Description - Stuffocation by James Wallman

Stuffocation is a manifesto for a vital change in how we live. It's the one important book you won't be able to live without.

We're all stuffocated. We have more stuff than we could ever need - clothes we don't wear, kit we don't use, toys we don't play with.

But having everything isn't making us happier. It's bad for the planet. It's cluttering up our homes. It's making us stressed - and it might even be killing us.

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

Wallman's solution to our stuffocation crisis is less extreme, but equally fundamental. We have to transform what we value. We have to focus less on possessions and more onexperiences. Rather than a new watch, or another pair of socks or shoes, we should invest in shared experiences like holidays, festivals and time with friends.

Stuffocation is a manifesto for a vital change in how we live. It's the one important book you won't be able to live without.
