Excellent Criticism of Modern Consumer Society, 13 Sept. 2003
Like the title of this review says the book is excellent. It is a critic of modern society but it avoids politicizing the issue and just makes some thoughtful remarks. Don't be mistaken it is critical, but not in the traditional right or left sense. It is more humanist I believe. Anyhow, the book is great and there is a compelling story to keep you interested. It's not all critic. There is a good story in there. If you've read "1984", "Brave New World" or "Fahrenheit 451" this is a logical follow up.
