Book Description

Instantly named Freedom Book of The Month and a major influence in the Cyber-underground, A Lodging of Wayfaring Men is the story of freedom-seekers who create an alternative society on the Internet - a virtual society, with no possibility of oversight or control. It grows so fast that governments and “leaders” are terrified, and fight to co-opt this cyber-society before it undermines the power of the governing elite.

The main body of the book is followed by a set of essays and a supplemental narrative that were composed as the book was being written.

For those of you who may not have read the marvelous A Lodging of Wayfaring Men, I strongly encourage you to do so.
-- Capital Reward Blog

The novel leads us through a clever plot where the principles of freedom and individuality lead to a free market, one not controlled by governments or by tax men. The narrative is gripping. The reader cannot lay the book down.
-- Dr. Thomas Dorman

As full as my reading schedule is, I plan to make time to return to A Lodging of Wayfaring Men in order to glean the most from this interesting, thought-provoking tale.
-- Sunni Maravillosa,

Of the twenty five or so people I worked with last fall, all of them revered A Lodging of Wayfaring Men as a bible. They referred to the house and their community effort as a Lodge. We all felt it was modeled on the Free Souls.
-- HW, underground programmer

One of the most thought-provoking books to hit the information highway in recent times.
-- David MacGregor, Sovereign Living

4.0 out of 5 stars A libertarian wet dream August 13, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The story is interesting and the characters well drawn, but it was too unrealistic to fully capture my imagination.
The story concerns a large number of brilliant thinkers, programmers, financiers, artists and others who have noticed that the current form of government is little more than a glorified protection scheme which starts wars and impedes human progress. They note that if it is immoral for one man to take from another, it is immoral for a group, gang, or government to take from or dictate to free adults. They notice that the government is increasing its thugish intrusions into every aspect of our lives, mostly to get money so they can continue to buy votes and stay in power. Where the book was unsatisfying was in the ease with which the brilliant ones were able to circumvent rules and taxes by using unbreakable encryption on the Internet. It sounded vaguely plausible, but would not really have had a chance.
The book should be on the same shelf as Atlas Shrugged, Unintended Consequences, Moulon Labe, and others which point out our servitude to a bloated and incompetent government. It has some clear thinking and convincing arguments, but it is not a "how to get free" manual.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful and challenging! May 18, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is not an easy read, and most people will need to re-read it and consider it deeply for a while to get the most out of it. Prepare to have many of your ideas challenged, some you have held all of your life. This book is especially good for open minded people who are having a hard time reconciling the free market and individual liberty ideas with their Christian religion. But be warned, you will need a truly open mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Educational and thought provoking May 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a book that will change or confirm the way you look at life. The plain truths about money, taxes and government are refreshing and game-changing. The story is good, but the message is powerful. I would call it a must read for thinking people today. I do not embrace all the values expressed by the characters, but I appreciate the author giving the reader room to decide for himself. Absolutely a great book for anyone willing to look at life from another perspective.
