Though this book had great tone, and I loved the humor and the familial details, I couldn’t ignore the simple facts. The family was not sacrificing a lot and was just moving around the corner. Though they talk about how much they want to give up, they wrangle down the price of their new home instead of buying a cheaper one. Finally they do a TV feature and write a book even though they “don’t want publicity.” Overall this book just annoyed me.
