What? I'm the only 2nd person to review this book? It's a must read! I actually listened to it twice.
I've listened to a lot of memoirs but they are usually by politicians heavily edited by a government first.
This is an awesome adventure story!
The first time I listened to it, I thought it was so dam good I had to listen to it again...
It was then that I heard the layers of dysfunction bleed thru. This guy tries to convince us that he has learned about life by admitting his down falls and failings thru his experience of life. Yet, he seems to continue to think that he is always right but has learned to say sorry when wrong or (perceived wrong). Admittedly, his main means of therapy consists of 12 steps; a great starting place. But it's obvious that he has darker issues never really dealt with. Part of the reason why I enjoyed this book so much.
His message of truly learning life thru pain and fear is very poignant. I especially enjoyed/cringed how he verbally abuses others in his adventures to get this message across; very passive aggressive of him. But he sugar coats all of this with his outreach to humanity.
No tongue in cheek. This is a great book on so many dysfunctional/psychological levels. Plus, it's an incredible adventure book. I can't believe more people haven't listened to it.

Loved this. Absolutely fantastic. Really inspirational.
I got a lot of enjoyment out of listening while going for a jog.
I found this book to be incredibly honest as well as motivating. Charlie Engle does not big note himself. He discusses his flaws and successes with equal emphasis. Great great book
