Summary
"'We seem to have forgotten what life is about.' So begins this heartfelt, laugh-out-loud follow-up to Máté's cult classic, A reasonable life. He warns us that, lulled by electronic pacifiers and hypnotized by sublime greed, we are sinking into a perpetual stupor: physically inert, intellectually blinkered, and devoid of deep emotion. Our unquestioned obsession with goods and gadgets has displaced true and lasting joys like our health, creativity, fulfillment, and, most importantly, our time spent with one another."--Jacket
