Enjoyed reading about this lad's journey into adulthood written at the start of the last recession. Good reminder of the rewards from living a simple life, though perhaps only someone with Scots lineage could have lived such a frugal life!
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.
Many thanks

I read loads of books, I am a reading addict and enjoy the vast majority of them, but this book got to me more than any book I have read in a long long time. I shouldn't really like it. I am not generally keen on things American and books by 20-somethings often have an arrogance born of certainty that can interfere with an older woman's pleasure of reading. This book was so refreshing in its examination of values. It made me really think about my own life and values in a way I have not done in years. The tale is beautifully written, the humour is spot on and I loved the self-questioning and the chronicle of change. I suppose its attraction was magnified by being read against a backdrop of D Trump's first 100 days in office, but even so..... I have told all my friends and hope they read it too. I also read On Walden Pond as a 20-something, but this is simply excellent. Thank you for sharing, Ken Ilgunas.

This book appealed to me knowing what huge student debts young people incur who have no idea what impact it will have on their future. I was curious to see the lengths the author would go to be debt free. Not only is it a very thought provoking book but it is a great travelogue and fascinating reading his philosophy on the people he meets. Should be compulsory reading for all aspiring to go to uni.

I did really quite enjoy this book, it's well written with an easy style and at times I forgot to put it down, my only issue was it took so long to actually get into living in the van.

This is more of a story with getting out of debt and how essentially the young are forced through expensive education programs with few high paying rewards/jobs at the end. Sadly no solution is offered as we condemn young generations to a lifetime of financial struggle. It's up to the individual to open there eyes - see the bigger picture - and live a good life they want.

Very soon after starting to read this book, I realised that it was exceptionally well written. So much so that I could relax and enjoy the experience of reading it. If it happened to be instructional, or if it provoked new thinking on my part that would be a bonus.
I am happy to report that it did both those things and I was faced with the hard choice of finishing it quickly to find out what happens or savouring it slowly to extend the pleasure.

I so enjoyed this book. It just makes me realise how weighed down young people are by debt, material possessions & expectations before they even start out. Very refreshing.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I found it very difficult to put down and kept finding myself smiling and nodding in agreement at many of the well written sentences. I think that this book would be best enjoyed by alternate thinkers, indebted students, corporate puppets, CEO's and the rest of the world.
