Andrew McAfee's new book, More from Less: How We Learned to Create More Without Using More, delivers a compelling argument - masterfully researched and brilliantly articulated - that despite increasing prosperity for most of Earth's inhabitants and an explosion of goods overall, consumption of natural resources such as metals, water, and timber has begun to decline. McAfee says there's a new reason for optimism: We're past the point of "peak stuff" - from here on out, it'll take fewer resources to make things and fewer dollars to lead a comfortable life. What has made this turnabout possible? Come find out!
