Publishers Weekly, 5/20/13
"Gross talks about the 55-year-old Turkish farmer in whose apple orchards he volunteered for several days in exchange for food and lodging. Their meeting affected him tremendously, giving him greater confidence. Reflections and experiences like these keep Gross's work from getting too self-involved and add substance to what could have been one travel writer's self-indulgent catch-all."

New York Times Book Review, 6/2/13
"A joyful meditation on the spontaneity and unpredictability of the traveling life."

"[Gross] writes with uncommon perceptiveness about what it means to cross borders, to break bread with strangers, and to come home again. Full of wonderful stories of his round-the-globe adventures, Gross's book is a welcome reminder that the best moments as a traveler--like the best parts of being a dad--happen when you set off for parts unknown."

Johns Hopkins Magazine, Summer 2013
"Turk offers [Gross's] thoughts on travel thus far, roaming through his misadventures to suggest a perspective that fellow travelers can remember while on their own excursions...creating a thoughtful, episodic memoir as practical guidebook...Turk is an old-fashioned approach to a very new thing: a primer on navigating global travel in the information-overloaded 21st century."
