This Restless Life

Churning Through Love, Work and Travel
A non fiction book by

This powerful examination of the effects of hyperconsumerism on contemporary life provides a comprehensive look at how choices affect the balance between work and life in society. Using past experiences, the author explores issues that concern many today--a generation sacrificing depth for breadth--and asks the question, "Is it possible to have too much choice?" With detail and insight, the guide analyzes a world full of information at the click of a search engine, where libraries are unused, travelers see the world but never speak another language, and employees work on short-term contracts never knowing their colleagues. Passionate and powerful, this is a gripping combination of memoir and social critique, looking without blame at the effects of hypercapitalism on Generation Y.
