The Hunger for More PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Hunger for More free pdf In the lyrical yet tough-minded tradition of Thoreau, this prescient and impassioned volume, written by a former Ethics columnist for Esquire magazine, examines the myths and follies of a culture that celebrates greed and defines success solely in terms of wealth. As timely today as it was upon its original release in 1989, the book examines the corrosive effects of money-worship on the social fabric and warns of the consequences of pursuing a lifestyle rather than building a life. Written in a lively, journalistic style, and filled with telling observations, the volume takes an unsparing look at the world as it is---and also points the way toward the more humane and fulfilling world that is in our power to create. Said The New York Times, "Shames' critique is on the mark...concrete, compelling reading." "A scathing indictment of the excesses of our time as well as a prophecy of changes ahead."-Atlanta Journal-Constitution
