"Share or Die" Gives Voice to Youth in Recession

From tool libraries to car clubs, much has been written about the rise in collaborative consumption. But, for many people, particularly young people struggling with a major economic meltdown, this is about much more than a new way of consuming things—it's about a new way to relate to each other and forge a new future.

Available, appropriately enough, as either a free e-book, or for $15 as a PDF version, this looks set to be an important missive on the value of doing things differently.
