Imagine a year without spending - or even touching - money. Former businessman Mark Boyle did just that and here is his extraordinary story. Going back to basics and following his own strict rules, Mark learned ingenious ways to eliminate his bills and discovered that good friends are all the riches you need.
Encountering seasonal foods, solar panels, skill-swapping schemes, cuttlefish toothpaste, compost toilets, and - the unthinkable - a cash-free Christmas, Boyle puts the fun into frugality and offers some great tips for economical (and environmentally friendly) living. A testament to Mark's astounding determination, this witty and heart-warming book will make you re-evaluate your relationship to your wallet.

"Essential and enjoyable reading. The fascinating story of an important social experiment, told with humility, insight, and great humour." (Chris Cleave, Sunday Times best-selling author of The Other Hand and Guardian columnist)
That he wasn't hateful or unrealistic about our economy's need to realize the effect of money and debt. He was straight forward but optomistic, emphathetic, and empowering.
He chuckles at the right spots in the reading. It keeps it light hearted.
Not necessarily. It requires thought and contemplation.
A great overview of the effects of money and debt and an empowering guide to beginning a life of strength in community instead of dependancy on money.
