    At age 30, Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus, left their six-figure corporate careers, jettisoned most of their material possessions, and started focusing on life's most important aspects. And they never looked back. This book's foreword and first chapter examine Joshua and Ryan's backgrounds, their troubled pasts, and their eventual spiral into depression. These chapters discuss why the authors didn't feel fulfilled by their careers and why they turned to society's idea of living: working ridiculous hours, wastefully spending money, living paycheck to paycheck. Instead of finding their passions, they pacified themselves with ephemeral indulgences, inducing a cocaine-like high that didn't last far past the checkout line.

    "WHY did they choose this narrator?"

    Story

    The book is fine...interesting, even. But the accent of the narrator (who sounds like a young Thurston Howell III) is completely incongruous for a book about living life simply written by two working-class guys from Dayton, Ohio.

    The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beat the common cold. But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop. The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED.

    Overall

    I almost didn't get this book based on previous reviews. I'm glad I decided to anyway. Fast action and a good story to back it up. Regardless of what others said, I thought the ending was excellent. I also liked the tribute to Steve Irwin—Crikey!
