A Life Stripped Bare: My Year Trying to Live Ethically

Leo Hickman is a journalist at the Guardian, where he undertook an extended experiment in ethical living. This book is the result. I picked it up in a bookstore in Birmingham and finished it just after I returned home to Boston.

I had seen it in passing in a bookstore in London, and when I decided I’d look for it in B’ham, I went up to a clerk and said I was looking for a book with “naked” in the title and “a year of living ethically” in the subtitle. He eventually found it for me!

It’s a good book, and it raises some real questions, but it also shows its roots as a series of newspaper features.
