Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Callenbach, a health and ecological writer in California, aims to show readers how to lead a self-determined, original lifestyle--and to do so frugally. His philosophy is based on three points--environment, health, and money--and he argues that doing something to benefit one of these points will inevitably benefit the other two. Another way of stating his philosophy is ``Enough is enough''; more only encumbers. This leads him to recommend a lifestyle that is reminiscent of the counterculture of the 1960s. Callenbach applies this philosophy to every aspect of life: food, finances, car and home ownership, health, employment, and child rearing. The topics covered are wide-ranging but are rarely fully developed; the advice is occasionally suspect but overall sound, if more useful to those living in large cities than other areas. A useful book for past, present, and future flower children.-- Judith M. Nixon, Purdue Univ. Lib., West Lafayette, Ind.
Now in a thoroughly revised and updated second edition, Ernest Callenbach's Living Cheaply With Style: Live Better & Spend Less is written and designed for the reader wanting to choosing gracious living over rampant consumerism, who seeks to live carefully and ecologically on a comfortable income with enough time to experience and enjoy their life. Callenbach has filled this little guide to inexpensive, gracious living with a wealth of money saving tips on food, housing, clothing, furniture, child rearing, travel, transportation, and more. Whether just starting out as a young independent adult, or entering one's golden years of retirement, Living Cheaply With Style will prove one of the most valuable money management and lifestyle guides you will have ever encountered.
