From the bestselling author of Jurassic Park, Timeline, and Sphere comes a deeply personal memoir full of fascinating adventures as he travels everywhere from the Mayan pyramids to Kilimanjaro.

Fueled by a powerful curiosity—and by a need to see, feel, and hear, firsthand and close-up—Michael Crichton's journeys have carried him into worlds diverse and compelling—swimming with mud sharks in Tahiti, tracking wild animals through the jungle of Rwanda. This is a record of those travels—an exhilarating quest across the familiar and exotic frontiers of the outer world, a determined odyssey into the unfathomable, spiritual depths of the inner world. It is an adventure of risk and rejuvenation, terror and wonder, as exciting as Michael Crichton's many masterful and widely heralded works of fiction.

For Michael Crichton, being a Harvard-trained physician, the author of two bestsellers, and a movie director is not enough. It is, he resolves, time to travel. From swimming with sharks in Tahiti to psychic experiences in the American desert, Crichton records his exhilarating quest through the familiar and exotic frontiers of the outer world.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Entertaining and, in the best sense of the word, unsettling.”

    Washington Post Book World

  • “His curiosity and self-deprecating humor animate recitals of adventures…his memoir includes essays on his medical training and forays into the psychic, including channeling and exorcism.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Crichton has had an interesting life, which he writes about in a crisp and disarmingly frank manner. His inner “travels” offer something for almost everyone.”

    Library Journal

  • “Narrator Christopher Lane portrays the late writer Crichton as a thoughtful and analytical observer of human behavior and a world traveler…As Crichton encounters various languages and dialects, Lane doesn’t stress them but slides through them subtly…Listener interest is heightened by the way Lane puts it all in front of us—quietly but with fine effect.”
