Ryan, Durning's book: Stuff: The Secret Lives of Everday Things

Scary Stuff. This not a new book. But all the more important because of that. It amply demonstrates just how aware we need to be, as 'consumers'. Following a day-in-the-life of fictional North American, it peels away the veil of hidden impact in daily use products. Only 88 pages it is a lightweight tome but the message is very much more substantial. Eye opening revelations. Buy at Amazon (try second hand option!) or check your local library. $10 ::Amazon [by WM]
