The Man Who Quit Money by Mark Sundeen
The Man Who Quit Money

Charles Mattoon, January 2, 2013

Besides a fascinating bio of an unusual and, in my opinion, highly exemplary man, this is a radical challenge to deep-seated conceptions of money and what we work for. It goes to the heart of homo sapiens economicus and how that is inseparable from our spiritual reality and its demands on how we live. Daniel Suelo's life story reads like another flawed human being on a courageous road to align values with action, a modern secular monk carrying out a noble experiment (and as Emerson said, all life is an experiment) for the benefit of all of us who care to take a deep look at his example, our society, and inside themselves. Highly recommended.
