    "Thoughtful Insights" I thoroughly enjoyed this short book. It is structured as a series of anecdotes from Lisa's travels, interspersed with artistic sketches from each adventure. Lisa details various incidents, both mundane and off-the-beaten-path, in a casual tone, with evident good humor and honesty. She ends most stories with a new insight or deep thought. Lisa is proof of the richness that comes from paying thoughtful attention to what's around you, especially when talking to strangers. My only complaint was that I wanted more: longer stories and more artwork. (Disclaimer: I've been friends with Lisa since grad school.)

    "A prodigious inspiration!" This book of stories are vividly shared as if I was right besides this "young girl" on her travels. I admire her bold, candid, and insightful perspectives as she speaks and shares with others during her travels. All of life is a journey which paths we take, what we look back on, and what we look forward to is up to us. We determine our destination, what kind of road we will take to get there, and how happy we are when we get there. It brings great comfort to Lisa Wong that God has directed her path thus far. I am waiting to read her sequel...
