Frequently anthologized, his third book, Globetrotter Dogma: 100 Canons for Escaping the Rat Race & Exploring the World, was cited by National Geographic as one of “Ten better choices: insightful travelogues that will inspire rather than dictate.” (Geographic’s list included The Travels of Marco Polo, by Marco Polo) His books include The Frugal Globetrotter and In Search of Adventure: A Wild Travel Anthology.
A fourth book about the wisdom of strangers is coming soon … a Street Anthropologist’s Guide to Global Knowledge … a 108-country wander in search of unsung hero happiness.
