Travels by Michael Crichton (A Book Review)

"If you’re a writer, the assimilation of important experiences almost obliges you to write about them. Writing is how you make the experience your own, how you explore what it means to you, how you come to possess it, and ultimately release it.” – Michael Crichton

Michael Crichton, the author of the famous 1993 film “Jurassic Park”, wrote an autobiography of his journey and adventures entitled “Travels”.  Ever since high school, he was a habitual traveler. He had already traveled in different continents when he started medical school in Harvard. His adventures were extreme - he experienced diving with sharks, tracking wild animals in Africa, and trekking across remote places, such as Pakistan.
