Lots to like about Neil Peart's story. He is best when he is examining his process of recovery against the backdrop of his experiences while traveling. When he just starts to go on about his situation without that backdrop of travel, to me, it wasn't as engaging, especially when he ends his journey so abruptly. I do like how he describes his experiences and I found his perspective interesting, certainly worth reading over the few bumps and jolts here and there. I'm looking forward to more of his writing on traveling and being on tour.

spoiler: In order to deal with the grief of such incredible lose, he hit the road to accumulate experiences to nurture his soul and dull the pain. When the journey ends because he meets somebody to love, it feels like the Ghost Rider's journey was unnecessary. He concludes that the only reason the book got written is because of her, but he discusses making his notes into a book long before he meets her. The ending just didn't make sense. But if that is how he truly feels...
