In Miles Ahead Max Wohlgemuth Kitslaar tells the story of his 17,000 kilometre-long journey on a 40 year-old Moto Guzzi from Chile to New York, in the footsteps of Kerouac and Che Guevarra. The primary objective of this journey of self-discovery was to help reveal the human face of a continent. Along the way, Max visited 32 inspiring entrepreneurs who are working towards a better world while offering a profitable and positive alternative, full of hope.
Miles Ahead places entrepreneurs in the spotlight who tackle social problems, while still making a living. A better world is neither a political issue nor a bottomless pit for (government) subsidies. In this book, Max aims to show that if we put our minds to it, we can all help bring about a better world.
