    The title is a bit misleading,this book is not entirely about travel,but a variety of subjects.Crichton starts off with his difficult relationship with his father and not feeling any grief when his father died.In addition to travel,the book is also about his medical career and the least interesting part to me was his belief in psychics.An intrepid traveler,the places he chooses to visit are fairly unusual and show his fondness for adventure.Of particular interest to me were the two

    At first when I started this I was like wtf He s talking about being in med school and I thought Oh no This is going to be boarding as hell This turned out to be a really great book This isn t your standard memoir Each part where Crichton tells about a trip he toke, it is written like a really great short story I really enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it to everyone I was actually sad when I finished with it He published this right before publishing Jurassic Park I really wi A

    I found it appalling that Michael Crichton so calmly depicts waiting outside a brothel in Asia while his host has sex with children I suppose we re supposed to think he s a good guy for not indulging himself, but the fact that he is having a conversation with someone while they wait, and never objecting or contacting authorities is shocking to me As Edmund Burke said, all that s necessary for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing After reading this book, I don t know that I d even b I fou

    There are lots of good reasons not to like or to outright dislike Michael Crichton s Travels.He shares very directly his understanding about how women differ from men during the 1980s compared to his experiences in the 60s and 70s He studies things like psychic powers and auras and spoon bending He gets married again and again He might be at his most sympathetic while talking to a cactus The chapter on Sean Connery felt too much like name dropping though I liked Connery s advice always tel There are lot

    Usually I avoid the most popular books, but because of a high recommendation I decided to read up on Michael Crichton, the author of books like Jurassic Park and Congo.The book begins with Michael, the medical student, figuring out how to use a chainsaw to cut the head of a cadaver in half First I thought that he was a de Vinci doing some research for a book However, he did attend medical school supported by his side job of writing books In the end he just didn t fit the philosophy and soci Usually I avoid the

    Travels is one of my favorite books I ve read it at least three times in my life It is Michael Crichton s autobiography detailing his life in medical school, but most of all his travels around the world Each chapter is a new adventure and Dr Crichton makes you feel as if you are right there with him I definitely recommend this book to anyone that likes to travel or just wants a fun, entertaining, read.

    the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. T.S EliotI believe that if you have truly travelled, you will no longer be the same person you started out as So for me, travel automatically also includes inner change, be it intellectual, emotional, spiritual, social or personal I m also slowly learning the significance of events that change you as a person things that may not necessarily be immediately significant but add up to make the end of all our exploring will be

    Up date 15 11 17I don t know why I was being coy in this review Michael Crichton describes waiting for a mutual friend to come back from molesting a child, then listens to the man s description of what happened, without comment or criticism But Crichton does complain a page later when the locals started laughing about his height What a fucking asshole Is anyone surprised that Hollywood is still full of fucking assholes This was a profoundly unpleasant, self centered, non practicing doctor w Up date 15 11 17I don t know why I was b

    This book could be divided into three parts Crichton s time as a medical student at Harvard his travels and his foray into psychic stuff, so I ll divide my review up the same way Harvard Medical School I love this book so much, and I haven t even reached the part that I picked the book up for the travels, of course In this first part, Crichton describes his time as a medical student at Harvard and what lead him to quitting medicine just as he graduated to become a writer instead And This book could be divided into three parts Crichton s time as
