Right To The Edge: Sydney To Tokyo By Any Means Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 5, 2010 by getbent57

A few days ago I finished Charley Boorman’s newest book Right to the Edge: Sydney to Tokyo by Any Means or By Any Means 2.  I have had this book since November and it is now July.  Could have read it a lot faster but I procrastinate from time to time.  Just like his other four TV/book adventures this one is awesome too.  It doesn’t get boring at all.  Just like the other book it is a nice read and very interesting.  I like reading these adventure/travel books but have no desire to travel.  That is a bit strange.

I really liked this book.  It is just as good as his other adventures.  I recommend this book to every one.  I hope this he does another one because I like reading about it and seeing the TV show that goes along with it.

Bought some new books from for a really good deal.  They shipped them on Nov 17 and got them on the 20th.  I was really happy how quickly they arrived.  Was wait for Charley Boorman’s new book to come out, By Any Means 2.  Was looking to see when it came out and they had it on sale for $16.38.   So I could not pass that up.  To get free shipping you have to send over $39.  So I all so order Enemies & Allies: A Novel (Hardcover) which was all so on sale.  That didn’t add up to $39 so I ended up ordering a book my mother want as well.

ByAnyMeansBook If you have ever read my blog you might know that I am a fan of Charley Boorman’s adventures.  And By Any Means is not different.  I really enjoyed this book just like his others ones.  You get so much more from it then watching the show.  Speaking about the show I so wish they would releases the region 1 DVD.  They have with the other adventures.  But any who, the book is awesome.  I recommend this book and his other books to any one.

By Any Means 2 book will be out in fall 2009.  The show will be out around the same time airing on BBC 2 then on BBC worldwide in 2010.  I can’t wait to get this book as well.

By Any Means is a great read just like all Charley Boorman’s adventures.

photos-thumb.jpgWell By Any Means 2 now has it’s own website now.  Not much on it.  A few pictures and what the tip is all about.  Did some searching around and got some more info.  I like I posted before was Charley Boorman’s Twitter page.  He all so has a TwitPic page as well.   This time around Claudio von Planta is back.  He has a Twitter and and a TwitPic pages as well.  No Idea when the show will go to air since it is still being filmed.  But my best guess will be some time in the fall.

photos I came across this yesterday while looking to see what Charley Boorman was up to. It looks like he is on a new adventure call By Any Means. According to he will travel from Ireland to Sydney, Australia “by any means”. Using each countries native form of transport. They are trying not to use big airlines. This is going to be on TV in the UK. It sounds like a good watch just like the other adventures he was on. Long Way Around, Race To Dakar and Long Way Down. There is a nice interview on youtube talking about his trip.
