Product description


"He relates his travails with charisma, self-deprecation and an ability to look at the bigger picture. An intriguing look at what can be done with determination and an open mind." (The Big Issue)


"Reading Mark Boyle's account of his courageous year-long experiment helps to break the spell of money over your life. It reminds us that a simple life can be a rewarding one. Even if you only want to live on less money rather than none, this book is jam-packed with practical tips for comfortable survival." (Theo Simon - Lead singer of Seize the Day and activist)

"The story of one man’s journey to defuse the ‘consumption explosion’ by turning his back on the normally unquestioned habits of daily economic life. Mark Boyle writes engagingly, like a scout who has run ahead of the crowd to send back reports from a better world where we live more in balance with other people, the planet that sustains us, and ourselves." (Andrew Simms - Policy Director of the New Economics Foundation and author of Tescopoly)

"Intriguing. It makes several very important points. A powerful look not so much into the past as into the future." (Bill McKibben)

"Mark Boyle is one of the prophets of the transition movement, and what he writes is important - but this book is also a wonderful, funny and thoughtful glimpse into the future." (David Boyle - Author of "Bad Company: The Rise and Fall of the Great British Corporation")

"The fascinating story of an important social experiment, told with humility, insight and great humour. Mark is a brave and big-hearted character whose example is an invitation to all of us to change the way we live - not just because we should, but also because we might enjoy it. Essential, enjoyable reading." (Chris Cleave - Sunday Times bestselling author of The Other Hand and Guardian columnist)

"An inspiring and entertaining guide to escaping the money trap and reconnecting with reality." (Paul Kingsnorth - author of Real England: The Battle Against the Bland)

"Inspiring, thought-provoking and eye-opening. Mark writes from the heart with compelling honesty and humour. Fascinating." (Brigit Strawbridge - Star of BBC’s "It’s Not Easy Being Green")

"A pleasure to read. An important experiment which has relevance for everything from global sustainability to local community. Boyle tells it with wit, good humour, and generosity of spirit." (Patrick Whitefield - Author of "Permaculture in a Nutshell")

"An inspiring, hair-raising journey into a world which most of us can only begin to imagine. Fearless and funny, Boyle’s descriptions of simple living and its unexpected repercussions are guaranteed to make you smile." (Kate Aydin)

"Living with less need not be austere and miserable; rather it left Mark Boyle leaner, more skilled, and, ultimately, wiser. This is, perhaps, the greatest lesson of this inspirational book." (Rob Hopkins - Author of The Transition Handbook and founder of the Transition Movement)
