If you don’t have patient, you can’t read it. How much attention you pay, how much wisdom and experience you gain. You will never forget this meaningful journey with Chris.
Satellite Life chronicles the reality of a young man’s pan-Asian journey to rediscover purpose. Struggling to encounter the world beyond programmed lifestyles and ladderless careers, he finds solace in the saunas of South Korea, destitution in Japan, hope in the face of a Vietnamese dissident, and solidity in Taiwan. Chris Tobias thoughtfully examines the events that sent him packing and the compounding challenges greeting his exodus from the United States. Readers are bootstrapped along for the penetrating journey through countries and soul fabric alike, meeting characters of all backgrounds, costly mishaps, unlikely romance, and the brilliant revolution of a young person’s life. A compelling effort, it dares anyone reading to unvicariously reenter their life and the surrounding world, leading the way by example.
