Hard to read

I m glad I read it because it opened my eyes to traveling with intention, but I can’t say I liked it. I would not have read this except for school. Wouldn’t recommend it either.

a terrible book

if you want to waste your money and time, buy this book. i like alan de botton's speaks and already had seen a lot on youtube. so instead of buying this book and wasting your money and time, go to youtube and see his speaks for free. this book is about everything, but the art of travel.

Dull, suggestions for better alternatives

I listened to about forty-five minutes of this book (almost a fifth of it) only to hear several long lists of what various characters ordered in restaurants and a long description of the basis of the opinion that imagination is better than travel. After that I gave up.

If you were drawn in by the title, like I was, I would recommend skipping this actual book and instead going for The Art of Pilgrimage or Vagabonding, either of which delivers much better what this one's title promised than it does.
