Want Some Great Summer Reading? Check Out This Book!

What is your favorite place on Earth? This is the question that award-winning travel writer Jerry Camarillo Dunn, Jr. asked the most celebrated people of our time, ranging from the Dalai Lama to Robin Williams.

The result: A completely original portrait of our astonishing world, as seen through their eyes. The worldwide “who’s who” includes actors Will Ferrell, Morgan Freeman, and Natalie Portman • U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor • singer James Taylor • astronaut Buzz Aldrin • filmmaker George Lucas • humorist Dave Barry • ocean explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau • sitar master Ravi Shankar • basketball great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar • fashion designer Calvin Klein • mind/body medicine pioneer Deepak Chopra • musicians Loretta Lynn and Josh Groban • The Simpsons creator Matt Groening • chefs Wolfgang Puck and Alice Waters • Jeopardy host Alex Trebek • authors Ray Bradbury and T.C. Boyle • comics Jerry Seinfeld and Jeff Foxworthy • entrepreneurs Donald Trump and Richard Branson • film critic Leonard Maltin • Craig “craigslist” Newmark • skateboarder Tony Hawk • and many others.

Their travel discoveries are fascinating and quirky: A lost city in Sri Lanka. The Pasadena Rose Parade. A private island in the Caribbean. A wild dog research camp in Botswana. The Moscow Country Club. A surfing paradise in Fiji. The Left Bank in Paris. A softball field in New York’s Central Park. A winding road on Maui. Some places are beautiful, others surprising – but all hold special appeal and reveal famous personalities as never before.

The book includes intriguing information about each place and even tells how to visit them. But the real allure is the entertaining narrative, inviting readers to experience the excitement of traveling with these celebrated personalities to their favorite places on Earth.
