THE NEW FRUGALITY How to Consume Less, Save More, and Live Better

by | Read by Chris Farrell

Business & Finance • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Chris Farrell's basic point is that monstrous corporations foster out-of-control spending in the gullible and innocent consumer. His advice on frugality is basic stuff, but his skillful reading—his first—makes up for the book's old news. While he often runs over his own words and his pauses for breath are audible, he enunciates well, and his tone is engagingly light and conversational. Instrumental music caps each chapter, smoothing out the transitions between Farrell's determined admonitions for green living and his more sedate mantra of “save—don’t spend.” This is a fast-paced overview of simple economic sense.
