#50 Book Review for Canadian Book Review Challenge

We live in a greedy time. We over-consume and overspend. We work 60 or more hours a week to support our every growing lifestyle and we feel tired and exhausted all the time. Many of us are getting ill because we can never relax and simply be. This has become art of the neurosis of our time.

Betty Jane Wylie writes about the necessity for us to simplify our lives. This is especially the case for our culture during these difficult financial times. Enough is a book about voluntary simplicity that examines the benefits of a simpler lifestyle.

Ten years ago, Bettie Jane Wylie got rid of her big possessions in Toronto and moved to Muskokas to pursue a simpler life. She discovered the peace and happiness of living frugally and with a lot less. Her book is so inspiring and encouraging that most readers will want to try out her advice. I know I will be trying her strategies out very soon.
