Has anyone else read this book?
It's a very short tome written by the guy who did a lot of popularizing of the "Tiny House" phenomenon...he lived in a custom-built trailer for several years.
I picked it up, hoping to find some modern insights on simple living in a developed society.
What I found was a blend of ill-thought out environmentalism (many of the suggestions for "reducing one's carbon footprint" merely shift the environmental load to another entity), impractical selfishness (i.e., using the gym as your bathroom), and the sort of self-righteousness that unfortunately radiates from some activists (as the author describes himself).
Some of the author's thoughts are just plain ridculous...the US has too many toilets and showers being one of the more eccentric notions in the book...but too many of his examples don't line up with the practical realities of peoples actual lives.
That's my quick, rough take on the book.
Fire up those keyboards, let's get the discussion going!
and having less things is just so much nicer, easier to clean, maintain, take care of, etc...
I hate clutter and I think it comes from having a mom that wouldn't find something, go buy a new one, and then months or years later find the original six she'd bought to replace the first. I love my mom but that drives me nuts!
