Summary "Rob Binkley is a young Silicon Valley entrepreneur who had it all at twenty-seven: a thriving business, beautiful girlfriend, and overall happy life. But something was missing, and despite his success, Rob fantasized about shedding the shackles of his American Dream to live wild and free like his hero Hunter S. Thompson. As Rob's world begins to fall apart, a visit from his Zen madman of a best friend, Brian, inspires him to hatch an escape plan and follow his bliss for authentic life experiences. Will he find the meaning of life while backpacking through twenty-three countries, or will he and Brian go mad wallowing in the extreme debauchery the world has to offer? A tribute to gonzo beat literature, Let's Go Mad is the amazing true story of their year abroad backpacking across the globe on a sideways search in all the wrong places. Brian's lust for life propels Rob into taking steps in all the wrong directions with all the wrong people at all the wrong times. After Brian inspires him to embrace his inner madman, pushing the limits of sanity (and their friendship) into one merry blur--they come to realize there's more to life than mere mad experience. They must have a 'personal renaissance' or die trying"--Page 4 of cover.
