Booring!
I had been hoping for lots of pictures of cool memorabilia of products devices designed for thrift. Instead the book is almost all text and contains an unexciting non-fiction accounting of thrift in history. Lots of half-baked thinking and glorification of thrift. Its like a religeon.

I had hoped that book would help me be more thrifty. Instead it reads like a museam pamphlet or maybe a religeous tract.

I apologise to the author, who is truly expert and had put his heart and soul into the book. But I don't recommend it.
