Testimonials


"I wanted to let you know how much Debbie and I enjoyed reading your book and learning about all the facets of your life that brought you to where you are today. I was struck by your resiliency in being able to manage so many life changes while still persevering in your efforts to live a minimalist and ecologically responsible lifestyle. Your ability to adapt your skills to such a wide variety of employment options and living situtaions is, I think, indicative of the special quality you have of " thinking outside the box." I was also moved by your unflagging efforts to achieve a convergence between your lifestyle, job, place of residence and spouse, as your life moved forward, with all the attendant bumps in the road. Your story is a thought provoking and moving piece of work, especially for those of us who came from the same era."

Harold Slater, Ph.D, Psychologist, Southern California

"Being different and making and difference is what the 60's were all about. Bill Seavey is one of the few who stayed the course--through all the later years of fresh insight and new challenge, heartbreaking failures, and uplifting successes. Every day of his account is a readable adventure. You can't help but enjoy this roller-coaster account of a late 20th century life!"

Irv Thomas, Editor, Ripening Seasons Journal, and author of Innocence Abroad

"Even though each generation must find its own way through the times fate assigns it, each generation can also benefit from the lessons learned by previous generations. Bill Seavey tells us what he has learned as an early Boomer and doesn't take the boring know-it-all approach {"When I was your age, blah, blah, blah). And he demonstrates that he too is still learning after all these years."

Larry Roth, author of Beating the System, Political Frugality and The Simple Life

"You have certainly led an interesting, hectic, colorful and essentially reflective life--so far! You're obviously a fine writer with plenty to say on a variety of topics."

Larry Wonderling, Ph.D., author of Seductive Illusions

"In his 'Confessions from Generation Woodstock,' William Seavey has illustrated the struggles of a baby boomer living in the United States after the World, Korean and Vietnam wars. Although you may disagree with some of his political ideas, his views on life in general and advice for future generations offer fruit for thought not only on the survival of this country but the world in general."

Harold Hanson, a member of the "Silent Generation" and Seavey family biographer (the Seaveys arrived in New England in 1632 in the very first major wave of immigrants to the colonies).
