Book Description: 

From the bestselling author of Jurassic Park, Timeline, and Sphere comes a deeply personal memoir full of fascinating adventures as he travels everywhere from the Mayan pyramids to Kilimanjaro.

Fueled by a powerful curiosity―and by a need to see, feel, and hear, firsthand and close-up―Michael Crichton’s journeys have carried him into worlds diverse and compelling―swimming with mud sharks in Tahiti, tracking wild animals through the jungle of Rwanda. This is a record of those travels―an exhilarating quest across the familiar and exotic frontiers of the outer world, a determined odyssey into the unfathomable, spiritual depths of the inner world. It is an adventure of risk and rejuvenation, terror and wonder, as exciting as Michael Crichton’s many masterful and widely heralded works of fiction.

For Michael Crichton, being a Harvard-trained physician, the author of two bestsellers, and a movie director is not enough. It is, he resolves, time to travel. From swimming with sharks in Tahiti to psychic experiences in the American desert, Crichton records his exhilarating quest through the familiar and exotic frontiers of the outer world.

Review

This book is partly a travelogue of the many travels of author Michael Crichton, yet it is much more.  It gives you a glimpse into the man’s very soul to see how his life experiences have shaped him into becoming who is his.  While I usually read his fiction work, I loved that this was a audio version as I felt like I was right there with him as the book was read to me.  I listened on my long commute to and from work and I found myself longing for that time in the car when I could listen to Crichton’s adventures and dream of planning my own adventures.  I was very pleased with this audiobook and highly recommend it!
