Praise For Why Travel Matters: A Guide to the Life-Changing Effects of Travel…
"In this invaluable book Craig Storti compellingly answers the question: "Why does travel matter?" He differentiates between travel and tourism then makes the case that travel guarantees that the person who set out on a journey is not the same one who returns. His treasury of quotes vividly illuminates his points, adding rich context to this captivating work. The farther I got into this book, the more I wished I had read it 50 years ago. Craig captures concepts that took me a long time to learn on my own---both about how the world works and about myself. His point: travel is both an inner and outer journey."—Sandra M. FowlerPresident-Elect SIETAR USA, -
"Storti's book is a graduate school seminar, an education on how to travel, even if you never go anywhere ever again. My suggestion for your next trip is that it's best if you forget the guidebooks, forget DK, Frommer or Lonely Planet, and slip instead into your backpack Why Travel Matters and read it on the flight. Then when you land, follow Craig Storti's advice."—-John Coyne, co-founder and editor, Peace Corps Worldwide, -
