The 10 part review of Just Enough by Azby Brown is available in one big downloadable gob!



Book summary from Amazon.com (Kindle version):

The world has changed immeasurably over the last thirty years, with more, bigger, better being the common mantra. But in the midst of this constantly evolving world, there is a growing community of people who are looking at our history, searching for answers to issues that are faced everywhere, such as energy, water, materials, food and population crisis.

In Just Enough, author Azby Brown turned to the history of Japan, where he finds a number of lessons on living in a sustainable society that translate beyond place and time. This book of stories depicts vanished ways of life from the point of view of a contemporary observer, and presents a compelling argument around how to forge a society that is conservation-minded, waste-free, well-housed, well-fed and economically robust.

Included at the end of each section are lessons in which Brown elaborates on what Edo Period life has to offer us in the global battle to reverse environmental degradation. Covering topics on everything from transportation, interconnected systems, and waste reduction to the need for spiritual centers in the home, there is something here for everyone looking to make changes in their life.

Just Enough is a much-needed beacon in our evolving world, giving us hope in our efforts to achieve sustainability now.

Hi Paul,

Is there a PDF downloadable version of the book, or can there be? It currently is very very expensive to buy the 2013 edition on Amazon.ca.
A new version of the book is coming out April 22, 2022 though.

That would be a good question for the publisher.  I noticed the amazon price for this book fluctuates a lot, so it might be worth setting up a watch on camelcamelcamel (they can send an email when the price goes below a certain amount - great way to save some money)

There's also the Kindle version out now

Wow, what a great way to end year 2023, a 10 podcast freebie I've just finished listening to, so grateful for the generosity of sharing shown throughout the site. Merry Christmas permies, from a beautiful summery Australia.
 
So then I told Joseph Stalin to piss off! Remember that tiny ad?
