An Unexpected Review

I’ve long been a fan of Niall Doherty. Niall writes the blog Disrupting the Rabblement. He defines rabble as:

  • Watching TV regularly
  • Eating lots of processed food
  • Not reading actual books
  • Working an unfulfilling job
  • Buying lots of useless crap
  • Not exercising regularly
  • Obsessing about celebrities
  • Lack of focus
  • Not offending anybody

And he makes a damn good case for a different way of life, one he’s out living himself. I consider him one of the leading lifestyle design bloggers.

You can imagine my titillation, then, when he decided to review my book Walk Like a God.

(Actually, the titillation first began when I saw that he’d purchased it—I had no idea that he’d be reviewing it, and I never asked him to.)

Niall managed to pull out some of my favorite lines from the book. He compared it to his own religious upbringing and his current beliefs. Seeing how someone applies the ideas of adventure-as-spiritual-practice to their own life is eye opening. As an author it’s rare to see how people actually take my words.

You can see Niall’s review here, along with the rest of his blog and his great free how-to Manifesto. His goal: to piss off zombies. It’s really worth a look.

  1. Thanks for the intro to Niall’s blog. I like that he is not traveling by plane (that’s why I like your idea, too), much better for the environment and it has that old fashioned romantic charm to it:)

  2. Hey Drew, thanks for the linkage. Glad you enjoyed my review. Honestly, I hadn’t dived much into your writing before that, only bits and pieces. I’m definitely a big fan now. Looking forward to following your journey and reading much more. Keep up the great work.
