Sometimes funny, always thoughtful, Wonderment: A love affair with adventure, writing, travel, philosophy, and family life is the memoir of a writer who relishes adventure, travel, people, writing, and the mystery of who we are and why. His eclectic lifestyle yields stories laced with the humor, romance, family lore and drama that anchor a life well lived. He becomes a journalist and science writer, survives the risks of sometimes impulsive life, and gradually discovers his own spirituality and optimism for the future.
Wonderment is a blend of thought and action, from the author’s childhood nightmares to mind-awakening moments in the American desert, to a brush with death in the neurology unit of a London hospital. After it was completed he knew in his gut that it was a legacy book and was delighted that others seemed to agree. Amazon greeted Wonderment with a royal flush of five-star reviews and it was nominated for the memoir prize in a regional book contest.
Wonderment was designed to intrigue, invoke smiles, and brighten its readers’ lives.

I enjoyed this book immensely. How Nigel Hey has crammed so many life experiences into a life fraught with occasional dread illnesses and difficult living conditions I’ll never understand.

Somewhere along the way he learns he is a constituent of the universe itself, and a man who can turn the rigors of joy or sadness into jewels of curiosity and adventure.
