Title: ENOUGH: Finding More by Living with Less
Author: Will Davis Jr.
Genre: Inspirational/Christian Living
Do you have enough?
How much is enough? Really?
Our culture pushes us to strive for more--more money, more stuff, more clout. But how much is enough? And how do we know when we have too much of a good thing?
Will Davis Jr challenges us to discover the peace that comes through contentment with what we have and compassion for those in need. He shows us through surprising statistics, scriptural insight, and powerful real-life stories.
If you want to pursue a life that truly statisfies, then read ENOUGH.
With the idea that "less is more" that is gaining in popularity, I thought this book would be interesting to read. I was a bit disheartened at first, as it talked about the people that worked two jobs, were away from home all the time, and kept buying more stuff because they wanted to maintain some rich lifestyle. Or the lady who didn't have enough clothes and kept buying more and more and more...
Okay, if you are making 5 digit annual income (if the first number starts with an 8 or 9) or 6 digit income, this book is for you. Do you have enough? Can you scale back a little and be happy? Really? (If you are making a 5 digit income that starts with a 1--well, you might not want to read the book. You might end up bit discouraged--because chances are you don't have enough.)
My emotions are torn on this book. I'm one of the lower class, poverty level people reading this book. I'm not desperate enough (yet) to sell all my furniture and belongings on ebay (as someone did on this book) but that is due to strict money management. However, if you are one of those who buys just to buy and then doesn't wear half the things in your closet -- this book is for you. $13.99. 229 pages.
