One of the Top Ten American Classics (in my opinion) in league with Twain, Hemmingway, et al. Simplify, simplify. We are still leading lives of "Quiet Desperation" and that means Henry has ideas you can apply today. Henry writes of living in a shack beside a beautiful lake. He did not have even a "Condo" on the but a shack. Why, oh why, is it considered a great thing to chop down wild things and build Condos and stuff ... This and other questions are posed in Walden. You can study the writing style. I have. He writes like a rock falling from your hand. You can dip into the book at random and just ponder a sentence or paragraph. A great book by any measure, and, like I say, his ideas can be applied today.
