What do Americans need that most eludes them? It's not a tank of cheap gas (as astonishing as that would be) or ever earlier pre-holiday sales. What Americans need most - and most of them know it - is satisfaction, especially the satisfaction of enough.

So when the call for submissions to this book went out, the mainstream response was enthusiastic. From the outpouring of personal stories submitted, the editorial committee chose these twenty to represent the broadest possible spectrum of Americans who have sought and found a simpler, more satisfying life.

From the Publisher:

Ed Begley, Jr., actor and activist "Judging from the flood of public responses to the call for satisfying stories, people want fulfillment and sufficiency. What a relief for our maxed-out lives and for our maxed-out planet! Everybody finds the satisfaction of enough in different ways and this book shines a light forward on many of them. I'm glad I'm satisfied. You will be too."

Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy: The Wealth of Communities and the Durable Future  "This is the book we really need, the one that cuts to the core: firsthand stories of truly satisfied people."

Cecile Andrews, author of Slow is Beautiful: New Visions of Community, Leisure and Joie de Vivre  "It's exhilarating to hear real stories from real people showing us fulfilling, satisfying ways to live."

Wanda Urbanska, host and coproducer of the Simple Living with Wanda Urbanska public television series  "This book is a watershed in America's quest for national and planetary sanity."

Sarah Susanka, author of The Not So Big Life: Making Room for What Really Matters  "Get Satisfied is a wonderful antidote to our over-stuffed and over-rushed world... we are given insight after insight into what really makes life satisfying and complete. It may not be a simpler life, though sometimes it is, but it is certainly a life in which the delight of being fully alive permeates every day and every breath."

From the Back Cover:

Recycle all those other self-help books -- this is the only one you will need. The secret to a true, deep happiness can be found in these beautifully personal stories from ordinary Americans. I was genuinely inspired after reading this book. "GET SATISFIED: How Twenty People Like You Found the Satisfaction of Enough" will help you find joy in a place that you might have forgotten to look: your own life.

ALEXANDRA PAUL

Actor and Activist
