He's a curmudgeon and declares himself one in the introduction, even if he doesn't use that term. The writing style is crusty, earthy and very easy to read, even though he has more then a few axes to grind.
With the caution of telling them it is a overview and one man's opinion, I would give this book to someone new to the nudist lifestyle. He does not go into details with many of his comentaries, so I don't really consider it a guidebook or manual. In many ways it really the story of his moving from a city highrise apartment to a trailer in a quiet resort.
4 out 5 stars for the lack of detail.
About the writing:
It would be possible to critically rake this book over the coals for much of its style and flow, but as it was written in the brief time Mr. Penhallow had left in his life, many of its sins can be forgiven. However, I do wish that Ms. Lovell had exercised her editorial/rewrite control as there are several dangling references and repeated comentaries that needed to be completed or removed.
Also don't let the title fool you, anyone who has trailers at 2 different resorts, a 5-ton truck to move the "essentials" between the 2 and 4 microwaves, cannot be called parsimonious and barely be called frugal. ;)
