There are so many reasons I love this book. Its fair, its enlightening, its wise, its well written, its full of documented facts that make me a wiser person, caring person, happier person. In the introduction she notes, '1. I'm not against Stuff. In fact I'm pro-Stuff! I want us to value our Stuff more, to care for it, to give it the respect it deserves. I want us to recognize that each thing we buy involved all sorts of resources and labor. Someone minded the earth for the metals in your cell phone; someone unloaded the bales from the cotton gin for your T-shirt. Someone in a factory assembled that pair of sunglasses, and they might have been exposed to carcinogens or forced to work over-time.'
