To recapture "the sense that the sidewalk in front of [his] house is connected, physically, with every other place on Earth" -- and inspired by Tibetan ritual, Chinese fortune cookies and Kurt Vonnegut Jr.'s axiom that "Strange travel suggestions are dancing lessons from God" -- Greenwald set himself a unique fortieth birthday challenge: "To travel from Oakland, California, to Oakland, California, without leaving the ground." This is the story of his journey around a planet covered with very good people and very bad roads.
