Falling Uphill: Second Edition. One man's quest for happiness around the world on a bicycle. In one week, Scott Stoll lost his job, his best friend, his girlfriend and his confidence. Disillusioned with society, full of angst, a lost and wandering soul with nothing left to lose, Stoll asked himself a question: "If I only have one life, one chance, if I could do anything, what would I do?" His answer resulted in a 4 year and 25,742 mile odyssey around the world by bicycle, seeking answers to the great mysteries of life, vowing to find happiness or die trying. The quest wasn't easy. He was imprisoned, held hostage, mugged, run over, suspected of terrorism, accused of espionage, trampled, diseased, heartbroken-he nearly died a dozen times. But more importantly, in the most unlikely places, Scott also discovered the wonders of the world, kindness among strangers, the meaning of life, peace, love and-Yes!-happiness. Re-live and re-imagine an archetypal journey around the world on a bicycle as a man stumbles through moments of pure survival and moments of pure enlightenment.
