Sustainable Lifestyles and the Quest for Plentitude: Case Studies of the New Economy is extremely interesting and useful in stretching our minds beyond modern assumptions of reliance on capitalism. However, it is also quite verbose, no fun to read and difficult to digest. One of my favorite topics was that of Chicago’s Experiment Station. Due to language I felt this and other issues come across as overly complex – to be understood and dealt with by trained social scientists only. I believe there is a way to include the greater public in the conversation, and books such as this one isolate a very interesting and crucial discussion to the academic world.
