We know that our current high levels of materialism are having a huge impact on the planet but we continue to produce and consume more than we could ever possibly need, use or enjoy. It is time we put an end to our senseless greed and return to the idea of everything in moderation. This can only be done, author John Naish argues, if we first develop a cultural sense of contentment within ourselves, gaining satisfaction from what we already have rather than continuing to strive for more.
His brand new book, Enough: Breaking Free from the World of More, offers us the opportunity to reflect on our consumerist culture and think carefully about what we really want from our lives.
In the quest to break free of this crazy cycle’, we need to take responsibility for creating a more sustainable future. John Naish, however, admits to not having all the answers. His wry, warm and witty approach raises many important issues in a thought-provoking manner.
