"Affluenza" should make us all realise that material possessions are never enough to satisfy spiritual hunger. The authors of "Affluenza" challenge us to think beyond the superficiality of individual economic demand to the deeper meaning of life." - Bill Bradley, former United States Senator and Presidential Candidate. The first edition was a bestseller (more than 75,000 copies sold) that inspired a movement; now heavily revised, the second edition addresses today's "affluenza" with a new urgency, but also hope for recovery. Based on two highly acclaimed PBS documentaries, "Affluenza" uses the metaphor of a disease to tackle a very serious subject: the damage done to our health, our families, our communities, and our environment, by the obsessive quest for material gain. With a new introduction and updated figures all throughout, this revised edition ups the ante for the continuing war we must wage against consumerism nationwide.Über den Autor:
