My first exposure to his writing was in his article, The Economics of Fermentation (a variation in Wise Traditions), mentioned in a previous post.
Something about his writing always seems to ring true with me. Perhaps he's saying things that I know but can't articulate yet. Or perhaps he has an attractive writing style. Or something else, I don't know.
There are some ideas in this book that have really got me thinking. I won't go in to detail now, just listing a few.
- Changing one thing means changing every thing.
- If you listen closely to your body, it will tell you what nutrition it needs. If you hear it saying "eat cake", then eat cake!
- The way that our modern lives feel so busy, so hectic is not an unfortunate consequence of our lifestyle, but a central feature. In software we say "it's not a bug, it's a feature".
More to come.
