Review by: Brian Almond on April 25, 2013 : star star star star star
Having had experience myself of travelling on business trips and working in the electronics industry, I could relate to Ben’s exploits. This brief journey through his life contains many humorous and sometimes tragic events covering people he met and places he visited. Ben’s writing style makes for enjoyable reading. I am looking forward to reading his book on religion as well.
