    Synopsis

    James Wallman explains and analyses why 'stuffocation' is the most pressing problem of our time - and then goes in search of its solution. On the way, he goes down the halls of the Elysee Palace with Nicolas Sarkozy, up in a helicopter above Barbra Streisand's house on the California coast, and into the world of the original Mad Men.

      Amazing, brilliant, incredible ... It's going to change my life. Buy this book and give 10 others away BBC Radio 2 The Chris Evans Breakfast Show - Chris Evans It will definitely change your life and could change the world Chris Evans Fascinating, inspiring, and great fun to read Sunday Times Persuasive... clever Financial Times With a sociologist's eye and a storyteller's ear, James Wallman takes us on a tour... he identifies the rise of a new value system among those who are consciously replacing materialism with what he rightly calls experientialism. Spot on B. Joseph Pine II and James H. Gilmore, authors, The Experience Economy James Wallman has engagingly woven a mix of true-life stories to demonstrate why our materialistic society no longer makes us happy and what we can do about it. This is written with warmth and wit. The surprise is that Wallman's glimpses of the future also illuminate, with rare insight, the difficult process of culture change Caroline van den Brul MBE, author, Crackle and Fizz Mixes personal and social commentary with a sympathetic understanding of where excessive consumerism comes from, and also has really good recommendations on what to do about it. An original, provocative mixture Peter N Stearns, provost, George Mason University An exhilarating ghost train ride through the madness of over-consumption, during which we are taunted by our own greed. Fortunately, there is light at the end of the tunnel - and James Wallman takes us there Mark Tungate, author, Adland: A Global History of Advertising Stuffocation will take you on the journey of your life. As Wallman builds his case, the true value of experience emerges and resonates .... I'll venture that no one goes unchanged by this book Jeanne E Arnold, professor, department of anthropology, UCLA What Malcom Gladwell did for psychology in Blink , James Wallman does for the fascinating world of trend forecasting in Stuffocation . Backed with quirky stories and compelling examples that are a joy to read, Wallman lifts the veil on why we live the way we do today... and why our obsession with 'stuff' may be about to change. You'll never look at a visit to the shops in the same way again. A gem Marianne Cantwell, author, Be a Free-Range Human Particularly timely ... [Wallman] is spot on Daily Mail Experientialism, as Wallman calls it, will define our future just as materialism has shaped our present Observer Wallman perceives a new flowering of resistance to the siren lure of physical commodoties Guardian Sounds tempting, doesn't it? Achieving happiness through consciously chucking out or flogging off what we no longer need ... If I can purge my wardrobe of half its contents, then I will be happier, just as Mr Wallman predicts Daily Mail - Janet Street-Porter Clearly argued and contains plenty of interesting case studies Independent on Sunday Compelling Daily Telegraph Incisive, passionate, persuasive ... Wallman writes in an engaging, fluid style The Sunday Business Post a blueprint for future living Daily Telegraph
