From the banks of the Ganges to the Himalayan roof of the world, this enthralling memoir is an unforgettable odyssey, a moving meditation on modern family life, and a spiritual quest, written with humor and honestyand filled with love and awe.

I found the author slightly annoying at times but overall I found the book calming, which helped me leading up to my surgery. Also now I really want to go to India and Nepal!
