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 TheArt 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.
I loved this book. It is the antidote to consumerism, making you feel really good about being resourceful. Lot's Of ideas but also support for the frugal lifestyle which is much needed psychologically when there is overwhelming societal pressure to constantly work, consume and throw away.
Loved the title, loved the book
The book is packed with ideas, inspiration and references. I practice much of what is in this book, but its always great to have your choices reaffirmed and to learnt new things. Whether you are on the path to frugal hedonism and the riches that it brings or about to step onto it, then read this book!
Loved this book
I loved this book. The information is expressed with humour and wit; like you are listening to a really funny, caring and well traveled friend. As a consequence I really absorbed the information and I have found myself making better decisions. No more magazines and mindless take away coffee, not because I am forcing myself or as a chore, but because life is magical without these things. My wallet no longer has a whole in it and I have this book to thank for it.
More frugal than first thought
It didnt bring anything new to the table. I was expecting much more after all the recommendations.
Couldn't put it down
Loved this book, written well, very witty and clever with lots of ideas and things to try.
I bought this book as a gift, having heard the author interviewed, so my review is someone else's but I trust her judgment. Enjoyable and interesting reading and wise advice.
Makes for interesting reading
We should all be learning to live more simply and tread lightly on this planet. This is a good book to look at doing just that.

Practice Frugal hedonism by giving the book a miss
You can get everything you need out of the book by just reading the table of contents. All the tips are pretty common sense. No practical useful advice whatsoever. Spend your money elsewhere.
Great book for people who want to enjoy life without breaking the bank and wrecking the planet. Well written, funny and informative.
Loved this book
This perspective of consumerism fitted mine...it is good to think about what we do or don't spend our money, time and resources on. Written with good humour..balanced.
The Art of Frugal Hedonism
"Total page turner... I just ate it up"--Davina Adamson "What a terrific idea, a book showing how frugal living can be pleasurable. Not the kind of smug pleasure of the drop-out or the feeling of moral superiority that comes with driving a Prius (yes, that's me), but real actual sensual pleasure... The free-est and most contented people pretty much follow the advice in The Art of Frugal Hedonism."--Clive Hamilton, author of Growth Fetish and co-author of Affluenza (from the foreword) "An invaluable harvest of tips oozing with hedonistic wit and wonder. Packed with ideas about why and how we are to live with less to ensure we have a hell of a lot more."--Meg Ulman, co-author of The Art of Free Travel "Liberate yourself from the work-to-spend cycle and become a frugal hedonist! This is the inspired message in this life-changing gem of a book. In an age that is obsessed with consumer trinkets and oblivious to waste, the philosophy of frugal hedonism provides a welcome and necessary antidote. The simplicity of this message is profound. Be frugal and be free."--Samuel Alexander, co-director of the Simplicity Institute
