The Art of Frugal Hedonism

By Adam Grubb, Annie Raser-Rowland, Chelsea Green Publishing

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. Read sample chapters

Positive Thinking in a Dark Age

By Jim Tull

Positive Thinking in a Dark Age is a collection of fourteen essays written over the past fifteen years. In a contentious world where social action usually means either direct aid or some form of political response, these essays together promote a ‘third way’ that is rooted in systems thinking, cultural transformation and the rebuilding of small-scale communities. Evidence of cultural and systemic unraveling is exposed throughout the essays, but emphasis is placed more on guiding and inspiring change. There is scarcely a sentence in this collection that does not directly serve the vision uniting all fourteen essays. Read the introduction to the book here.
