This week I published a short book called Just Enough is Plenty: Thoreau’s Alternative Economics, available in paperback here and in pdf on a ‘pay what you want’ basis here. Feel free to share the pdf as a post-consumerist Christmas present.
Philip Cafaro, author of Thoreau’s Living Ethics wrote this about my new book:
“Just Enough Is Plenty is a superb introduction to Thoreau’s life and ideas, written with clarity and style by a leading exponent of Thoreau’s economics of voluntary simplicity. Samuel Alexander expertly guides the reader through the often difficult terrain of Thoreau’s economic ideas, highlighting the opportunities for living simpler, freer lives. The result will help a new generation of readers understand Thoreau’s essential message – and apply it to their own lives. The benefits of doing so are potentially immense.”
