The Story of Stuff: How Our Obsession with Stuff is Trashing the Planet, Our Communities, and Our Health - and a Vision for Change
The Story of Stuff: How Our Obsession with Stuff is Trashing the Planet, Our Communities, and Our Health - and a Vision for Change
by Annie Leonard
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensational, 4 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Annie Leonard's "The Story Of Stuff" is an entertaining, informative and thought-provoking book. It makes you realise how much crap we have that we don't need and how much the crap we do have is harming our communities, health and the environment. Thought a cotton T-shirt was the healthy, eco-friendly option... think again. Even as I write I am being poisoned by toxins such as Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers used to prevent my laptop from spontaneously combusting (Pages 76,92). It shows how much our lives have changed in the past century with all these new compounds like PVC and polyester and how much damage these changes have done, are doing and will do with continued use. It's difficult to avoid this you might say but Annie Leonard offers tips on how to make your stuff, your home and your community safer for you and yours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unreal!, 17 April 2012

The explosive conclusion to the world's best-selling game franchise (within a franchise that is)! Soap and Price return to deliver Makarov his just desserts along with a host of new characters and new locations. The lack of driving in the series (I love a good driving game) is soon forgotten by the high octance action that takes place from Berlin to London to Somalia and Sierra Leone to the streets of New York. One of the best games ever!

Another great read from Messrs Mitchinson and Lloyd. If you think you know animals, get ready to be amazed at some of the ignorance you hold in your head. This book is the nearest thing to owning your very own David Attenborough.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not For Beginners, 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good book to begin with, but very quickly the author becomes embroiled in very professional economic language which most laypeople will struggle to understand. Also Soros could be seen to talk too much about his own investments than about a real solution to the current economic crisis.

This review is from: Inside Job [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
I couldn't believe it when I saw it first, how the corporate few having raided our pockets for all we're worth. This movie will make you seeth with anger. The sondtrack is spot on, if this is business, they took care of it alright. A must-see documentary. Don't let the fancy terminology sometimes used fool you, the fact that they got away with it is enough for most, it's just there to show you how they did it, how they took all the pie and left everyone else with nothing. Compelling!

A magnificent spectacle of how we have conquered this planet to make a life for ourselves anywhere and everywhere. This shows us at are most cunning. This is a story of how we became the dominant species on our planet. Don't get too carried away with any sense of power, just sit back and watch how magnificent a world with humans can be. Narrated with gusto from Bafta winner John Hurt.

You won't believe what stuff has been going on in the financial world when you see this movie. It's unbelieveable that these "people" for want of a better word got away with all of this. A compelling, must-see documentary for anyone and everyone. Moore displays the fallout of the 2008 crash with horrific truth. Companies making money off dead workers, being made work double the time for half the pay, selling Florida condo's for 25 cents on the dollar, and how great America really is... you don't want to miss this, believe me. Find out how capitalism rules and democracy drools in this fantastic investigation into the workings of our globalised, finacial world.
