Upon examining his life, Winn Conover, successful businessman, pillar of his community, discovers that "something was missing. It was not was something inside."

wonderful starting over

Ran across this book several years ago at a local bookstore, lost track of it, found it again looking for something else. It's a wonderful novel about how one can begin a new life that is deeper and more connected than one's old one.

A spiritual contemplative experience

I don't particularly enjoy reading fiction novels, but I was intrigued by Winn's endurance to throw away his identity, his family, his prominent position in the community, and, most of all, his comfortable life. It's not every day that a very wealthy and educated middle aged man, sound of mind, decides to do something totally irrational, by leaving his loved ones, his bank accounts, his assets, and his successful business, and goes naked into the night, wandering around the country with the true hope to find a new identity and the true meaning of his existence. It takes a lot of guts and a `desperate' drive. This is what kept me devouring the book page after page, depicting myself in the same situation, and living his experience as he is about to start a precarious new life, just about when he had pratically achieved everything and had accumulated wealth and power. Each chapter kept me nailed to its story with trepidation and suspense. I had a spiritual contemplative experience, and I cried with Booker, when Nita died. Now I can hardly wait to buy the sequel "Lost in Las Vegas" and to read more about Booker's new life with the Pueblo Indians.

An amazing journey

A spiritually renewing read from beginning to end. I became a willing participant in Booker's emotional quest and will not soon forget Naked's powerful message. Monty Joynes is a truly gifted writer, and I look forward to reading more from him!


From the very start of the book I was drawn to the main character, Booker. His growth and understanding of life unfolded an opportunity for me to examine my own life and priorities. I found it to be an easy read and can hardly wait for a sequel.

Warm, compassionate, an eye opener

Terrific book!!! Very spiritual and in-depth. As I read on, I felt I was a participant thoughout the journey, feeling every emotion. A truly excellent read.
