First published in 1981, VOLUNTARY SIMPLICITY was quickly recognized as a powerful and visionary work in the emerging dialogue over sustainable living. Now-more than twenty years later and with many of the planet′s environmental stresses more urgent than ever-Duane Elgin has once again revised and updated his revolutionary book.

VOLUNTARY SIMPLICITY is not a book about living in poverty; it is a book about living with balance. Elgin illuminates the changes that an increasing number of Americans are making in their everyday lives-adjustments in day-to-day living that are an active, positive response to the complex dilemmas of our time. By embracing the tenets of voluntary simplicity-frugal consumption, ecological awareness, and personal growth-people can change their lives and, in the process, save our planet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Although the original book was written in 1981, it is a "must-read" for everyone looking for a simpler life. Mr. Elgin presents his material in a very believable and doable manner. His writing just rings true. I can hardly wait to get my hands on the updated copy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elgin was years ahead of the current simplicity movement, yet everything he says makes absolute sense to me.
