Without a map, 19-year-old Jake Ducey leaves behind a drug-filled life and college basketball scholarship to wander the world and prove we can find our dreams by following our heart. On the outskirts of civilization, often uncertain, without money and near death, he finds that everything he was seeking in the world was within him the whole time. Journeying from Guatemala to Australia, Indonesia to Thailand, and ending with fourteen days of silent meditation, he shows that our destiny is in reach if we only look within ourselves first.

The writing was both flowery and choppy. The author seems sincere but some of the generalizations and assumptions don’t have much depth. This story is very one note
I loved it. I enjoyed Jakes courage and brutal honesty with the audience and himself. it is a truly inspiring read that Willard you to follow your heart and do good in the world. If only one at of every 10 people were like Jake world be a better place.
Wishing this book had been a part of my life when I was in my 20's. I want both of my boys to grow up with the knowledge and inner strength this book can reach. Give, love, possessions are not the key to happiness...thank you!
"Exciting experiences put into words"
Jake shares his honest experiences from his journey. Anyone can learn from his story and be inspired - and might take a leap of faith too.
I like the story and the writer, but felt at some points that the writing was a bit immature and overly ecstatic. Definitely inspiring stuff !
"Six Month Journey"
This book was an awesomely insightful book for those seeking self-help. This young author is wise beyond his years (My opinion). Enough that myself, being older and supposedly wiser was touched by his story. Short, sweet, and very nicely written. May his message resonate with you as well. And that's just his first book...
