Influential

I think he should move on because he inspires people to do try different experiences not to do the same thing all their life. He also wrote a book "Into The Wild" . It is an expansion of Krakauer's 9,000-word article on Christopher McCandless titled "Death of an Innocent", which appeared in the January 1993 issue of outside.
