“Reading this will lead you to a better life.”
—Dean Nelson, author of God Hides in Plain Sight
In The 100 Thing Challenge Dave Bruno relates how he remade his life and regained his soul by getting rid of almost everything. But The 100 Thing Challenge is more than just the story of how one man started a movement to unhook himself from consumerism by winnowing his life’s possessions down to 100 things in one year. It’s also an inspiring, invigorating guide to how we all can begin to live simpler, more meaningful lives.
A "must read" for everybody.
Great book, quick read and a very interesting book. Reading this book motivated and also informed me greatly about the consumerism in America. It helped open my eyes to the fact that what we need in life we cannot buy. Going to start my challenge ASAP!
re-write this in 100 words
Where Bruno is able to (with caveats) reduce his tangible belongings to ‘100 things’ he should have been as concise with his book. Far too much ‘blah, blah, blah’. This should have been five pages tops.
The 100 Thing Challenge
Very motivating. I really appreciated the honest and flexible approach Dave took in writing the book. I'm preparing for my challenge even though my 8 year old son is scared I'm going to make him do it. I'll do this one on my own!
