First published in 1981, Voluntary Simplicity was quickly recognized as a powerful and visionary work in the emerging dialogue over sustainable living. Now – more than twenty years later and with many of the planet′s environmental stresses more urgent than ever – Duane Elgin has once again revised and updated his revolutionary book.

Voluntary Simplicity is not a book about living in poverty; it is a book about living with balance. Elgin illuminates the changes that an increasing number of Americans are making in their everyday lives – adjustments in day-to-day living that are an active, positive response to the complex dilemmas of our time. By embracing the tenets of voluntary simplicity-frugal consumption, ecological awareness, and personal growth-people can change their lives and, in the process, save our planet.
