Wanted: 100 people to live in my new world order: a perfect utopia of our own design, no riff-raff, convicts or bongos. No space travel will be involved in this project. Cult-seekers need not apply. In one of the most original books of the year, Danny Wallace, award-winning journalist, and co-author of "Are You Dave Gorman?", places an advert on the internet and waits - inspired by stories of his great uncle Gallus and his failed attempts to set up a commune in post-war Switzerland, Danny tries to do the same and this time succeed. He will travel anywhere, meet anyone. And he'll take it very, very seriously. "Join Me" is the magnificent story of his attempt to recruit 100 people to create a perfect world. But what will that be? Where will they live? Will they have rules? Will they agree on anything? Is one man's Heaven another man's Hell? This modern take on Utopia, will say a million things about the world in which we live. And, if you've read "Are You Dave Gorman?" you'll know that it will be very, very funny.

I am a HUGE fan of Danny Wallace and this book takes you on a journey of emotions - mainly humour, humour and more humour. From the humble beginnings of a collective to a full blown out Army, Danny Wallace manages to hold my interest by detailing his many travels in order to fulfill an old family members dream. I myself am a joinee (of the Karma Army) and as my good deed, I suggest you read this book.
