I sent an email to Barry Eisler:
He replied back:
OK, it was a best seller for months so I reserved it at the Library. I can best describe it as a chick flic book, or something like that. But I did enjoy the book as I prefer light reading. It appears some of the cities and geographical areas were not correct. I did not know as I have never been in that area. It is either crap or a good read based on your opinion. I liked it as I like strong women, even when they have done wrong by ******* men.
Okay then, lol. Thanks. I don't like it when crap isn't correct, but I guess I'll check it out anyway.
The Art of Shen Ku: The First Intergalactic Artform of the Entire Universe
That's awesome. My dad met him at a book signing years ago and said he seemed like a great guy. We both have read most of the books he's written. I've never been into audiobooks but might have to give Barry's a listen sometime.
He's a great narrator.

I knew Rich Roll's background and I've listened to several of his podcasts, but I didn't know all the details. Damn, what a life story.
I assume that you are aware of David Goggins too?
Toughest man alive! I believe I've watched every David Goggins clip on the internet, in addition to reading his book (and the book by Jesse Itzler about the time Goggins lived with him for 30 days). His story about his first 100 mile race is the craziest running story I've ever heard.
The film closely follows the book. The book spends a lot more time on Johnny Fontane for some reason and it has a weird sub plot with Sonny's mistress.
