“Falling Uphill” has been transliterated into something like “Adopt me and my bicycle” which is true enough but is also translated as “Building yourself up with a Bicycle” which probably has a more colloquial meaning in Korean. I’m also honored to be grouped with “The Life of Pi” and “Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance”. Here’s a review by one of several newspapers, the Korean Economic Daily, which I translated through Google, or you can read the original review in Korean.

You can also flip through the Korean edition here.

As a side note, I wonder if any of my books made it to North Korea?

The making of the book

Here is my new book on the floor of the print shop waiting to be bound. It’s the Spanish edition of the kid’s book, “Falling Uphill: The Secret of Life.” I needed to hover over the guys at the print shop because it just wasn’t getting done on schedule. Aah! And the books need to be on an airplane to Argentina the next day!

Celebrating the book

Students from Argentina holding their certificates of achievements and their copy of “Cayendo Hacia Arriba” the book that we created together. In my opinion, the celebration of the book is the most important step. It helps the students realize their purpose in life, take a step of action with their passion.
