Albert Podell embarked upon an ambitious and unlikely undertaking: to visit every country on the planet, arriving at a total of 196 countries over the course of 50 years. Tom Perkins's narration is clear, comfortably paced, and easy to follow, though perhaps not as colorful as one might imagine the author himself to be. His straightforward narration feels slightly at odds with the persona of Podell, who shows himself to be creative and crafty in achieving his challenging goal, though at times culturally judgmental and personally thorny. A bit more spice to the narration would have added a lot in portraying the type of person who would undertake an adventure such as this.
