    E–pub Travels AUTHOR Michael Crichton Read Travels AUTHOR Michael Crichton I found it appalling that Michael Crichton so calmly depicts waiting outside a brothel in Asia while his host has sex with children I suppose we're supposed to think he's a good guy for not indulging himself but the fact that he is having a conversation with someone while they wait and never objecting or contacting authorities is shocking to me As Edmund Burke said all that's necessary for evil to prevail is for good men to do not

There are lots of good reasons not to like or to outright dislike Michael Crichton s TravelsHe shares very directly his understanding about how women differ from men during the 1980s compared to his experiences in the 60s and 70s He studies things like psychic powers and auras and spoon bending He gets married again and again He might be at his most sympathetic while talking to a cactus The chapter on Sean Connery felt too much like name dropping though I liked Connery s advice always tell the truth That makes it their problemAt times I felt like Crichton learned the same lessons over and over and over without realizing that he was dealing with the same problem throughout his lifeThe account ends with an essay criticizing the scientific community for its skepticism of psychic phenomena rather than the introspective conclusion I d been expecting throughout the bookBasically it would be easy to dismiss the whole of this book using any one or two parts of itThe only exception might be his descriptions of med school which are raw and vividly described I was impressed and sometimes shocked by these moments I was also struck by how many doctors he met who felt powerless to help peopleBut at all times in this memoir I found myself thinking something like here s a Harvard trained physician speaking candidly about auras and psychic powers and what he thinks about just about everything And I also recalled the scene at the end of Pulp Fiction when Jules explains that a dog is dirty but it has personality So it s not filthy This book has personality so I m not inclined to dismiss itAnd let s not forget this advice from David Brooks which goes something like our character is defined by our attempts to wrestle with our personal flaws Brooks does not mention our victory lap after defeating or solving our flaws Our personal flaws from what I can tell are our personal flaws and we should do our best to recognize and manage them perenniallyCrichton could have self censored and didn t It takes guts to do that and sometimes that goes a long way
