Probably my most favourite book is "An Island to Oneself" by Tom Neale.

I even visited the Cook Islands because of it. You get a real sense of how wonderful the simple life is without all the complexity of modern life.

It's a good read, but it didn't really make me think how wonderful it was, though it does have its upsides.


Be careful with that last word, it could get you on a terror watch list :-P
