion, and live gratefully! Today, travel gracefully along your path!

Jason Barger spent seven straight days flying 6,548 miles to seven different cities – living only in the airports the entire time. He compiled 10,000 minutes of observations at all four corners of the U.S. and reflected on how our airport experiences can teach us about our lives today. The airport metaphor leaps to life through profound anecdotes about an orphanage in Mexico, a summer camp in Ohio, bamboo, the homeless, climbing Mt. Everest, a hotdog grill, and much more. These funny and inspiring stories are reminders of how to change our daily world through thoughtful and compassionate action. Join the movement: Stepbackfromthebaggageclaim.com

Critic Reviews

"His book argues that air travel offers a potential for greater self-awareness. 'We just have to start small and start where we are. Why not start to change the world by the way we live at the airport?' he asks. Serenity now! It's evidently contagious." ( The New York Times)
