Just as the 4-hour Workweek by Timothy Ferris changed my life by giving me both the tools and the inspiration to quit my job, travel the world and live my life on my own terms, I was hoping "12 Weeks in Thailand" would do the same, and it has. I told myself that even if I only changed one life, if I only encouraged a single person, to go after what they want instead of letting their friends and their fears hold them back, it would be worth it. Here is that very first review:
"I just finished reading your book. It was really informative and inspiring. I admire you for what you've accomplished, and I appreciate you sharing your story. I have to admit, I've been wanting to go to Thailand to train for two years now. I finally decided to go last October, and I'm leaving 31/01/13 - to stay for six months. I've been working 70 hours weeks to be able to do it, and my shape isn't that great.
I was getting really nervous, getting cold feet, having my friends doubt my judgement, wanting to hold me back. It made me question my decision. I was ready to stay home, in the same boring, exhausting and unhappy life, until I read your book.
It gave me hope that maybe I could fulfill my dreams, or at least find out who I really am, if I give myself a chance to do so. I'm a really shy and introverted 22 year old man, so I guess I don't really know much about what my life will bring. All I know is that you made me certain about taking the first step, and for that, I can't thank you enough. I just really wanted you to know that it means a lot that you shared your experience."

I know for me personally, I was scared to take a long trip out to Thailand, even though I knew it was relatively safe, I knew that it would make me happy, and I knew that I had so much more to gain than to lose. But I was still scared. Wayne from the U.S. recently quit his job to come train at Team Quest in Chiang Mai for a year. He thanked me for inspiring him to come, he said that if I hadn't done it first and if he hadn't followed my blog and read my book, he never would have had the courage to do it.
"I read your book -- really interesting and very insightful information in there. Truly appreciate you sharing some of the stuff and the pointers on what to bring, where to train, eat, language, etc!
Thanks again for your blog and the book, very interesting and helpful!"
"I am an impulse book buyer because I believe that that even if there is a single piece of wisdom or valuable insider information it is worth paying for. I'm planning to spend a month in Thailand very soon, with a focus on getting in shape under a Muay Thai camp.
As an Canadian Born Chinese I support Asian Americans (and Canadian, British, Australian Asians ect ect) and their arts and publishings.
I enjoyed the book and reading about your experiences."
