    Society is no longer based on mass consumption but on mass participation.

  • Willpower Is Not Enoughby Arnold M. Washton

    HarperCollins 2013; US$ 12.99

    Many people think that what the addict needs is willpower, but nothing could be further from the truth: When a person has already lost control over a drug or activity, attempts to control its use almost never work. Because the source of addiction isn't the drug or activity itself but a desire for a mood changer, successful recovery means ultimately... more...

  • Nickel and Dimedby Barbara Ehrenreich

    Henry Holt and Co. 2010; US$ 16.99
