As 2020 calls on us all to reflect on ourselves - individually, collectively, politically - and define new normals, this simple but important book from 1981 feels like an important tool in the shed. Elgin argues persuasively that we can each make a choice to voluntarily simplify our lives - to push against the mainstream insistence that more and busier is better - and that in doing so, we might both find not just sustainability, but also happiness - by reclaiming more of that most precious resource: time.
