This is one of those books I'll keep rereading. The writing is clear and simple, but also sublime and even a bit mischeviouis. Here is a man who does not take himself seriously, but has a deep respect for his native India and the people who live there. This leads him to ride his Royal Enfield on a quest to the northern region of India where he discovers the great spaces, and the combined beauty and tragedy of this region. If you're interested in motorcycling, or India, or simple and fun adventure, then give this a read. It is written with the same humility and poignancy along the lines of the DVDs "One Crazy Ride," and "Riding Solo to the Top of the World," which I also recommend you watch if this book hits the spot for you. A great book. Get it.
