There is no one like Schumacher around today. We have very few sages and even fewer saints to help us. It is true that we have moved on a lot from the often simplistic thinking of the early 1970s. In other ways, however, we seem to have made little progress. But Schumacher's wisdom and spiritual insights live on in the work of the Schumacher Society, through the pages of Resurgence and in this fascinating collection of essays. --Jonathon Porritt
About the Author
E.F. Schumacher was an economist and practical philosopher whose ideas have been influential in shaping the modern environmental movement. He founded the Intermediate Technology Development Group (now called Practical Action) and was Chairman of the Soil Association in its early days. His achievements and influence are commemorated in the names of organisations which include the Schumacher Society (UK), Schumacher College in Dartington and the E.F. Schumacher Society in the USA.

Whether you agree with Schumacher's points of view or not, you will find his work thought provoking.
My problem with this volume is that it adds little, or nothing, to that masterpiece. Most of the articles here here are either earlier versions of, or (e.g. the famous one on Buddhist Economics)the same as ones in the more famous work. There are a couple of new articles that are interest like the one that this volume takes its title from. But they are few.
Readers who already have read "Small Is Beautiful" would be better served revisiting that volume. Those who have not, will find the same ideas here. But I'd still point them there. Sadly, this volume for me is a write off.

Schumacher, in easy to understand terms, explains the role of size in creating businesses with integrity, imagination and success..It helps in understanding a Big Box culture.
