During the last week, I had the pleasure to read an inspiring book written by Samuel Alexander. Sam also writes a very good blog at simplicitycollective.com and is one of the co-directors of the Simplicity Institute. Sam and I met at this year’s Sustainable Living Festival, but we didn’t get to talk nearly enough.
Anyway, what can I say about this book? Let me tell you that I have read many utopian and dystopian novels in my time, so believe me when I tell you that this book is the best in its genre. Truly. It is that good. I felt so many emotions during reading it, and it took me back to the early years when I took various sustainable living actions around my own suburban block. Very believable.
Here is my official book review.

If you are looking for a realistic vision of what may or that you hope could happen, you could do no worse than grabbing a copy of this book.
Note: Links to the book title are Amazon affiliate links, where I will be paid a very small fee for referral.

Im keeping my eye out for that one. Hope the local library has it.
Gavin Webber says
Hi Lynda, I think it is self published, so it will be a while before the library gets a copy. If your library is like mine, you will be able to request a copy.
Just finished reading the book. You have done a wonderful job reviewing it and I wholeheartedly agree with what you thought of it. For anyone having a bit of a relapse like I have,back to a consumerist lifestyle, it will bring you back to a place you know you should be.
