Synopsis: The sequel to The Limits of Growth illustrates the state of the world's population, non-renewable resource use, industrial output, food production, and pollution, arguing that humans are using resources and producing waste at unsustainable rates.
Review: Helen and Scott Nearing wrote Living the Good Life and many other best-selling books about working hard, living simply and self-sufficiently while saving time for fun and pursuits of the intellect. This is a book written by Helen after Scott died (at 100 years old!), and is a story of love and living and dying on one's own terms, at peace with the world and with one's own heart. Inspiring and moving, this is a "how-to" book about facing life with delight and with eyes open.
