What if the most extraordinary journey of your life began with the antics of a squirrel? Join us on this episode of Man Versus Brand as we talk to author Brian Livingston as he discusses his nearly year-long hike on the Appalachian Trail. We delve into his decision to begin law school at Washington & Lee University School of Law after the hike and journey into practicing law. Lastly, we cover his pivot into writing his debut novel, “The Habit of Squirrels.” The book is loosely based on his own hike, the people he met along the trail, and his revelations on his life. What can one learn about themselves on a year-long, challenging hike? I think anyone would be forced to reconcile the life they’ve lived and determine what kind of person they want to be. Let’s see what Brian learned as i decide if the Appalachian Trail is my next big trip.
