“How did you get this weird job?”

More than any other question, this is the one author Steven Shepard is asked the most. In a typical year he visits about 50 countries, flies 150,000 air miles and delivers talks in at least three languages. He rents more cars than he can remember, eats things that most people would not recognize as food, and wakes up every day, wondering how he got so lucky. And the job? It’s a lesson in professional schizophrenia. He writes books, produces audio and video programs, gives talks to a wide range of audiences, and takes pictures of the remarkable things he sees in his travels. What’s weird about that?!?

After answering the question dozens of times, Steve decided to capture his answers in a book, Musings: Thoughts on My Career as a Traveler.
