Freebie: Thriving on Less Ebook

leave a comment »

I found this ebook in the sidebar of one of my favorite sites,  It’s written by ZenHabits’ own Leo Babauta as a supplement to his (not free) book, The Power of Less and is a brilliant how-to for not only coping with our current economic hardship, but also overcoming the unchecked consumerism and crippling debt that is all too common these days.

The full title of this free ebook is Thriving on Less: Simplifying in a Tough Economy.  It’s a quick and easy read, just 27 pages, but it is packed with very useful information.  It’s not one of those books that acts like it has some significance without actually being helpful nor does it present a one-size-fits-all solution for getting out of debt and living simply.  Rather it is comprised primarily of Leo’s own experiences and lessons learned through his journey.

The highlight of this book is definitely the chapters on debt management and elimination.  It provides very practical advice, advice that gets you results almost immediately.  During the reading, it had me brainstorming all the possible ways I could the tips to my life.  I had several “Why didn’t I think of that?!” moments.  His advice is so obvious that making them principles to live by hadn’t even occurred to me.  I never gave them much notice until Leo threw them at me in such a practical way.

Great and useful, ebook especially for the price!
