About the Author

Author seems to assume that everyone with a car, house and job is a wage/salary slave - needs to realise that many enjoy their lives and jobs and would find his lifestyle abhorrent.
Good he recognised that he was never actually poor as he always had family and friends as a back up.
Would be interesting to read an updated version now that lending is more controlled and unemployment levels declining along with real incomes.
All good stuff, hopes there's a follow up.
This is a down-to-earth great read on how the author tackles his debt and has many adventures (eg cr*p jobs) to cure the debt. The author is a naturally gifted writer, the book is so well written, I was only a quarter of the way through and already recommending it to friends. I am going to look out for other books by this writer.
I found the rather pointed intervals reviewing Josh's quite different progress rather one dimensional and slightly clumsy unfortunately.
I will probably reread this in future, but may need to work out why the Josh sections don't work for me. At the moment they seem to feel tacked on and somehow superficial or artificial.
Otherwise, intersting, engaging and thought provoking.
I guess it'd be useful to know about Thoreau and the Beats but it's not essential. You can enjoy the story as it is.
