“A Bus Will Take You There is likely to give you a more inclusive view of the one who looks back when we each stand alone in front of the mirror.”


A Bus Will Take You There is one of my favourite books of all time, but I’ve never really been able to share it with you because it was only published for a select few people.

I have a signed copy from a print and demand run, so imagine how thrilled I was to see it’s now available on Amazon!

Johnny Bock has owned the same VW Bus for almost his entire adult life, and he and it have been through some adventures. Here he puts some of these stories together in what is a really well written tale. Not only is Bock a natural raconteur but he’s quite the philosopher. Whenever anyone asks me what the book is about I say it’s the working man’s ‘Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance’ and I suspect anyone who’s read both will agree.

However, there is no motorcycle, just Johnny and his bus and everything they go through seen through the eye of a VW bus. This is a book about life, about loss, about love and about the most epic road trips you could ever imagine. Whether you love VWs or not, whether you have the travel bug or not, I guarantee reading this will make you want to head out on the most wonderful adventure!

Every single human being alive should read this book, it’s simply wonderful!
