    1. This includes many of his works including Civil Disobedience, Walking, and Walden, three of my favorites. If you aren't familiar with Civil Disobedience it is the standard for living by one's individual ethics regardless of the positions of the state. Most people are familiar with at least segments of Walden, but I urge everyone to read all of this experiment to live a simple life without the meaningless trappings of society honest and detailed account full of beautiful descriptions of his life [...]

    2. I read Walden as college student and thought, "This is ME!!!" I agreed with everything. I read Walden as a young mother and thought, "Now wait a minute. He's awfully quick to condemn the homesteaders with a lot of stress and strain on their budgets. I don't think I like him."I read Walden as an empty nester and thought, "He has a lot to learn about real life, but I like him and agree with much of it. This is me."

It was interesting to read Thoreau's thoughts on nature and life in general.

The simplicity of life is front and center here as are laments of a changing society becoming a slave to technology and creature comforts. It's easy to see the parallels to today.I'm not planning on giving up my flat-screen HDTV or my hig [...]

    5. Eremetic notions have long caused me to be a fan of Thoreau's writings. Last year, I began delving into philosophy and most recently political philosophy and theory. When I found out Thoreau was an anarchist, I decided to revisit him. His words resonated on a deeper level this go 'round.

    6. I read this when I was eighteen, right before college. It was life changing. A man who becomes one with nature, and not a lonely hermit.

    7. Not CompleteThis book is not complete by any means. The complete journals are not here so buyer beware! There are better deals elsewhere.
