BOOK REVIEW

My Karate Odyssey - A Six Month Journey across North & Central America with my dogi, backpack & laptop as travelling companions

This is a review of an amazing book ... I started to glance at it ("to read it later") and couldn't put it down until I finished it ...

It is hard to describe exactly what this book is as it encompasses so much history (personal and political - in historical terms - not trying to convince anyone - in a well written detailed summary) and so much social interaction that it gives you a fascinating look at someone who has dedicated his life to improving not only himself but his martial arts .. and the people he has met on this journey. From someone who lives in the USA the observations were interesting to funny to downright insightful ... things that one never thinks about when you live in a place. Just for that alone this book is well worth the read.

The book is filled with positive quotes but unlike most people who just throw such quotes around you can tell Hoosain actually lives by and believes these points of philosophy ... I personally found the book fascinating to read the history, let alone the actual trip through America ... Hoosain should be very proud of this book!

I close this review with one of his insightful quotes

"So, feel the fear and live your dreams anyway! There are no guarantees, but the rewards are plentiful if you believe in yourself. No one is going to live your dreams for you. It’s up to you to create your own life. Why not have that life filled with dreams. A word of caution: While dreams are nice and they help you to plan for the future, your true goal in life is to be a responsible person to yourself."

If you need a Christmas present then put this book on your wish list!
