Everything said is pretty much fact. We are living in a too-fast, too-full, too-horrible world and we need to slow down before we kill ourselves. We don't need a book to know this, we already know. Perhaps some need a book to have it drilled in to them, or they don't quite understand until someone will a prefix to their name says something about it. It is the same with everything: we are just too lazy, too secure in our capitalist, consumerist world to really, really care. As long as we have the new iPhone, we care about nothing else. One book will not help that.
