I ended up just skimming through all the chapters looking for anything of substance and finding nothing. It was all just too vague, padding, full of waffle, lots of repetition of the same themes and points, and nothing specific about how to live a life of voluntary simplicity. He quotes other writers quite a lot i.e. cut and paste of other people's material. At one point he just repeats the results of a third party survey on what people think of voluntary simplicity, running over several pages of quotes from random people covering every possible variation on what it might be.
Summary: Waste of my time and money, vague, nothing original, and nothing useful to act upon.
