Amazon Reviews of Toothbrush People

By
This is an incredible book that highlights the importance of international travel. It also puts a face with some countries that most people have never been to. I have also been told by the author that all profits go toward Semester at Sea scholarships, so support this amazing book and help give other students the opportunity to really see the world.

Loved the book and the different stories, great read from cover to cover. If you are interested in what makes traveling memorable (the people), then purchase this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring, August 17, 2012
Toothbrush People is an inspirational read that makes the world seem like a smaller place. By putting a face and a story to far away lands, it personalizes it in a way that draws you in. I recommend this to anyone going on an international voyage or a mission trip. It will help you remember to keep your eyes open and be prepared to be moved when you least expect it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Global Citizens: Personal Stories, July 27, 2012

Nancy B. Wilkinson (Stillwater, OK United States) – See all my reviews
I remember hearing Don Gogniat challenge students on a Semester at Sea voyage to distill their hundreds of experiences from around the world to one memorable person, one face, and to think of that person when they brushed their teeth in the future. This was to be their “toothbrush person.” The room became quiet as private thoughts brought forward moving memories of individuals, each with a story. It is a privilege to read some of these stories in Gogniat’s book. The entries allow the reader to travel with young global explorers as they experience other cultures on the most personal level. The book was a joy to read and it reminded me of my own “toothbrush person” – a teacher from Cambodia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read, June 12, 2012
this a very eye-opening look into international travel as experienced through the eyes of college students. it’s not all fun and games – it’s hard work becoming open to new experiences, new cultures, changing the way you think. all proceeds go to student scholarships for the semester at sea program. how can you go wrong?
