Without Ricky and Steve, Karl is able to choose where he goes and what he does and unsurprisingly we get much more happier Karl. :)
The book has five chapters: Marriage, Kids, Vocation & Money, Happiness and Death. In each chapter Karl visits various countries and meets different people. He also saves Tony the turtle in Japan and a goat in Mexico.
I learned about Ghanaian coffins, sea gypsies in Wakitobi, the Primopuel doll, Hanging coffins at Sagada, the Manila North Cemetery and what is Aunt Nora's favourite colour.
Daniel Suelo and Yoshiro Nakamatsu aka Dr NakaMats were my favourites from all the people Karl meet.
