I m passionate about frugality but this book gives no concrete suggestion as to how to inch toward it in life or business The main theme of this book is an obvious one that is generally overlooked the larger the organization the it is passed over It is all about waste that can be eliminated with no negative conseuences and lower costs with increased profits Despite the new sources of fossil fuels that are being opened p there is still a limit to how much can new sources of fossil fuels that are

review Doing More with Less The New Way to WealthOme of those tactics improve the work environment as well The two forces of a rising population and diminishing resources will force organizations to reduce their levels of consumption and doing so is some of the best public and community relations actions that can be done Therefore Piasecki s point is one of the first that needs to be made about the future success of business the raising of awareness Further as he states so clearly the savings compound in two ways The money saved now can be considered to be earning interest in the future and the frugal mindset leads to an active search for further savings Some executives nderstand this and have reaped benefits while others have not and may and have reaped benefits while others have not and may their organizations sueezed in the future This book was made available for free for review purposes and this review appears on Noteswritten to business owners not everyday joesgood info I guess but not for me The author has a great point to make but the delivery was hard to follow I hate when an author refers to something he s going to tell you later in the book His premise is to live frugal like Benjamin Franklin Might be better just to read the works of Franklin if that s a philosophy you value This book was weird The main point seemed to be that being frugal and not wasting anything time money choosing the right people etc will make a business competitive T GRAIN OF SALT ALERT I did not finish or even barely start this book I found the first chapter completely incomprehensible It was a bunch of businessy gibberish through which the twin themes of doomsday panic and greed were barely nderstandable This was a book recommended by NPR so I thought I would give it a try based on that recommendation It was disappointing Much
