It sounds too good to be true. You can save money and the world, inoculate yourself against many of the ills of modern life, and enjoy everything more on both the sensual and profound levels? Preposterous! Yet here is a toolkit to help you do just that. A tweak here, a twiddle there; every strategy in The Art Of Frugal Hedonism has been designed to help you target the most important habits of mind and action needed for living frugally but hedonistically. Apply a couple, and you'll definitely have a few extra dollars in your pocket and enjoy more sunsets. Apply the lot, and you'll wake up one day and realise that you're happier, wealthier, fitter, and more in lust with life than you'd ever thought possible.

What a neat-to-read practical book !! I loved each short chapter of it and realized that I've been doing many things suggested; however, I'll put into practice the other ones that make sense. 'Loved it, and I recommend it to others who like to save as much money as possible, especially others whose goal is a permanent STAY-cation in our ideal Minnesota.

A frugality handbook that offers excellent advice without taking itself too seriously. Each chapter is a short (and often hilarious) essay to inspire savings on food, travel, entertainment, and more. And since the authors are Australian, you'll also get tips on using Vegemite and kangaroo meat! Wisdom your grandmother would be proud of, told with thoroughly modern attitude and humor.

For most of human history, we have been used to social and environmental setups where if we behave irresponsibly or greedily or lazily, life begins to suck: our neighbours shun us; our crops fail; all our assets go to pot; our animals die; our drinking water gets foul. Over time we have come to trust this mechanism that tells us that 'if life is really pleasant, then we can't be doing anything too bad'. So now, in this warped new setup, which enables us to comfortably and repeatedly do lazy, greedy things - causing really unimaginable harm - we just can't quite believe that our behavior could be deeply problematic, because our living conditions are so freakin' pleasant.
