    1. The author uses his life experiences of travel to help others live the life of their dreams. If you want to live an adventurous and fulfilling life you need to be willing to reach out to others. By taking risks and getting out of your comfort zone makes a person vulnerable but life becomes richer as a result. We need to a have continual desire to keep learning and never lose the childlike wonder and curiosity about life. Sometimes we need to be willing to put down our electronic devices and actu [...]


    2. Disclaimer: Read this as an ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.After the strange year that 2016 has been, I really needed a nice positive read like Leon Logothetis's "Live, Love, Explore". I don't know if I could ever be a "Traveler" or fully embrace the 'way of the traveler' but there are good ideas and bits of advice in this book. In addition, the personal path that Mr Logothetis's shares is inspirational in how relate-able it is. Again, I may not want to go all-in as how Mr Logothe [...]


    3. Live, Love, Explore definitely inspired me. I coauthored a biography on Jack Kerouac, whose writing deeply influenced my life. After college, I went backpacking across Europe, and when I got a job in book publishing I spent my first paid vacation taking a Greyhound bus across the US. The screenwriter for The Motorcycle Diaries, the film that inspired Logothetis to take up his travels, is the same screenwriter who recently did the film adaptation of Kerouac’s On the Road, and I met and took a w [...]


    4. I didn't actually finish reading this book because it was too annoying to finish. Like I've previously said, I like the stories, but I hate the pretentious ~way of the traveler~ bs over and over and over again. It's a broken record. And by the time you get settled into reading, it makes you do a self-help prompt.


    5. A pretty easy read about the road to self-discovery with a built-in workbook to help you flesh out your hopes and dreams, as well as what might lead you to yours if you don't know yet. It was very refreshing to be reminded that there is no right path, and while no new knowledge was dispensed here, it was a cool way to spend a couple of days digging into what I want for myself.


    6. By far one of my favorite “self help” or more accurate “self-discovery” books I’ve ever come across. I related to Leon on pretty much every page of this book. I haven’t had quite the same travel experiences but every time I have traveled I’ve learned so much about myself. This book is fantastic. I highly recommend it to anyone wondering if there is more to life and more to our journey.



    7. I wanted to like this book more but it wasn't what I thought it was going to be and I was disappointed. I ordered it after reading a chapter of it in the Reader's Digest when he tells his story of being dropped off in an Indian slum for the day with no shoes, shirt or belongings and had to learn to make friends. I was looking for a book about self discovery through traveling but it was more like a book about his own self discovery, a workbook for your own self discovery and some travel anecdotes [...]


    8. For me this book started out in an upward direction and then plateaued, and stalled. It felt a bit directionless as far as a way to live, maybe a bit too Peter Pan for my tastes.


    9. Inspiring I just gotta fill in the blanks I decided to leave empty later i enjoyed Leon's energy and wisdom Oi!!!


    10. This has by far been the best book that one can read this year. You dont need to be an explorer or an adventurer to read this. This book is for everyone. Everyone who wants to do an honest analysis for herself/himself. New concepts to see yourself , new ideas to make your life more lively and new venues to explore within and off course outside.With abundance of inspiration and an engaging format this book will never let you skip in between the pages.


    11. If you are in a rut and looking for a way out, you might want to follow the author example and travel as much as possible. New experiences, place, and people help the author redefine what he want to do and who he wanted to be. It was not an overnight decision and he did not quit and walk away from the boredom. Each chapter focuses on a general aspect or obstacles and includes a section at the end to review and reflect on the reader’s own personal situation. An index is provided.
