About the places he went to I wanted to like this book since it s so highly recommended but I ust couldn t get into it Tim Cahill went on the many adventures in these stories A uick tongued devil pointing out the absurd rode along Guess which one wrote the stories You ll meet Fabrice the con man a Liberian who runs his scam on Cahill while they do what all travelers do wait in this case for paperwork to clear You enter South African great white feeding grounds in a chicken wire cage You climb el Capitan knowing a life threatening maneuver with the rope is necessary at the top And in one you ust hike with the dog to not actually pray he is a lapsed Catholic in the woods for a little girl going a lapsed Catholic in the woods for a little girl going spine surgery Get the picture No hitting you over the head but tugging unmistakably at you in each one And like a sip of Pappy Van Winkle s the pleasure is immediate brief and one you ll want again When you read a book by the author you have a good idea of what you are going to get and that is short travel pieces that have humor and often a fair amount of beta male perspective and hipster travel pieces that have humor and often a fair amount of beta male perspective and hipster To be sure there are elements of this that I find less enjoyable but the humor and general sad sack nature of the author is enough to cover a multitude of sins it is easier to appreciate the author the less you take him seriously and the you take him as a figure of fun Like the author s other books this contains mostly articles that the author has written for magazines that I don t happen to read and that most people probably haven t bothered to read either Having them in a convenient and easy to read volume like this one is certainly worthwhile as it provides material that is funny and that occasionally offers larger insights though not as often as the author would wish on the world that the author finds himself traveling in with a low degree of competence at being sufficiently manly to handle his adventures properly Since this schtick is intentional though one doesn t feel too bad for the authorThe author begins this book somewhat aggressively in seeking to attack a reviewer who said t The title story is first and it s ust an incredible piece of empty narcissismNever managed to get into the stories following that which is a shame because they seemed uite wild adventures I m not naturally interested in short stories and nothing in a uick flick through grabbed me and the author isn t someone I wanted to spend any time with So That I really wanted to like this book Tim Cahill is a talented writer but I only connected to paragraphs of writing instead of the totality of this book I uit reading half way through.
