Not at all what I was expecting. I guess I was looking forward to something a little more How-to, as food for thought, but this is a presentation of a variety of different people who live off the grid, and how and why they do.
The author's style leaves much to be desired, in my opinion. He presents a person, and says something like, "She's tall, beautiful and has a mouth full of bad teeth." You know, this sort of thing. Very rude, in my opinion, and it really dragged down the whole experience. I'm 1/3 of the way through, and I don't think I'll finish it. It's sad, actually, that the author has to be so gossip-columnist-y. Kinda skanky.
