Just finished a book I've been reading called ENOUGH: Breaking Free From the World of Excess. This guy, John Naish, from the UK wrote about how humanity has become obsessed with overindulgence. It was a good read despite the fact that it made me feel like a horrible human being. I would recommend it if you feel like going on a guilt trip. In all seriousness, I really did enjoy it and found it rather informative.

He divides his book into 8 chapters:
1. ENOUGH information
2. ENOUGH food
3. ENOUGH stuff
4. ENOUGH work
5. ENOUGH options
6. ENOUGH happiness
7. ENOUGH growth
8. Never-enoughs.
"Everyday life is accelerating ever faster. We work more quickly, talk more quickly, walk more quickly, read more quickly, feed more quickly, and now, thanks to rapid rehab, we can sin, repent and reinvent ourselves as born-again consumers more quickly too. We feel compelled to rush ever onwards - but towards what?"

  1. I'm intrigued! It sounds really interesting.

    p.s. I love the Sylvia Plath quote along the side :)
