Reviews
--Juliet Schor, Professor of Sociology, Boston College; author of "The Overworked American"
--Amitai Etzioni, University Professor, George Washington University and author of "The Monochrome Society"
" Kasser powerfully argues that when we feel more vulnerable, we exhibit more sharply defined materialistic tendencies" -- pwforecasts, "Publishers Weekly"
" An excellent, thorough, insightful examination of object hedonism and its psychological costs. Well-written to boot." --Amitai Etzioni, University Professor, George Washington University and author of "The Monochrome Society"
" Does money buy happiness? For years, social scientists knew relatively little about this important question. Now that has changed. On the basis of more than a decade's worth of original research, Tim Kasser provides a powerful answer--materialism undermines human well-being. "The High Price of Materialism" is a path-breaking work that suggests a fundamental rethinking of our values, behaviors, and economic structures. Deserves the widest possible readership." --Juliet Schor, Professor of Sociology, Boston College; author of "The Overworked American"
