About the book:

An illustrated guide to the most adventurous journey there is: Life.

Human beings have long been addicted to maps: they tell us where we are, how we got where we are, and where we are going next. But The Atlas of Experience is no ordinary book of maps.

While adhering to the conventions of cartography, this atlas invites the traveler to follow routes through familiar-looking topography into hitherto uncharted realms of imagination, ideas, feelings and experience.

Cradled by the Ocean of Possibilities, the Sea of Plenty and Still Waters, this strangely familiar place has its capital Boom, its airports Escape and Freedom. It encompasses beautiful regions like the Peninsular of Pleasure as well as desolate wastes such as the Swamps of Boredom and the Bay of Melancholy. Then again there are the well-known Mountains of Work and the Safe Harbour of Home. And what about the Volcanoes of Passion and the border towns of Challenge and Doubt? That's The Atlas of Experience the very special travel book that takes you on the long journey to where you are.
