this book before now I m a business owner and lead a small team I m also a mum and the messages through this book spoke to me in loud voices They say that your real true Camino experience starts after your Camino, and this is so true Thank you for this read I ve made many notes which I will return to time and time again A true inspiration Great read, quick and inspiring Enjoyed this very much especially how the author put his experiences into practice in his every day life Nice lessons Would compelled be the right word Inspired Even obliged After having read chapter 3 in your book I really could not explain the immense emotions I felt ESPECIALLY, after the story about how your Camino was saved by a kind stranger who made it possible to receive help even after the pharmacy was closed.See

compelled be the right word Inspired Even obliged After having read chapter 3 in your book I really could not explain the immense emotions I felt ESPECIALLY, after the story about how your Camino was saved by a kind stranger who made it possible to receive help even after the pharmacy was closed.See many people may see my mentality and think I am intense and hardcore but I had an experience while motorbiking through Vietnam alone where I may have not returned home if some teenagers had not helped me Reading this section of you being helped due to the kindness of others sent me back and reproduced those feelings Those feelings of being so lost, alone and helpless before I had found help and then the most amazing feelings after being helped and in how impactful kindness can be to others even when for the people helping it may be something so simple Typing this message sends all kinds of memories and emotions through me Although I did not experience your specific experience, I understand walking till your boots are soaked in blood and also the feelings of starting a journey with the onset of obstacles early on that truly begin to make you question many things Is this possible Can I do this What if So I just wanted to thank you and write to you to explain how deeply the end of the chapter affected me The feeling of being helped when you reach a point where mental toughness no longer can help yourself is indescribable It definitely taught me to be grateful, help others and be kind without expectation of anything in return Anyways, the kindness I continue to give has already been returned by the people who have helped me before Thank you for taking the time, energy and effort to put this book together Thank you for making the decision to go on this adventure as I am sure there will be many who will connect with what you describe, learn from what you learned and be inspired by what you experienced Thanks for checking out my new book I hike and bike long trails on vacations as a hobby, so the Camino de Santiago had been on my list for a while When I finally got on the Camino, however, I realized it was unlike any other trail My month long experience walking the Camino taught me values and lessons that have made me a better person and leader They helped me fix some sharp edges I had developed in my climb up my career ladder I wrote blogs about those lessons when I got home Those blogs Thanks for checking out my new book I hike and bike long trails on vacations as a hobby, so the Camino de Santiago had been on my list for a while When I finally got on the Camino, however, I realized it was unlike any other trail My month long experience walking the Camino taught me values and lessons that have made me a better person and leader They helped me fix some sharp edges I had developed in my climb up my career ladder I wrote blogs about those lessons when I got home Those blogs went viral and snowballed into this book I wrote this book so I could share those lessons with other people, especially those who may not be able to take a month off and walk across Spain To augment my own Camino stories and lessons, I interviewed over 100 other pilgrims from 16 countries Dozens of their wonderful stories and lessons made it into this book I hope you enjoy the book Here are reviews from some other readers The camino has spawned a multitude of books and blogs Victor Prince has taken a novel approach He has gathered reflections from a cross section of pilgrims and distilled this wisdom to provide lessons in leadership Whether that leadership is in business or life in general, we could all benefit from the advice it contains John Brierley, author of A Pilgrim s Guide to the Camino de Santiago and other bestselling travel books On the back of the passport, which is used to get stamps as each stage of the walk is completed, Prince noticed seven simple reminders of things pilgrims should do while on the Camino, which he used as the framework for his book The Camino Way, since they applied to work as well You don t need to walk the Camino to take those lessons into your own life Harvey Schachter, The Globe and Mail, Canada s largest newspaper Prince s is both a highly engaging story and a remarkably effective way to communicate business lessons In this first person narrative, Prince recounts his adventure, but unlike the typical travel diary, The Camino Way brilliantly draws continuous connections between the Camino, which started as a religious pilgrimage hundreds of years ago, and
