Karl Pilkington is back on the road, and this time he's on a journey of self-discovery...
'I've been on the planet for forty years now and I'm still none the wiser as to what it's all about really. I've never worried about life's big questions. People at my age sit about pondering "why are we here?" The only time I ever asked myself that is when Suzanne booked us a surprise holiday to Lanzarote.'
Karl Pilkington is forty years old. He's not married, he doesn't have kids, and he's got a job where he's known as an 'idiot'. It's time for him to take stock and face up to life's big question - what does it all mean?
Karl is no stranger to travel, and now he's off on a series of madcap adventures around the globe to find out how other cultures approach life's big issues. Travelling from far-flung tribes to high-tech cities, Karl encounters everything from a traditional Indian wedding to an ancient Tibetan sky burial, from a drive-through funeral in LA to a man who married a robot. Have his experiences changed him? Find out in this hilarious new book where Karl shares his stories (and opinions) in his inimitable style.
