HASH(0x9d155d08) out of 5 stars Living every desk jockey's fantasy life Nov. 30 2010
By theglobalguy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I met Ian in Nepal when he and I happened to be on the same trek to Everest Base Camp. I had a vague recollection of the story of the guy who put his entire life up on E-bay, and was amazed at the coincidence that would bring that guy into my own life. Ian was a joy to travel with, and his stories of his adventures kept me laughing and entertained through our two week journey. When he told me that he was thinking of turning the entire adventure into a book, I couldn't wait to read it. Well, now that the book is published, I'm pleased to have been able to finally read about his back story, previous adventures, and the events that followed his and my adventure together.

The book is well written, with a combination of blog entries and personnal narration. Switching between the styles is easy on the brain, and never feels disruptive to the narrative. His writing is laid back, funny, and very personal at times. This is a person who has had more than his share of personal challenges, and been able to find the good in everything. It's a great testimony to the human spirit, and the tendency of humankind to help a traveler, no matter where he hails from.

HASH(0xa00f0534) out of 5 stars It's about the journey... Dec 21 2010
By RunsWithScissors - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I sat down to read this book thinking I would just start it, but could not put it down! I read the entire book in one sitting. When I was done, I felt that I had traveled around the world with Ian, and was better for it. I cheered with him, cried with him, and relived the joy of healing from a broken heart. I was inspired. The book is framed around Ian's goals, but really it's about so much more. The very thing that catapulted Ian into action worldwide is what brought him such joy in the end, with a hell of a journey along the way.

The writing flows well, is accessible and enjoyable with just enough detail. I felt I was along for the ride, and was welcomed to join in the fun, just as Ian so freely shared his goals with so many others. The goals are interesting and enjoyable, and the people Ian meets are just as much fun as the goals. I felt I shared parts of my bucket list with Ian, and although he beat me to it, his accounts invite me to feel heroic and relaxed enough to follow. (Except, I'll never run with the bulls!) There are lots of good travel tips. The book reads in parts like a helpful TripTik, and is very informative about details that matter.

The book reminds us that life is not as much about the destination as it is about the journey, that we are all more alike than different, and that anything done with good intentions and an open heart can't be wrong. Oh, and there's a very happy ending. Expect tears again. It's a good thing.

HASH(0x9dbca51c) out of 5 stars A great read for a real life adventure! Nov. 29 2010
By Sonny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Having experienced many of the same struggles as Ian, I easily identified with his unique and challenging journey through life, this world and the most difficult: Where am I going? How will I get there? Will I find the true love of my life? I HIGHLY recommend this book for so many reasons but mostly because Ian's casual attitude comes through his writing. You experience the same highs and lows that people experience when traveling. Forcing himself to trust in his fellow man and hoping for the best in total strangers can be daunting and a little scary. Ian's two year odyssey will give you much to ponder as well as practical advise for globe trotting on a budget. Pick up this book and you will have a hard time putting it down! Congrats Ian!

HASH(0xa00f0bac) out of 5 stars Most Fascinating Story I've Ever Been A Part Of Nov. 27 2010
By Journalist2010 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a true story, fascinating as it is, I was able to experience Usher's journey through his blog and a few of his goals which I had the opportunity to assist with. I'm reading my copy of this book today, and it's just as exciting to read with all the additional information. I'm so happy that he even reached Goal #101, which you'll have to read the book to find out what that was!!! :) Happy trails to Usher, and all the readers out there.

HASH(0xa00f0b58) out of 5 stars Ees Possible!! Dec 7 2010
By Colorado Triman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's really neat to read a true success story about an average guy who accomplishes extraordinary things by thinking outside the box, taking a few risks, and choosing prosperity in the face of adversity. I was first intrigued by Ian's story when "A life for Sale" was a prominent story on Yahoo News. His circumstances were similar to many but what he chose to do took some guts and seemed a bit inspirational. I had the opportunity to meet this guy and participate in a few of his goals - he is a genuine good guy with an amazing "can do" attitude. That attitude combined with his willingness to try just about anything makes for some interesting reading. He kind of brings out the kid in all of us that is just open minded and up for the next adventure. A pleasurable read that helps us all recognize what "Ees Possible"
