While it took me a while to get through, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Tells of a round-the-world motorcycle trip taken by actors Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman from London to New York. It gets deep as they go across Europe to Prague, and then into Slovenia and Ukraine before tackling Kazakhstan, Russia, Mongolia and Siberia before going from Alaska down through Canada and the US to New York.
There's also a TV series they did about this which helped pay for the trip. The TV stuff is good (at least what I've seen so far), but the book is better, going into more detail. I think that motorcycle buffs and travel enthusiasts will get the most out of this book.

If you're a fan of the show, this is a great companion piece. It goes deeper into Charley and Ewan's travels and has loads of pictures they took along the way.

The best part about this book is the friendship between Ewan and his best friend Charley. It's their friendship that keeps them going, esp when the trip becomes stressful and difficult in Mongolia and Russia.
Ewan is also a very poignant and emotional writer, which I found surprisingly given that he's portrayed some macho men on film.

Recommend the book over the DVD.
