This book is a comprehensive look at what the 2010s might look like in terms of exchange. Rethink capitalism, rethink your relation to objects and discover how using might be more important than owning. It is very well written and documented and it should hit the shelves of all people interested in a realistic amelioration of our society. Issues of liberty, ownership, identity and social contract are dealt with in such a new way. Read it and share it!

One of the best books I have read in a while. Extremely accurate and well researched and written in a way that is accessible to the general public.
