Tripping with Jim is a simple, honest story by a complex person. It's a life's journey of stupid decisions, and close calls, written with humor, insights, and never-ending optimism.Think of yourself as a hobo, and jump on the train of thought with Jim Adduci. You will go from state to state of mind. It will be fun, interesting, and thought provoking. Each trip is an experience in life. He will bring you to the places he's been, both physically and mentally, that made him who he is today, for better or worse.​
