Most of us set out on the Jeweled Highway, whether we know it or not. We live at a time when the quest for meaning is an enormous force in the inner lives of millions of men and women. It is a key feature of our age, often hidden beneath the distractions of modern civilization. This is a memoir, filled with beauty, transcendence and vitality, of a search to find the secrets of life and give them to others. It is a gripping narrative of a life at the forefront of the consciousness movement, the holistic impulse to transform our culture that is a subtle but powerful force in the gradual emergence of a more sacred and ecological civilization.The story takes the reader from childhood in the Celtic world, through adolescence in gritty Northern England, to the outburst of freedom in the Sixties. After arriving in America, the author unexpectedly embarks on a spiritual quest into a new worldview, an opening to the mystical, and the beginning of a life dedicated to the creation of a new culture. On this luminous journey of awakening and commitment, we take that trip down Route 66, hitchhike to Maccu Picchu, cross the Eastern Himalayas into Tibet, and experience Russia and Eastern Europe in the aftermath of communism. We also gain an insider's knowledge of the origins of major centers of holistic learning like the New York Open Center, Omega Institute and the Findhorn Foundation in Scotland. How did these centers, that have served as such focal points for positive change, come from nowhere in their early years? And how are they part of a worldwide emergence of points of holistic learning all intent on bringing greater sanity, wisdom and awareness to the world?This is a new story for our time by a pioneer in a global movement. From the remote Welsh shoreline to the hectic streets of New York City, mixing adventure and enlightenment, this contemporary odyssey takes readers on an archetypal quest with honesty, humor and spiritual insight.

In the spirit of Steve Jobs and Moneyball, Elon Musk is both an illuminating and authorized look at the extraordinary life of one of Silicon Valley’s most exciting, unpredictable, and ambitious entrepreneurs—a real-life Tony Stark—and a fascinating exploration of the renewal of American invention and its new “makers.” Elon Musk spotlights the technology and vision of Elon Musk, the renowned entrepreneur and innovator behind SpaceX, Tesla, and SolarCity, who sold one of his Internet companies, PayPal, for $1.5 billion. Ashlee Vance captures the full spectacle and arc of the genius’s life and work, from his tumultuous upbringing in South Africa and flight to the United States to his dramatic technical innovations and entrepreneurial pursuits. Vance uses Musk’s story to explore one of the pressing questions of our age: can the nation of inventors and creators who led the modern world for a century still compete in an age of fierce global competition? He argues that Musk—one of the most unusual and striking figures in American business history—is a contemporary, visionary amalgam of legendary inventors and industrialists including Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Howard Hughes, and Steve Jobs. More than any other entrepreneur today, Musk has dedicated his energies and his own vast fortune to inventing a future that is as rich and far-reaching as the visionaries of the golden age of science-fiction fantasy. Thorough and insightful, Elon Musk brings to life a technology industry that is rapidly and dramatically changing by examining the life of one of its most powerful and influential titans.

Leon Logothetis’s life was well plotted out for him. He was to do well in school, go to university, get a job in finance, and spend the next fifty years of his life sitting behind a slab of wood, watching the rain-slicked streets of London from thirty floors above. For a long time, he followed that script, until one day, he finally realized he was living someone else’s life—a good one—but not one of his own choosing. So he walked out of that life, and discovered the one that took him around the world. Since then, Leon has driven a broken-down English taxicab across America, offering people free rides; ridden a vintage motorbike around the world, relying solely on the kindness of strangers; and followed a fellow traveler through India without ever knowing where he was going. He has visited more than 90 countries on every continent. Along the way, he learned something about the human spirit and about the heart of this world. He learned that he needed to shed his old ideas about who he was supposed to be in order to feel his soul rise to the surface and become the person he always longed to be. The wisest words he heard, and the greatest lessons he learned, came from everyday people he met on his travels. He became their accidental student, and after years of sharing those lessons through TV shows, college tours, books, and in the media, he realized that he had also become an accidental teacher. His experiences are more than a collection of stories, they have become a way of life—the Way of the Traveler. So, what is the Way of the Traveler? It’s a roadmap to living your best life, loving with all your heart, and exploring the world—both the great and adventurous one waiting outside your door, and the even greater, more adventurous one waiting within your soul. Weaving together Leon’s hilarious and heartwarming stories of his misadventures on the road with simple but profound exercises to help you uncover your true path, Live, Love, Explore will teach you how to live fully and without regrets. It’s not to say that everyone who reads it will have to go to the ends of the world. Because you don’t have to go to Mongolia to discover the truths that lie inside. No, those life lessons can just as easily be learned from the people all around you--the chap serving you coffee at Starbucks, the woman sitting next to you on a plane, your co-workers, family, and friends. There’s an entire world of people willing to teach you their lessons if you’re willing to learn. And by opening yourself up to new adventures, by recognizing that you have the freedom to choose your own road, you’ll find something else that has been hiding in plain sight: you’ll find the life of which you have always dreamed… and the curiosity and courage it takes to make that life happen.
