Product Description


In 2001, at the age of 69, Ted Simon decided to retrace his original journey. It took him two and a half years, during which he revisited all the countries he had traveled through his first time ‘round. He found much had changed, and he reflects upon the increased poverty, political upheavals, environmental issues and changes in himself. This book is a hugely inspiring read with a positive message at its heart…that no matter what age you are, you can still set off on an adventure and still be surprised and excited by what life throws at you along the way. Softbound, 6"×9" 448 pp., b/w illus.

How the World has Changed.Review by John
Although it isn't necessary to have read Jupiter's Travels before reading this, it will help the reader to understand Mr. Simon's view of what we've lost (hopefully only in the short run) and what we may do to improve the quality of life for everyone.

Well written, but leaving room for another photo book, although his time constraint meant less time to get to know people and photograph them, so this may be all we get from the second time around.

This work was published in 2008 and the photo book for the first trip ridden in the mid 1970's wasn't published until 2013, so I still have hope.

Well worth reading, especially if you've read either of the books about the first time around.
