A great many of you have heard of the author Michael Crichton. He wrote & a great many other bestsellers. I havent read a single one of them but I am going to recommend a non-fiction book written by him. The title is very simple: Travels. It is a series of related essays on travel -- external travel & internal travel. I cannot recommend the book highly enough. It is the best book Ive read in the last thirty years.
