About the Author
Chelsea grew up with the internet, building websites from a young age, witnessing the evolution of the globally connected culture she always knew was possible. She’s passionate about growing the movement of sharing and in revealing what she calls “our inherent interdependence.” She lives in San Francisco, and has shared nearly everything covered in this book. She’s an entrepreneur, a marketing consultant, and a digi-hippie at heart.
Gabriel is a life adventurer, a business consultant, a father of two, and an avid Couchsurfer. He has had a wildly successful career, but has always found solace in connecting with others and in being generous. He sees no logical reason not to share and regularly buys strangers coffee, pays their bridge tolls, and generally passes on the spirit of goodwill to others. He now lives with his wife and two kids in Southern California, and is excited to see how far and wide the vision for this book can spread.
Alexandra is a talented filmmaker. She found the sharing economy through Couchsurfing, which prompted her to crowdfund, film, and edit her first full feature documentary “One Couch at a Time,” which tells the story of traveling the world for 6 months, staying on strangers' couches along the way. She’s an avid sharer, regularly hosting international guests and testing the limits of what it means to share.

This is a really helpful and comprehensive guide for:
• Young people looking for ways to enrich their everyday experience without spending a lot of money
• Retired folks wanting to continue adding pizazz to their life on a fixed income
• High school and college age people looking for an exciting alternative to the standard “get a job” or “go to college” routine
• Individuals looking to truly connect with others using technology as a means to meet for fulfilling “in person” interaction and shared, win-win experiences
• Anyone looking to maximize their life journey with minimum cost and maximum satisfaction
Whether you think you know everything there is to know about the sharing economy or you have just heard the expression and know nothing about it, you will LOVE this guide. There is something for everyone and it is truly delightful to read about the authors’ experiences. You will get tons of practical ideas to help you stretch your dollar, gain more meaningful and satisfying person-to-person interactions, and live your passion.
This book gives me hope that there is a way to turn our world around…through mutually benefiting acts that nurture and support human beings, shared experiences, and that ultimately engender greater trust in oneself and others. You gotta read this book!
The book is organized really smart, with chapters on a shareable home, transportation, stuff, education, etc. In addition to the guides, there are a lot of personal stories and accounts of how sharing changed peoples lives for the better - really inspiring stuff! It's a great book to pick up and put down when you feel like it, but it's also a fun, informative read all the way through. And I really like the vision for the future at the end... get this book - it's worth every penny and more!
I liked the book a lot and discovered quite a few new services to try out.
