Eye Books author, Alastair Humphreys‘ inspirational book Ten Lessons from the Road is set to come out in Greek from the publishers Dioptra. Dioptra is one of Greece’s leading publishers of inspirational books and we have every reason to believe that Alastair’s book, called Live the Dream in its Greek edition will be a tour de force. Congratulations to Alastair from everyone at Eye Books & Can of Worms.

10 Lessons from the Road
We tend to strive for what we know we can achieve. What’s the point of that? Alastair learnt a thing or two as he cycled around the world. He learnt that big achievements come from big dreams, that they often start with big talk, and they guarantee some really big scares along the way. He also learnt that you only learn how far you can go by going too far.
Serial adventurer, he’s currently walking around the M25 in the worst winter conditions in 50 years, and Eye Books’ author Alastair Humphreys will be talking at the Adventure Show at the end of this month, Sunday 31 January 2010.
Described as “The first great adventure of the 21st Century” by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Alastair will be talking about his epic circumnavigation of the world by bike recounted in his two books: Moods of Future Joys and Thunder & Sunshine. (Alastair will also be talking at the National Geographic this month, details to come). You can check out Al’s blog, read about his cycling adventures by reading Moods of Future Joys and Thunder & Sunshine, or read about the wisdom he gained on his journey by reading Ten Lessons From the Road.

Around the world by bike. By Alistair Humphreys, Adventurer
Aged 24 Alastair Humphreys left England to cycle round the world. His journey along the length of the Earth’s three great land masses [Africa, the Americas, and Eurasia] took more than 4 years to complete. He has written three books about his adventure.
Interest in Eye Book’s hilarious Crap Cycle Lanes is creating a chain reaction of interest in the Twittersphere and elsewhere. Featured in last month’s Architect’s Journal as the Book of the Month, Crap Cycle Lanes has now found its way on to the Guardian’s blog: http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/series/bike-blog. What started as a ‘farcility’ of the month on the Warrington Cycle Campaign’s website is now available as a great gift for cyclists, urban planners and anyone with a sense of humour.
The Shell Chester Literature Festival is in its 21st year, and they have invited one of our authors, the fantastic Alastair Humphreys, to give a talk. As well as being the author of three books, Al is a talented speaker, with the President of the Royal Geographical Society saying, “with the possible exception of Sir David Attenborough, that was the best lecture, and the longest applause that I have heard in the past 15 years.”
