Sadly I have seen and heard very little on this (his story & book) - would be love for Dale to be on the Daily Show (or Cobert-both!!) and get some real exposure.
I personally wish gap year was in the US, so many don't even know about it you mention it and they can't grasp others do it- so many IRL are so fixated on college - I hear college even mentioned to elementary level kids as the end all!
