5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Read! Nov. 18 2013
Verified Purchase
I loved this book, it was witty and insightful. I loved that it was a look into a very interesting life, all while reading I was jealous that I haven't taken the time to travel more and be more adventurous. I could not put this book down, I especially loved the poetry inter mixed with the realism of the story

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll Want to Come Along for the Ride! Dec 13 2013

A joy ride of a read! From start to finish makes you long for a simpler time...when travel was full of adventure and one could live for weeks with anonymity; so delicious and sadly lacking in today's tech-bound world.
Mr. Drake is an excellent writer and as a magazine editor myself, I appreciate his storytelling and attention to detail....I cannot wait for his next book so I can delve further into his exciting travel-laden world.

This book was a present from an old friend on my 60th birthday... I loved the cover and I have to say this is a great book. Such terrific life, and the adventures Mr. Drake has had.. .. Growing up in England and then London in the 60's .. I had almost forgotten about all the great times I had during this period in New York and this book sort of rekindled all those memories and adventures I had. A perfect book for anyone interested in this time period, plus it was just an all around good read. I would recommend it to anyone who just wants to sit and read a good book or anyone about to go on the road .. Young or old this book is a gem.
