After I finished my first Camino, I came home confused. I really didn’t know why I’d put myself through so much pain. And so I wrote a book to try and make sense of it all, and really to complete the walk.
Here’s a link to it on Amazon – THE WAY, MY WAY.
It’s also available on iBooks, and elsewhere too I believe.
The book has become a best seller for the Camino crowd. It now has nearly 150 five-star reviews. Here are some excerpts:
Excellent Read. The Best Camino memoir by far!
“Everyone has a different Camino experience and every book is different, but this was by far the best!”
Bill Bennett’s first book? Wow!!
“This was the most delightful book that I have read in a very long time! It had just enough of humor, seriousness, & a lot of food for thought along the way.”
How the Camino changed him for the better – and he succeeded brilliantly!
“Bill Bennett made an effort to show the reader how the Camino changed him for the better, and he succeeded brilliantly! He’s funny and self-effacing but the reader can also see the pride and the self doubt that keeps him from being happy and whole. Very well written and a very fun read for me. Highly recommend.
A “MUST” Camino read!
“What a great read! You will finish this book feeling like you know Bill well and are his friend. You will experience his joy, pain (physical and emotional), frustrations, fatigue, personal growth and his obsession with the Camino de Santiago. You will also experience Bill’s PGS (personal guidance system), which had him making at times seemingly questionable to even crazy decisions, but which ultimately resulted in a successful, life-changing experience on the Camino. I have to admit, I started the book with a strong enthusiasm about hiking the Camino and finished it with a Camino obsession. I am one who can get easily distracted and bored with some books. Not this one! Bill does not pull any punches, presenting the good, the bad and the ugly. Interestingly, however, after reading the book, it’s the good that I mostly remember, Extremely readable and laced with humor and honesty, you will not want this book to end.”
This is one of the best books I have ever read on the Camino
“This was one of the best books I have ever read on The Camino. Introspective, marvelous dialogue, truthful and absolutely hilarious. I did not want to put it down. I would definitely read more books by Bill Bennett.”
