Finding 42, at its core, is an amazing adventure series. Book 1, Cut the Rope, begins with the author leaving the familiar, New York City, and flying into the unfamiliar, Moscow, Russia.

Finding 42 is a letting go of the known and often forced reality. It is about a man setting out to prove that a better reality was there for the creating. Within the journey, spiritual growth flourishes and an ancient knowledge is renewed in the strength, kindness, and beauty of the human spirit.

Book 1 is filled with stories and soulful connections with fellow travelers and locals alike. There is the story of Fire Horse in Mongolia, Tom Waits and Starbucks in Moscow, life aboard the Trans-Siberian Railroad, the Great Wall, and even a magical event in Luoyang, China. Fasten your seat belts! I remind you that this is all true.
