"The first fifty or so years of Otto's journey were pretty good. He felt he had it all until one day he didn't. Looking for answers, he calls on his enlightened brother-in-law, Volya Rinpoche, a wise man with Russian roots, a Tibetan heritage, and an international reputation as a spiritual teacher ... Otto needs his brother-in-law's wisdom, ... and ... it turns out that Rinpoche himself is also looking for guidance. They embark on a road trip over highways and back roads across the middle of America, hoping to sort out what's troubling them. They encounter a diverse cast of characters along the way as they look for answers to life's mysteries"--Amazon.com.

Entirely unmoving unlike Breakfast with Buddha. So much observation of their surroundings and build up, yet no grand finale whatsoever...extreme details that did no work in the story development and left a very strange imperialistic feeling at the end to me...I did not like this book...reminded me of how every minority group suffers at the "adoption" of white groups...
