Publisher Comments:

“Reading this will lead you to a better life.”
—Dean Nelson, author of God Hides in Plain Sight

 

In The 100 Thing Challenge Dave Bruno relates how he remade his life and regained his soul by getting rid of almost everything. But The 100 Thing Challenge is more than just the story of how one man started a movement to unhook himself from consumerism by winnowing his lifes possessions down to 100 things in one year. Its also an inspiring, invigorating guide to how we all can begin to live simpler, more meaningful lives.

Synopsis:

"The 100 Thing Challenge" is not only the story of how one ordinary man started a movement to unhook himself from consumerism by winnowing his possessions down to 100 things in one year, it's an inspiring look at how we all can begin to live simpler, more meaningful lives.

Synopsis:

An ordinary man's inspiring journey toward a simpler, more meaningful life.

In 2008, average American family man Dave Bruno decided to unhook himself from the intravenous drip of consumerism that fueled his life by winnowing all his personal possessions down to just 100 things. Little did he realize that he would be igniting a grassroots movement—soon after Dave embarked on his journey, media around the world took notice and others started to follow his lead.

A cause for pause, The 100 Thing Challenge is a response to the culture of materialism in America, one that has filled our lives with the constant and unsatisfactory desire for "more." Dave Bruno offers compelling anecdotes and practical advice to help readers live more meaningfully, simply by casting off the unnecessary "stuff" that clutters their lives. The 100 Thing Challenge is a golden opportunity to experience the positive changes that occur as you defiantly hop off the treadmill of consumerism.
