TV adventurer Josh Gates tells his story about hosting the monster-hunting series Destination: Truth. He talks about how he got the job, talks about his crew, and about the behind the scenes efforts to fill their hour-long show. His adventurous attitude is catching and this makes good reading. Entertaining travelogue with that little extra -- a monster.

Wow! I couldn't put this down. It full of fascinating behind the scenes stories from Destination Truth and laugh out loud moments. Even if you've never seen the show, this memoir is worth a read.

If you've ever seen the popular show, Destination Truth, on Syfy, you know what this show is all about. A man (Josh Gates) and his team travel throughout the world in search of the crytozoological and paranormal. And if you've watched the show, you know it's not just about finding the unexplained, it's about the meeting of cultures and beliefs, finding reality within the myth, and Josh Gates traveling the world as he falls, fumbles, and cusses at the always-failing broken-down transportation.

Written by Josh Gates, this book isn't filled with his early life. You will get a glimpse of what made him who he is but this story starts with the inception and creation of the show, Destination truth. You will get a behind the camera's look at his adventures with the show (and trust me, there's a lot you don't see – they film for days or weeks in foreign countries, just to come back and condense it into a 30-60 minute showing) and boy does this man have adventures to tell! Not only is this an excellent travelogue but it is hilarious. Gates is constantly adding in his sarcasm and humor that I find so endearing in the show. He also goes more into depth with his thoughts on the creatures he has been sent off in search of.

If you're looking for the exciting tell-all of this man's life before the show, you're not going to find it. But if you have enjoyed the fun and excitement that this show has offered for 4 seasons, there is no doubt that you will also enjoy this book.

I enjoyed the show Destination Truth from the moment it first aired. I loved Josh's screen presence, his sense of adventure, and his wit. The great thing about this book is it feels and reads like you're watching an episode of the show. His style of writing carries his voice with it in such a way that it makes his memoir a fun read. If you're not an adventurous person one thing's for sure...this book will stir the passion of adventure in you.
