Publisher's Summary

Polly Letofsky left her Colorado home and headed west across four continents and over 14,000 miles - by foot - to become the first woman to walk around the world. In a spirit of adventure, along with the goal of raising global awareness for breast cancer, strangers welcomed her into their homes. The world had embraced her. But in the middle of Polly's journey, 9/11 flung us all into a crossroads in world history, and she found herself navigating a vastly changing world.

So much fun to listen to while I "walk along"!

If you could sum up 3mph: The Adventures of One Woman's Walk Around the World in three words, what would they be?

Inspiring, adventure, connections

Who was your favorite character and why?

Polly herself! I love the detailed descriptions of the people she met and experiences she had - especially with local foods and customs.

What does Polly Letofsky bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I did read the book and loved it. But hearing Polly tell her story adds so much more color and fun to it. Listening to the book was like hanging out with Polly and listening to her in person.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

It had nothing to do with the shoes.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommended!

Wow ...What an amazing woman

Polly is one strong and courageous woman. Her journey was not an easy one but she put one foot in front of the other to accomplish her dream of walking around the world and raising awareness for breast cancer. The book is fantastic and I enjoyed ever minute of it and would highly recommend it to others.

Outstanding Narration

A well written adventure of a courageous lady. The narration was the most remarkable that I have ever listened to. The voices and the feeling that Polly puts into reading her own work overshadows any professional reading of any audiobook. I challenge anyone to better this. Truly an Oscar-worthy performance.

Inspiring and roll on the floor hilarious!

An incredible story comprised of hundreds of detailed little memories & moments that are recounted in Polly's own worlds. She chats to us like an old friend as we walk alongside her, through her epic walk around the world. You feel every step, every frustration & every small victory through her eyes, (and feet!)

Fulfilling dreams

Anytime I hear a story about someone who made a huge plan or dream and then saw it through, I'm fascinated. The sheer will required to walk across the planet is unimaginable.

My only issue with Polly and her book is that she vehemently defends the stereotypes many of us have for Americas, by proving them. She does come across as a bit arrogant and ignorant of the rest of the world and the cultural differences, despite walking across the globe and she's definitely loud and a bit screechy and over-the-top.
