How to Survive Without a Salary by Charles Long

Have you ever wished you could...
... quit your boring job?
... take a year off to travel the world?
... own your own home?
... move to the country?
... retire early?
... have more joy and contentment in your everyday life?

Stop wishing and start reading How to Survive Without a Salary. Since its first publication over twenty years ago, this book has helped many make their dreams come true through the "Conserver Lifestyle".

Author Charles Long shows that by changing from consumers to conservers, we can regain control over the way we live. Conservers don't worry about losing their jobs or not having enough for their retirement. They do work that they love instead of settling for whatever pays the rent. They have discovered that it is possible to survive, and even thrive, without a regular salary.

How to Survive Without a Salary shows you how you can create your own practical plan for leaving the world of wages by

*avoiding consumer traps *earning casual income *budgeting effectively
*finding alternatives to high retail prices *saving on taxes and insurance

If you want to leave the rat race behind, have been forced to leave it behind, or simply want to get away from it all for a while, How to Survive Without a Salary
offers a valuable combination of inspiration and practical advice that will show you how you can survive economically without compromising your values or your happiness.

This was a nice, solid book, filled to the brim with useful information. While not every tidbit applies to everyone, there were at least a few new thoughts that made reading the book worthwhile.

I'm going to give this one seven stars. It's well written (if not well proofread) and easy to read. The author has walked his talk and it shows.

Rating: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
