A data analyst is on board a passenger jet. The captains voice announced over the radio We have lost an engine, but theres no need to worry, we can fly on three engines, it will just take us an hour longer to reach our destination.

A while later, the radio crackles again: This is your captain speaking, we have lost another engine but were in no danger. Our journey will take an extra two hours though.

Not long after, the captain is on the radio again: Were down to one engine, we can make it safely, but were going to be landing three hours late.

I hope we dont lose the last engine, says the analyst, Well be up here forever.

Mundane Journeys through an Amazing World begins with Interstate 80. Not the most engaging topic, I know, but when you think about it, I-80 runs all the way across the North American continent linking San Francisco and New York. It's not just a ribbon of asphalt, it's a portal to far away, almost magical places.

My visits to major cities like Tokyo, London and Washington DC have been business affairs. I haven't rode a lot of roller coasters or ridden in open air buses, but I have visited with senators, bought yams from the back of a truck and barely escaped complete embarrassment when I was introduced to Matt Wiener in Vegas.

As I wrote the book I realized that over the years exotic, distant places have become more like the mundane places I've called home. But, as it turns out, there really aren't any mundane places, only mundane ways of looking at things.
