An excellent display of the excesses in our system, but not at all a system that can scale up. Also note, the author lives in the UK, so a few of his work arounds (asking grocers for their old produce) are actively illegal or worst or will get you laughed at least in the USA. Worth the read for the concept.

A worthwhile read! Appreciated author-Mark Boyle's sharing his journey. I have been reading and practicing a thrifty lifestyle. Mark Boyle is going a step further than thrifty, stepping out of the everyday and into his own spiritual/lifestyle choice. Living closer to nature. People in my life think I have a small foot print. Compared to the author I have mammoth feet! A must read if just to witness someones courageous break from the everyday norm. His story is life affirming and an inspiration for living in a consumer world.

this guy has alot of energy and idealism. the book is well worth the read, it really stuck with me.

quite a concept really just to do things (big things) for no money ever and have faith that everything will work out. I wish him the best on his quest to help usher in a new age.

This is more than living outside of a consumer-driven system, it's a spiritual journey that is made credible by someone actually having lived it. Other books may talk about their journey into happiness, but are nothing but fluff, compared to this.

Some of the ideas in here are hidden gems, and you have to be astute to see them, such as community over autonomy, reducing your own footprint by creating your own energy, living with mostly local resources, and removing your wastes yourself, and much more.

Worthwhile read.
