The Hardest Path

‘On the Japanese island of Shikoku, amidst mountains, coasts, and bamboo forests, lies one of the world’s most sacred trails—the eighty-eight-temple pilgrimage. Inspired by Paulo Coelho (author of the Alchemist) and driven by dissatisfaction with the day-to-day grind, Matt Jardine embarks on a journey in search of answers to life’s great questions, mysteries that confound us all. Heartfelt, accessible, humorous, and profound, what he discovers is that the hardest path is rarely the one we walk outside, but the one we walk within.’

Review of The Hardest Path: “The trick with such a book as this is, how do you relate some of the most ineffable experiences of life so that others might grasp its tail? Or better yet how does an author inspire a reader to start the first step of their journey on the path. Or better yet, add color to an already existing journey. Matt Jardine weaves adroitly from one level of experience to the next like a bird, on the ground one moment, in a tree the next and then in the sky, all the time never losing the reader as the flight of the journey is grounded and yet lofty at the same time. I enjoy, The Hardest Path; A Journey Outside to Answer the Questions Within, upon the first read, Now The book sits within arm’s reach in my office. I find myself opening this book and appreciating it for just a moment resulting in a nod, and an “Ah ha.” Then gently placing it back for the next moment. You will read this book, and enjoy it, and then you will do the same things I have done, reach for it again and again.” K.Wilder
