Hard to put this book down. Crisp writing on extreme experiences. Indeed a long-haul mover gains rare insights into the human condition.

I like road trip books such as "Travels with Charlie" so when I saw this book I picked it up and was not disappointed. I would give it a 4 on a scale of 5. It provided a good break from my usual mystery and what is wrong with America books.
Most chapters revolved around a single trip, delivery or experience. Many chapters did give the reader to reflect on life motivations and experiences. In away it spoke to some of the issues that "Hillbilly elegy" attempted to address.
I was repulsed by the portions of the introduction and was ready to return it to the library but did give it one more chance and it did get better.
