Publisher's Summary

When Adam Piggott rode his motorbike across Australia chasing a girl he barely knew, he didn't understand much about anything at all. He wanted to change his life, but he didn't know how or what to change. The girl was the catalyst that forced him out of his comfortable existence.
This is the story of how a young man with no direction ended up working as a river guide in a range of exotic locations around the world. And on the way, while battling crazy bosses, fearsome rivers, and hordes of charlatans, thieves, and witch doctors, he learned what it is to truly effect change in oneself. With humor and honesty, Piggott shows how it's possible for a young man to end up in extraordinary circumstances through a willingness to take a chance instead of settling for the safe option.

Great read

What made the experience of listening to Pushing Rubber Downhill the most enjoyable?

A well written book about a subject I know nothing about, but find interesting.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Adam, as it's all from his POV

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator read the book. Full stop. He's quite good at reading the book, but not so much as a voice actor.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, but I did plow through it because it was that entertaining. The audiobook version of "couldn't put it down"

Any additional comments?

Very much worth the money spent, an enjoyable audio book.
