Author Pico Iyer is an avid traveler. Nevertheless, with serene composure, he argues that the most beneficial journey you can take is one inside yourself. Iyer eloquently explains his personal experience of escaping the rat race to find his inner stillness. While his examples are mainly anecdotal, he makes a strong case for disconnecting from technology in order to reconnect with the world. At a time when burnout is becoming an epidemic, Iyer’s ideas on going nowhere are especially relevant.
