Marriner, Mike, McAllister, Brian, Gebhard, Nathan


A few years ago, three guys were facing the end of college and realized they had no idea what they wanted to do with their lives. Their solution: take a roadtrip and interview people from all walks of life to learn how they got where they are. Their mode of transportation: an unsound, thirty-one-foot green motor home. Three months and 17,000 miles later, they had met the CEO of National Geographic, the scientist who decoded the human genome, and the conductor of the Boston Philharmonic. They'd talked to bookstore owners, filmmakers, artists, and more than seventy others who had found their callings-their "open roads." Coming home from that trip, Mike, Brian, and Nathan were inspired to help others define their own paths based on passion, individuality, and nonconformity. They titled their project Roadtrip Nation, made a documentary, created a television show, wrote a book, and now send teams of students out on the road each summer. The students plan their own routes, book their own interviews, and hit the road to explore possibilities they never knew existed. Finding the Open Road shares how you too can create a roadtrip experience to discover whether you are traveling down the right course in life. Through a step-by-step guide to planning your trip, a roadtrip journal that offers the personal perspective, and more than fifty interviews that describe how others found their true roads, this inspirational handbook offers a nation's worth of wisdom for anyone trying to find their own authentic path. Including interviews with * Rob Bollinger, artistic director of Cirque du Soleil * Mark Burnett, creator of Survivor * Jane Smiley, Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist * Mickey Drexler, CEO of J.Crew * Ann Powers, rock journalist * and many more.Marriner, Mike is the author of 'Finding The Open Road A Guide to Self-Construction Rather Than Mass Production', published 2005 under ISBN 9781580087216 and ISBN 1580087213.
