|This book was really interesting.it talks about how our society is so consumed by the materialistic world. How when something new comes up we say we want it, we dont care what it cost but we want it. Adults are teaching their kids that when they want something they can have it. the old fashion family hangout has gone from a day at the park to a day in the house watching a movie with the kids texting or listening to there ipods. Most of us havent even noticed but when we go out all we do is pop in those earphones and isolate our selfes ffrom the real world. Benjami Barber talks about hom capitalism has changed over time, its turned out to be a pervertion to our society. he uses alots of facts to show how it hurst our democracy also. I would rate it a thre only because i didnt like reading all the facts he had. other than that id defenitly recommend it .
