The writing flows well, is accessible and enjoyable with just enough detail. I felt I was along for the ride, and was welcomed to join in the fun, just as Ian so freely shared his goals with so many others. The goals are interesting and enjoyable, and the people Ian meets are just as much fun as the goals. I felt I shared parts of my bucket list with Ian, and although he beat me to it, his accounts invite me to feel heroic and relaxed enough to follow. (Except, I'll never run with the bulls!) There are lots of good travel tips. The book reads in parts like a helpful TripTik, and is very informative about details that matter.
The book reminds us that life is not as much about the destination as it is about the journey, that we are all more alike than different, and that anything done with good intentions and an open heart can't be wrong. Oh, and there's a very happy ending. Expect tears again. It's a good thing.
Initially, I was skeptical about a travel book with a central premise of "checklisting" - to tick off a bunch of items on your bucket list just to say you've done it. One of the risks is how superficial it can be, without delving deeper into the experience of it. This can make the audience feel short-changed, as if watching from the outside in and not being a part of the adventure. "Hey look! I did this! So awesome! Next!" But not this book. Not Ian Usher. He wants you to be inside his mind, he wants to share all of his reactions and emotional ups and downs with you as he goes through each event, which makes this book one of my top 3 "must-recommend" books to travel buddies.
Ian absolutely bears his soul to the reader in his book. He seems like a genuinely nice guy that you want to have a pint of beer with, and you want to root for him while he sorts out his life after having gone through a very painful divorce. He took up traveling, 100 goals in 100 weeks, as a way of re-discovering himself, and that's what this book's about. He did a masterful job of sharing just the right amount of details of each of his goals accomplished, enough to make you feel as if you're part of the experience, but just condensed enough to keep the page count to a decent 376 pages while pulling you along.
Ian's youthful enthusiasm for traveling is very endearing to the reader. He has no ego at all, just a genuinely humble guy who seems to be amazed by turns of good fortune and the goodness of strangers who came out to help him along his many goals. Somewhere along his journey, he began to embrace his 100 goals as just a framework for traveling; a mean of meeting strangers and enjoying new experience with friends in diverse places, rather than merely checklisting. And that's absolutely what traveling's supposed to be about.
Kudos, Ian Usher. I cannot emphasize enough what an excellent, well-written travel book this is, and I hope to meet you some day.
I have been waiting anxiously for the story behind the story, and Ian did not disappoint. In this honest memoir, Ian reveals the amazing and true story of fulfilling a bucket-list of goals -- something most of us talk about, but don't actually do. But Ian also reveals the emotions and balance between connecting with people and moving on to experience new adventures... the loneliness from losing past relationships and the excitement from finding new ones.
This is a story that inspires us all to live and love fully... Get it!
