US 50 Coast to Coast By Wulf Berg
eBook (PDF): $8.99
For two years we planed and prepared for a trip on US Route 50 from Ocean City, Maryland, to San Francisco, California. We believe that Route 50 crosses some of the most beautiful parts of America.... More > On May the First we watched the sun rise above the Atlantic Ocean and departed on our journey to the Pacific Ocean where we observed the sunset twenty-one days later. Our trip was memorable and inspirational. As we crossed the country we met and talked with people from different backgrounds and affiliations. Everybody was proud of his or her heritage and place of residency. America the Beautiful is the greatest country on Earth. We still can see the colorful canyons in Utah. As we crossed the Green River, our thoughts went with John Powell as he explored this territory in 1869. I hope my book will encourage other to take a journey across America and see this beautiful country. Only those who have experienced the tranquility of nature will fight to preserve it Our public land is not for sale!< Less

At his most immodest, Brian would like to believe Bill Bryson would be able to recognize his influence on this book. It's a humorous, informative and thoughtful exploration of modern Korean culture... More > and expat life. The book is full of personal anecdotes, secondhand stories and interesting facts, which are all interlaced with his personal narrative. Brian discusses serious topics like Korea's deeply embedded racism, its 1950's style sexism, its demanding but unproductive work culture and its highly lauded but deeply flawed education system. However, he also talks about lighter subjects like K-pop, the expat and Korean dating scenes, its debaucherous drinking culture, and why he thinks Seoul should be considered the party capital of Asia. By time readers are done, they'll have an understanding of how a lot of expats view Korea, what some of its most significant and peculiar cultural differences are and some of the problems it's currently facing. This is a must read for anyone thinking of moving there.< Less
