Description
"For many of us, our possessions and the lifestyle that goes along with them are causing more stress than happiness--otherwise known as 'keeping up with the Joneses' or what Alain de Botton calls 'status anxiety.' But James Wallman argues that we are approaching a tipping point with regard to materialism. People are turning away from the endless drive to consume in favor of a simpler, more streamlined way of living ... He interviews anthropologists studying the 21st century clutter crisis, consults with scientists who have linked 'stuffocation' to rising cortisol levels and declining psychological well-being, and introduces us to the innovators who are already choosing 'experience' over 'stuff'"--
