    1. This is a great book for anyone who is unsure with their life's current path. It methodically leads the reader through many methods of self analysis. Francis offers a plethora of opinions and advice but always reminds the reader to "hike your own hike." Giving the tone of "this is what I would do, but it’s really up to you." Which is more than true. For those of us that feel we have a solid handle on our life, perspectives and dreams it is easy to glaze over while reading "Hike You Own Hike." [...]

    2. Since my boyfriend is a few weeks away from finishing an Appalachian Trail thru-hike, I've been interested in books about the AT and readjustment to the "real world" after a thru-hike. In searching for books that meet the criteria, I came across this title. My library doesn't own it, but thanks to the wonders of interlibrary loan, I was able to borrow a copy from a library in Wyoming.Sometimes you read an author's work and just think, "Ahh, someone else gets it!" That's how I felt with this book [...]

    3. I wrote this book, so of course it's great! :)To learn more about this book, visit:Francis Tapon's Website

    4. Hike Your Own Hike is a bit like The Seven Habits of Highly Successful People. It doles out common sense that we should know but need pounded into our heads every once in awhile. Author Francis Tapon isn’t a guru or a life coach, but he is an average person who did a seemingly inhuman thing—hiking the 2,168-mile Appalachian Trail—and picked up a few principles that can be applied to everyday life along the way.The book is split into seven chapters, each one dedicated to the seven life prin [...]

    5. Not what I expected. I was looking for adventure and found self help. A lot of good ideas for living life to its fullest.

    6. 'HIKE your own HIKE' by Francis Tapon is a self development and self help book with a difference. It shows you why walking is so powerful for your mind, body and soul, as well as covering life lessons that will change your life with increased self empowerment, emotional health and emotional wealth.This is not a travel guide about the Appalachian Trail (AT) but a fascinating book on life lessons that you can use throughout your life. Tapon shares his wisdom with you. It may kick-start you into wa [...]

    7. This is not a book about moderation. This is not about middle-of-the-road mediocrity. It is about making hard choices, being disciplined, and living a life fueled with passion. The kind of book that really gets us revved-up!So much more than a trail book. This is a book about living well. Full review here:outsideways/article/hike-y

    8. I read this on my kindle app on my iPad. Really more of a self-help book about how to use what he learned thru-hiking the AT and applying it to life than an actual trail memoir. It did have a really good section on gear.

    9. This is an inspirational book! The life lessons learned by the author Francis Tapon can be applied to all walks of life (no pun intended). The wrapping of these life lessons in a hike across America is funny, intriguing and absorbing.

    10. A little too Covey-ish for my taste, but good food for thought despite MANY annoying editing/proofreading errors.

    11. Excellent, not only did I want to get out and hike the hike but it was a great inspiration on how to live your own life with passion.

    12. Still reading this one. So far, very good. Associates the trials and tribulations of hiking the Appalachian Trail to our everyday obstacles and goals in life.
