"Andrew is the quintessential life auteur. I sat down to read with an hour to spare, and at midnight reluctantly set this cheeky escapade aside.  It's more than an adventure – it's a world tour of impressive accomplishments and sage observations. Andrew has Attitude. His eye is sharp. He travels and works all over the world, speaks several languages, and takes no prisoners. It's a kick to ride along." ~ Darrell Cavan, Author

"Highly recommend! An adventurous story from a true adventurer. The book has vibrant dynamics and energy – and you can explore many exciting and meaningful stories from all around the globe."

"A page turner from the very beginning! Mr. Reilly has the ability, which really good authors have, to "transport you" to different lands in a different time. In addition to being a talented writer, he is extremely well traveled and that combination makes this book a fascinating read. His fun adventures have given me the urge to travel again, and although my travels might not be as adventurous and romantic as Reilly's, I will appreciate them more thanks to the author's fascinating journey shared in his book!"  ~ Alish DuPont, Film Producer (5 Stars)

"Andrew Reilly's reporting is full of insights and opinions about the customs, histories, political conflicts, hypocrisies, and delights, as well as the horrors he has encountered in Russia, China, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and more. He writes with verve about the many cities and countries where he has lived and worked, some of them places readers might themselves feel inspired to visit. Bravo!" ~ Fred Ferraris, Author (4 Stars)

"A worthy read. Andrew’s fierce loyalty to humanity, honed via this wild Hemingway-like adventure, is told with abrupt honesty and intelligence. You are left feeling how it must have been sitting in the lobby of a hotel with someone who just returned from Russia, Afghanistan, Cuba, Saudi Arabia, and regaling all present with their well earned opinions."  ~ Markus Flanagan, Television Actor (5 Stars)
