Naked DeterminationWorld is your oyster. It is an idiom we all have heard for all our lives but yet we can’t make world our oyster. There are commitments, there is a job or a college or a school, there will always something that will hold us back from making or seeing the world.

This book is my first experience of reading a travel self-help book. I have always been big on travelling but it never materialised more than just going for some religious place Gisela Hausmann gives me the desire to travel the world and read the books she has read and see the places she has seen.

Naked Determination is not only about how Gisela led her life till date or how much she has been through. It is more about the world she saw and her perspective about the same. We can learn from the stories of others. How they achieved and made in life irrespective of what they had to face.

Gisela Hausmann writes in simple language and is very perspective in what she writes. In a chapter about her trip to Tibet, she talks about her favourite book “Seven Years in Tibet” and her meeting with the author of the book.

The way she has described her two journeys to the Roof of the World and how everything in the world is in the state of flux, if you wait too long, it may never been the same.  The Tibet in the book and that Gisela Hausmann saw and experienced were completely different. It is with every story of hers, it is simple yet there is a gem hiding behind the whole experience which can be true for all of us.

This is the USP of the book that Gisela writes about her own life in her book but the lessons are universal and applicable for all of us.
