I have this book on my coffee table. Provides a great reminder of little things to do when you are itching for an adventure and can't take one.

This book opened my eyes to all the little adventures that life has to offer. I loved reading it because the deeper I dived, the more lovely life became for me. Jump into puddles, relax, take time to truly admire the wilderness, and learn the names of plants and animals. It just makes the world sparkle differently. I recommend it to everyone.

Just from the title of the book this is going to be one of your more controversial type of books since what is living wild? How do you live wild? And most of all what is their term of wild and how do they perceive people as being able to live wild?

While I may not wish to do everything this book suggests, I found this book refreshing, inspiring, and fun. Makes you find new perspectives around you. The design of the book and art was also on point. Very well done, and I might have to check out some of the other books by this author.

On page 351 the author has for number 923-Living wild does not mean going on the most exotic, serious, or expensive adventures. It can mean seeking out and appreciating all the little things.
That is just one of many little contradictions found throughout this book. Number 867 says it is about experience not places and experience cost nothing. Yet there are so many about travel or activities that not all of us could afford. Take number 714 that says to book a last-minute flight to another country

In fairness, simply not at all my type of book. Plenty of it seems very simple or silly to me.

BUT overlooking that, trying to rate it fairly, what got to me is the whole 'everyday adventures' aspect. Whose everyday? It felt like a rarified everyday.

Offhand it looks like a fun graduation book. At least one quarter of the ideas assume that you have regular significant disposable income and a great deal of vacation time or don't have to work. So this is more for a well to do retiree or someone on
