This review is from: Downshift to the Good Life: Scale it Down and Live it Up (52 Brilliant Ideas) (Paperback)
I really enjoyed this book. So many good ideas, and so helpfully presented in mum-friendly bite size bits. The author's style is so reassuring too. Supportive, compassionate and friendly, with a fair bit of down-to-earth thrown in. Each of the 52 ideas relates to a different aspect of the downshifting experience, eg deciding whether it's for you, unleashing your creativity, running a small business from home and making the most of your garden and kitchen. Each small chapter also offers linked ideas to try, and ways to review your progress. It also contains an 'agony aunt' section with questions from people interested in the various aspects of changing your life in this way.
Whether you're just in the stages of thinking about downshifting or you're well on the way, this book provides the essential guide.
