Thanks for having me, and fire away with the questions. One clarification: I am not the man who quit money. I'm just the guy who wrote a book about him. The subject of the book is Daniel Suelo who has gone moneyless for 12 years now.

I read the book a year ago. Excellent work Mark. I enjoyed it. Also, The Moneyless Man is a good book. They really encouraged me to be frugal and self sustaining.

I'm looking forward to reading your book. I checked it out of the library on my eReader.

Thank you!

So I ran the winner picker app in the forum software and the two winners were on the daily-ish email... Yay!

Xisca Nicolas
and
allen lumley

Congratulations Xisca and Allen!

I sent you an email to ask for the email address of the person that first referred you to Permies.com. That person (if qualified) will also get a copy of the book.
