New book is out! All about Less Is More...
My new book, co-edited with Wanda Urbanska, is now in bookstores and on Amazon.com. As always, we'd prefer you buy from a local independent bookstore.
Less Is More: Embracing Simplicity for a Healthy Planet, A Caring Economy and Lasting Happiness is a compilation of essays from the leading thinkers of Simplicity and Sustainability for our time, including Bill McKibben, Juliet Schor, Duane Elgin, John de Graaf, Theodore Roszak, David Korten, Jay Walljasper, Sarah Susanka, Bryan Welch and Ernest Callenbach (remember him from Ecotopia days?). It was an amazing experience to work with these brilliant author-philosophers and we feel privileged to be able to bring you their work.
We'll be doing readings on both coasts and I'll try to keep a calendar on this blog of upcoming events. For now, here's some early reviews and comments on Less Is More.
Winston-Salem Journal: "Here is a book with its roots in the earth that can move you to new places, stimulate ideas and encourage change..." Full review here.
