can understand that some could be bored by details of travel but I enjoyed the rest it gave my mind at intervals because he hits on some heavy stuff...he lived long enough to observe the massive global cultural and technological innovations which transformed the way life and political systems of the ORIENT. He helped birth where we are now. a Keen Observer and dedicated educator

What a journey!
Almost 27 hours of listening just passed by. A journey through a year in Joseph Campbells life when he is 50 years old and taking a year off from his normal job as a teacher and instead exploaring the Oriental world with his unique bagage of wisdom, curiousity and humility. Its very entertaining, very enjoyable and educational. The world in 1954 and 1955, the year when this book takes place, is of course very much different world from today. With this book its very much like jumping into that swarm of cultures and people like an authentic time machine that you will love if you have any likes or experiences of the oriental world yourself.
The narrator is brilliant too!
