thoughts:fun. campy. a bit preachy at times. basically everything the television show is condensed into a book.
a memoir of the host of syfy's destination truth, this book is comprised of a collection of essays and accounts of josh gate's travels--both before the tv show and during. it has moments of humor, sarcasm, profundity, and wit. it also has a small amount of gates' preaching about traveling/travelers/tourists/stupid americans.
all in all it was a quick, fun read that got me through a really busy and stressful couple weeks.
probable next read: special topics in calamity physics by marisha pessl
