The first review for Larry’s latest book is out and it comes to us from the Hollywood Digest.

“This was not the first time Taunton has traveled worldwide, so he was no novice to the expedition. But for this adventure, he had a specific purpose in mind. Larry Alex Taunton traveled with his son to select cities throughout the world to measure these countries against America and to determine if the US is really the greatest nation of all. His journey was very recent, concluding just as Covid-19 struck the world, so his summations are timely and relevant for 2020.


His experiences are captivating, fun, and full of adventure.”
