Straight from College, into New York, dreaming of better, Carl lists seven cities: London, Paris, Barcelona, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, and Zurich. He saves his money, and embarks on a journey to find, after seeing, experiencing each firsthand, where is the best place to settle down, raise a family, give his years of work to, retire, live out his days in. When his path happens to cross with long-lost-friend-from-high-school Preston Bank, things shift into high gear. The two-both philosophers in their own rite-dialogue in parks throughout Europe-where Preston, realizing his 'Knowledge Quest', spends his days reading streams of books and watching DVDs on his laptop.
Preston's one 'lifeline to the earth', supermodel girlfriend Chevon Crester, casts an eye on Carl, and everything slings climactic. High quantity and quality of rich scenes carry you through 7 of the hippest, most happening and fun cities on Earth-each city 'nailed' by Carl at end of chapter; crafted into a few-sentenced 'this-is-what-it-is' 'nutshell'.
Opening doors for you to consider what comprises 'best' in your thinking. Go on the adventure-soaring mind up into, through, deep philosophical realms en route!
