James Taris
THE GLOBETROTTING LETSAHOLIC
Travelling the world on LETS

From 2002 to 2004, James Taris went on 4 overseas tours, staying FREE with 63 LETS hosts in 19 countries, on 5 continents. On these tours, James Taris shared his LETS ideals and experiences - through his LETS Favours presentations - with enthusiastic LETS members in each country. The presentation was always the same, and so was the response. His arrival triggered much interest from the media, who interviewed him for newspapers, radio and TV. They were intrigued by the Globetrotting LETSaholic. His positive message has inspired LETS members to increase their LETS activities by an average of about 30 percent. LETS groups have also had an increase in membership with about 50% of the guests in his audiences choosing to join.

This massive ebook is a compilation of all the LETS stories from his 3 LETS Tours books: Global Quest for Local LETS, Land of the LETS Green Dollar, and 400-Day LETS Odyssey. If you'd like to be informed, entertained and inspired ... read this book.
