Never have I found such a great book for summer reading, and in this case, summer back-packing. This heavy 900-page + non-fiction (!!!) tome by Gregory David Robert, reads like an epic thriller, taking you on a journey from a jail break in Australia to the underbelly of Bombay mafia,  combat zones in Afghanistan and back. It is incredible to think that the story is true, and the man who wrote it real. I am usually daunted by such a page-count, but remarkably, finished the book in 1o days, for it is truly the definition of a page-turner. I dare you to put it down after reading just the first page!
