In a time of economic anxiety, global terror, and shaken confidence, the Star of the National Geographic Channel’s Amazing Adventures of a Nobody, Leon Logothetis, shows us what is good about mankind: the simple calling people have to connect to others.
Tired of his disconnected life and uninspiring job, Leon Logothetis leaves it all behind—job, money, home, even his cell phone—and hits the road with nothing but the clothes on his back and five dollars in his pocket, relying on the kindness of strangers and the serendipity of the open road for his daily keep.
Along the way, Leon offers up the intriguing and charming tales gathered along his one-of-a-kind journey riding in trains and buses and big rigs and classic cars; sleeping on streets and couches and firehouses; meeting pimps and preachers, astronauts and single moms, celebrities and homeless families, veterans and communists. Each day of his journey, we catch sight of the invisible spiritual underpinning of society in these stories of companionship—and sheer adventure—that prove that the kind, good soul of mankind has not been lost.

“Masterful story telling! Leon begins his journey as a merry prankster and ends a grinning philosopher. Really funny—and insightful, too.” —Karen Salmansohn, NY Times best-selling self-help author, Oprah.com Relationship Columnist, AOL Career Coach
“A great read, and who knows, you may find your true calling by the end of it all!” —Stephen Viscusi, America’s Workplace Guru and Best-selling Author of Bulletproof Your Job: 4 Simple Strategies to Ride Out the Rough Times and Come Out On Top at Work
