I loved this book. Alastair is a great author and I really enjoy hearing his books through his own voice. Ive begun trying some of the microadventures in this book, and spent the night camping in my front yard just the other day, watching the sunrise and enjoying the cold, foggy morning. Read this book and apply it to your own life, you wont regret it!
