Alright, I realize that by giving this book an awful review I am hereby declaring to the world that I am of lesser intelligence than those who proclaim this book to be one of the most incredible ever written; but: bla, bla, bla, bla, bla, bla, bla. This was one of the most brain numbing, condescending, self righteous books I have ever read. Good grief, the man actually comes right out and says that he has never talked to anyone who said anything that was of any real value to him. I understand and agree with the general theme and points of this book. I too would love to live a simple life in the woods, free from technology and the stress of life, but I could certainly do it without insulting the rest of the world.
