We're all stuffocated. We have more stuff than we could ever need - but it's bad for the planet and it's making us stressed. It might even be killing us.

In this groundbreaking book, trend forecaster James Wallman finds that a rising number of people are turning away from all-you-can-get consumption, from the exec who's sold almost everything he owns, to the well-off family who moved to a remote mountain cabin.

Recenzii

a blueprint for future living
Fascinating, inspiring, and great fun to read
Particularly timely ... [Wallman] is spot on
Persuasive... clever
With a sociologist's eye and a storyteller's ear, James Wallman takes us on a tour... he identifies the rise of a new value system among those who are consciously replacing materialism with what he rightly calls experientialism. Spot on
Amazing, brilliant, incredible ... It's going to change my life. Buy this book and give 10 others away
James Wallman has engagingly woven a mix of true-life stories to demonstrate why our materialistic society no longer makes us happy and what we can do about it. This is written with warmth and wit. The surprise is that Wallman's glimpses of the future also illuminate, with rare insight, the difficult process of culture change
Mixes personal and social commentary with a sympathetic understanding of where excessive consumerism comes from, and also has really good recommendations on what to do about it. An original, provocative mixture
An exhilarating ghost train ride through the madness of over-consumption, during which we are taunted by our own greed. Fortunately, there is light at the end of the tunnel - and James Wallman takes us there
It will definitely change your life and could change the world
Stuffocation will take you on the journey of your life. As Wallman builds his case, the true value of experience emerges and resonates .... I'll venture that no one goes unchanged by this book
What Malcom Gladwell did for psychology inBlink, James Wallman does for the fascinating world of trend forecasting inStuffocation. Backed with quirky stories and compelling examples that are a joy to read, Wallman lifts the veil on why we live the way we do today... and why our obsession with 'stuff' may be about to change. You'll never look at a visit to the shops in the same way again. A gem
Wallman perceives a new flowering of resistance to the siren lure of physical commodoties
Sounds tempting, doesn't it? Achieving happiness through consciously chucking out or flogging off what we no longer need ... If I can purge my wardrobe of half its contents, then I will be happier, just as Mr Wallman predicts
Clearly argued and contains plenty of interesting case studies
Compelling
Incisive, passionate, persuasive ... Wallman writes in an engaging, fluid style
a blueprint for future living

Descriere

We're all stuffocated. We have more stuff than we could ever need - but it's bad for the planet and it's making us stressed. It might even be killing us.

In this groundbreaking book, trend forecaster James Wallman finds that a rising number of people are turning away from all-you-can-get consumption, from the exec who's sold almost everything he owns, to the well-off family who moved to a remote mountain cabin.

In Stuffocation, Wallman's solution is to focus less on possessions and more on experiences. It is a manifesto for a vital change in how you live - and it's the one book you won't be able to live without.
