My (And the author's) favorite of his many writings. I read it after reading a number of his other books and saw in it the living reality of his philosophy. On the surface it is a mere telling of his travels in the East. Underneath it is akin to his Acts of the Apostles. The way he expresses his valuation of the lowliest of people in the slums of Calcutta brings tears to my eyes every time I read this book. Honestly I wouldn't recommend that this be the first of Buscaglia's works you read. Or th ...more

Speaking of identity quests through Asia, this guy covers a lot of ground. I like that he lets stories speak for themselves instead of miring them in gobble-dee-gook, and there are some amazing stories about connections between human beings, but it was not as life-changing as the 1970s back cover promised.
This book purports to be the author's personal spiritual journey, but really, it's a story of his travels around the world. There really isn't much spirituality in the book, except for the usual "we are all one" kind of epiphany. There are plenty of much better spiritual journey stories out there. But if you are interested in a man's travels through mostly Asian countries in the 1960's & 70's, you might find this interesting.
This book is the reason I wanted to travel the world. And I did do just that. Leo inspired me to get out there and see the great big world and all the people who are just like me, only different. I learned that everyone really has the same wants and fears- and the Jesus is the answer for everyone. Great book!
This book is about Leo Buscaglia's travels through Asia. What I learnt was that sometimes we should not judge a book by its cover (people are not always what/how they appear at first) and also to be open to new experiences, to be flexible otherwise you might lose out on some wonderful experiences.

Nice book, but suspense is missing!!!

I like Buscaglia's gentle style and his drive to see not just the tourist attractions while traveling but to meet the every day people of each place . His accounts are fascinating to read and clearly he had a lot of fun.

Great read, though as the author suggests I prefer to take my own path - not merely follow his.

One of the better travel books I've read. I like that Sri Lanka is still Ceylon in this one.
