It is an innovative way to live, and the book does a great job of giving the details about the lifestyle - everything from choosing the van, setting it up, earning money along the way, safety, cooking, etc.
I hope my kids each read his book and follow his blog. They will understand me even better, and will be further encouraged to follow their own path.

And I can honestly say this book is my favourite.
I'm pretty sure I'm old enough to be the lad's dad, so the book doesn't resonate on every level, but I'm finding it to be very useful and enjoyable.
I should probably point out, after such gushing praise, that although we have the same surname, we're not in any way related!
The plan is to do a 9 month climbing and speedflying trip in my van next year and reading this is book is pushing my psych levels through the roof!
It is very well written and would be useful even if you're just taking a van on holiday for week or two. I wish I'd had this last year before my first road trip!
This book is extremely comprehensive and whilst it doesn't claim to teach you how to convert a van (this is covered by the author in his first book), it does give you plenty of tips on how to live, survive and thrive in your van out on the road.
This is based on the authors direct experience and covers why he decided to embark on this lifestyle, how he prepared, how to chooses where to stay, keeping clean, cooking and food, safety, entertainment on the road, making money, van maintenance and some motivational advice to get you off your backside and planning your own adventures.
There are some of the authors photographs in each chapter and whilst it is written in very matter of fact, dare I say almost bland, language, it is extremely informative and inspiring.
Well worth a read if this type of living entices you in even a tiny way. Even if you decide it a not for you, it still makes for a great read!
Whether you are thinking of living in a van or not this is a fascinating book and I can highly recommend it.
