David Blankenhorn is founder and president of the Institute for American Values, a nonpartisan organization devoted to strengthening families and civil society in the U.S. and the world. For the past three years, he has led an initiative at the institute to study thrift. A 1998 profile in the New York Times described Blankenhorn as a "consensus builder for a moral base in society." He lives in New York City with his wife, Raina, their son, Raymond, and their two daughters, Sophia and Alexandra.

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.
