LIVERPOOL, MERSEYSIDE, ENGLAND, December 17, 2018 / -- "Man of the World", book one of The Odyssey Expedition, by British author and travel adventurer Graham Hughes was recently named to Kirkus Reviews’ Best of 2018 as among the top books of the year. The book also received a starred review from Kirkus, which called the book “a riveting journey recounted by an irrepressible, highly likable narrator.”

Covering the first 139 countries & territories of The Odyssey Expedition, “Man of the World” is much more than a travelogue; it’s an epic tale of grit and humor, dizzying highs and crushing lows, a snapshot of the world seen through the eyes of a man who “eats impossible for breakfast”.

"With over 100,000 words and 170 illustrations, the book is almost as epic as the record breaking journey itself... and being named to Kirkus' top books of 2018 is the cherry on top of the cake." said Graham.


ATBOSH Media Ltd. is more than just the book's publisher. As an Agency Press they also serve as Graham's literary agent for this book, books 2 & 3, as well as the television and film rights.

Graham Hughes is an author, presenter and filmmaker from Liverpool, England. He’s been called “The Thinking Woman’s Indiana Jones”, “The World’s Most Adventurous Man” and “Bill Bryson for the Millennial Generation”.

He is the only person to have visited every country in the world without flying. While on his journey he presented the travel series “Graham’s World”, which was commissioned by National Geographic, produced by Lonely Planet, distributed by BBC Worldwide and broadcast in over 50 countries around the world.

After his record breaking expedition, he won a tropical island on a game-show, subsequently spending the next few years living off-grid. Graham has now returned to the UK to help inspire the next generation to get out there and see the world for themselves.
