If you have ever thought that living on the edge is the life for you, then you will love reading Living High on a Low Hog by Vincent van Goth. Vincent shares his philosophy of life in this book. Too many people think they can only enjoy life if they are wealthy. Vincent shares his secrets to enjoying life even in poverty. He has a varied life and has lived as a drop-out of society. He has lived free and loose. He has been homeless, yet successful in his endeavors and enjoyment of life. He has learned the secret of contentment. In this book, he shares not only his philosophy but also his principles of living contentedly. He challenges people to learn to live on less and enjoy life more. If your life is not fulfilling, this book will give you a new perspective and way of looking at life.

Vincent van Goth dropped out of the traditional way of life (boring job, high stress, rat-race type existence) for life on the edge. He shows by his examples how it is possible to live a stress-free, enjoyable life of adventure by dropping out of society and living the life of what used to be called a drifter. He has fully developed his philosophy of living high, not on a high hog, but a low hog. This is a simple life freely lived with contentment. The type of life Vincent shares allows you time to enjoy life, help others, and live debt-free. Vincent states that, in his view, there is no objective truth. Living High on a Low Hog teaches that one can do more with less. There is mild swearing in this book.
