In every facet of postindustrial society – the way we eat, the way we communicate and entertain, the way we work, the way we court lovers and raise children, educate and govern – technology and affluence has let us reach our goals with a speed and efficiency unimaginable even a generation ago. But the result is not all milk and honey. The costs of living this way are substantial: financial volatility, health epidemics, environmental exhaustion and political paralysis, to say nothing of a growing, gnawing dissatisfaction. Here, Paul Roberts traces the roots of this problem, damningly revealing how it has permeated society, and cogently argues how it may, perhaps, still be reversed.
