The Man Who Quit Money


Don't be afraid of this book! It's not a judgemental, do-as-I-do morality shakedown. It's really a lovely story about a man who struggled to find his own path in life, and along the way we get to open our minds a bit about money, debt, the "American dream," religion, sexuality and other pertinent issues. This story has had remarkable staying power since its initial publication in March of this year. Two weeks ago there was a resurgence of interest when David Suelo was featured in an ABC News report. The reactions to his story are fascinating, veering from admiration and sympathy to overt hostility and accusations of "freeloading" and "mooching." It's pretty interesting to read the comment section of just about any online story relating to the book and its protagonist.

I became aware of the book a month ago after seeing a lot of references to it on the blogs I frequent. I was amazed that there was no audio, so I recommended it to one of my clients, who promptly picked up the rights, and we all set to work on it. It should be appearing on Audible within the next couple of weeks.

  3. I'm a huge fan of Grover, and a complete Audible addict. Though there are many great narrators at Audible, Grover is my top choice. In fact, I will take a chance on a book that I normally might not be interested in simply because Grover is the narrator. You sir, are at the top of your profession, and have given me hours upon hours of listening enjoyment. I have to say, that your reading of the Third Reich has no equal, and I doubt ever will. Thanks man!
