In 2010, I left my home in New York on a motorcycle, heading towards California in search of answers. During the 34 days that followed, I rode solo through the back roads of the country.

I spent hundreds of hours in contemplation, met with dozens of people who shared the road with me, and interviewed leading experts in research labs, spiritual centers, and temples. 6,000 miles later I returned home with answers.
Taking the collective knowledge of leading experts and researchers (including Deepak Chopra, Phil Zimbardo, and Sonja Lyubomirsky), the lifetimes of experience of the people I met, and the silent wisdom of the road, I have compiled this guide to finding inner peace. Ride of your Life brings this experience to you, along with the simple, eternal truths that emerged as a practical guide for a happier life. Ride on, and ride safe!
