It's here! Once again I've forgotten to whet everyone's appetite by constantly mentioning my book until the release day, but I've always been more into getting books out than marketing them. Starting today, you can buy my latest book, Forever Nomad.
The idea behind the book is that when I wrote Life Nomadic, my first travel book, I hadn't quite figured out how to balance life and work. I was excited about the possibilities of travel and how accessible it is, but it took me many years to figure out how to integrate it with real life.
A lot of that work was to figure out a ton tips and tricks to make every aspect of the travel experience both effortless and affordable.
So this book is full of every single travel trick and hack I know, as well as ideas on how to integrate travel into a normal life, including lots of details on how I buy properties with my friends.
If you travel at all, or want to travel at all, you are definitely going to get a lot of value out of this book. It's over 200 pages in print, which is longer than my normal books. I generally like to have short and easily-digestible books that you can read in one sitting, but there was too much to put into this one.
I suspect that this will be my last book for a while or ever, or at least my last non-fiction book, but you never know!

Really loved your book! Plan to leave a review too. But was curious, you didn't seem to touch on the issue of health insurance and long term travel and I kept hoping you would. How do you manage this issue? Purchase travel insurance for each trip? If so, what do you do about insurance when you're home and not traveling? Just pay for it throughout the year? If there is somewhere else you do discuss this on your blog, please post a link. Overall I was very inspired by the book - thought I knew all the travel hacks there were but I learned a lot. Thanks!
Yeah, same here. Emailed the receipt like 3 days ago. Wondering when can I get a chance to read the other book. Thanks
Hey! Sent you the Amazon receipt a couple of days ago. Just wanted to check to make sure that you got it. :)
I could look at this picture all day. The lighting, the pensive stance, THAT WINDOW! I just signed up to follow your blog and look forward to more.

Hey Tynan - Is there where you expand more on your multiple home-bases strategy from your empire post?
Bought it yesterday and read it in one sitting. I intend to reread it again (several times). Great book, Tynan!
I think the people who pre-ordered for Haiti have had enough time to read the book, so now it's time to make it available to everyone.
You can buy the book here at Amazon!
In case you're new to the site, I haven't had a regular condo or house in 4 years or so, and have been traveling around the world and around the US. Life Nomadic a really practical guide about efficient traveling -- experiencing a LOT while spending relatively LITTLE. It has everything from travel stories I didn't publish on the blog to packing lists. If you broke it down, about 1/3 is life outlook sort of stuff, 1/3 is stories (maybe a bit less), and 1/3 is take-action-now howto advice. It will change how you travel, one way or another.
One of the themes I realized I have on this blog is my constant love for John Grisham books. I promise the next book I'll read won't be by him, but they're so good!
Alright, onto the review. I've read a bunch of John Grisham books and this one is definitely one of my favorites. It combines his classic lawyer stuff with a lot of suspense and mystery. This book is definitely different opposed to other ones as it doesn't really seem to focus on the law or at least trials. While the law is the main subject (murder of two Supreme Court judges), most of the storyline revolved around trying to escape from the people after the protagonist.
Also one of the books' main focus was the attractiveness of the leading character. No, but really. I was actually going to see how accurate Grisham is because there's a movie, but I feel way too lazy to find the movie online. Anyways, I give the book a 4.5 - 5 out of 5. Sometimes the escape stuff got a little repetitive, but it always kept on my feet. It took forever to figure what the Pelican Brief is, but after reading it I'm glad it did. Overall, it's an awesome novel. And, I really need to stop reading so much John Grisham.
