The following are things that people have said about The Moneyless Manifesto:
The revolution before us is only worth joining if it goes to the depths that Mark has explored . . . it is my hope that this book will deepen its readers’ belief in the possibility of such a world.
– Charles Eisenstein, author of Sacred Economics (from the Foreword)
Mark Boyle’s ideas are dangerous in the best possible way. Read them at your own risk.
– Chris Guillebeau, New York Times bestselling author of The $100 Startup
An inspiring meditation on the divisive power of money, which also offers excellent practical suggestions for escaping its grip.
– Tom Hodgkinson, Sunday Times bestselling author of How to be Idle
Written with passion and outstanding integrity, Mark Boyle’s latest book breaks new ground in the field of genuine sustainability – one without money. It’s not as if we haven’t done this before. The Romans brought us money along with marriage (the ownership of a woman by her husband) and nuclear families. Boyle is living proof that it’s not only possible to live without money, but that life is more heart-ful, more real, and infinitely more sustainable.
– Manda Scott, Sunday Times bestselling author of Boudica and Rome
Mark Boyle’s book is at once practical, analytical and personal. A fine contribution that also opens on to the question of the very nature of the world we live in – and need to move beyond.
– John Zerzan, author of Future Primitive and Against Civilisation
Mark Boyle is a brave man. The Moneyless Manifesto explodes the myth about money and brings the reader nearer to the truth that money is not true wealth. It is the land, the forests, the animals, the people, the community and the human hands that creates true wealth. I hope the Chancellor of the Exchequer reads this book. This book will open the eyes of bankers, hedge fund managers and financiers who live in the world of make believe. The Moneyless Manifesto shatters the illusion that we cannot live without money.
– Satish Kumar, Editor-in-Chief of Resurgence & Ecologist
This book will make you think – make you wonder, make you ponder, maybe make you change. It’s remarkably important.
– Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy and The End of Nature
Our culture has lost its way and our love affair with money has led us to exploit people and our planetary resources to such an extent that we are now threatening our very existence and committing Ecocide. By reframing our reliance on money and demonstrating that we can even live without it in a modern society, Mark delivers a powerful message that we can build a saner, more ecologically balanced and just culture.
– Polly Higgins, author of Eradicating Ecocide
In this timely and deeply thought-provoking book Mark Boyle gently dissolves and re-thinks the ultimate quantity that so preoccupies us in our measurement-obsessed culture: money. Read this book to discover how your life can be transformed by a world of qualities where the central values are reciprocity, community and the growth of our humanity and compassion.
– Dr Stephan Harding, author of Animate Earth
