The author is a former senior social scientist at the Stanford Research Institute. George Leonard, author of the Transformation said, "A copy of this book in every American household could change the course of history..Voluntary Simplicity shows that what this nation needs is not so much a change of policy as a change of mind, and that individual citizens, acting on their own, can do more to solve our crises than can any national administration. A simplicity survey is included, along with chapter notes. This work is well-indexed.
