Before diving into the crucial life lessons this non-fiction book has personally taught me, I would like to give a brief summary. I would also like to quickly mention why it has first impacted me many years ago.
I hope to encourage you to pick up this book or at the very least to watch the movie “Into the Wild.” If not, I hope this post helps you reflect on the lessons you have personally learned in your life.
If you recognize the title of this book, it may be because it is a critically acclaimed and often talk about for its controversy and its life-changing read. There is also a movie by the same name that was filmed a decade after the book’s publication. The book “Into the Wild” by Jon Krakauer came out in 1996 while the movie directed by Sean Penn was released in 2007.
