Editorial Reviews

Review


I wish I’d read this book when I graduated. I wouldn’t have been less lost, but the beautiful voices, stories and experiences in these pages would have helped me understand that, before I could find myself, I had to lose myself first. If you know someone who dreams of something bigger than being part of the rat race, please give them this book.
---Raj Patel, author of The Value of Nothing

Herein lies the real lesson of the Internet. It may not be the one that marketers and investors want to hear, but it's the key to understanding the way people and businesses will be interacting in the peer-to-peer, digital reality. It's also at the heart of the current renaissance - an overturning of the scarcity-based, highly centralized systems that have been in place since the 1300's, and a rebirth of the values that make human society work.>
---Douglas Rushkoff, author, Program or Be Programmed

If you're a well-meaning, well-educated, generous person, and you can feel yourself being cornered and hammered relentlessly by a faceless, wicked, out-of-control economy, then SHARE OR DIE is the book for you.
---Bruce Sterling, blogger, author and journalist

Smart, funny, irreverent, resourceful, committed, visionary – these terms come to mind as you read the passionate voices of the first net-native generation. Share or Die! not only depicts and explains the daunting challenges facing young people today, it delivers some very good news: A monsoon of creative, positive energies is already shaping a better future.
---David Bollier, scholar and activist of the commons, blogger at Bollier.org, and Cofounder of the Commons Strategies Group

It's a book new grads will want to, and should, read.
David Harrows
To make their way in the world successfully they will need to live more simply, consume less, and learn to share with others for a richer, more sustainable future.
Larry Sleznikow
Many Americans will agree that the old idea that if you work hard you'll get a good job no longer applies to this new generation.

Format: Paperback
This is not easy reading, nor could it be. But it is essential reading. The "Lost Generation", the young folks who should be setting about creating a bright future, tell how it is for them here and now. The stories are all different; this book isn't about pushing an agenda. Rather, it is loaded with ideas that can actually inspire action, offered by those who are living them. The theme is plain: if we do not learn to share this small, damaged, planet with each other, we will die, both physically and spiritually. Simple as that. If having a life worth living, not just surviving, matters to you, you need to read this book. Like it said on the sign at the end of Neville Shute's film about the last days, On the Beach, "There is still time, brother." And sister. But not much.

Young people are now faced with living in a world that has been ravaged by decades of thoughtless greed without a concern about those who would inherit the mess. To make their way in the world successfully they will need to live more simply, consume less, and learn to share with others for a richer, more sustainable future. Share or Die: Voices of the Get Lost Generation in the Age of Crisis is a diverse and thought-provoking collection of writings and cartoons that looks at a new approach to living and working. It touches on everything from how to approach finding a job with a meaningful work-life balance to collective living arrangements for a nomadic lifestyle; establishing resilient communities that require owning less stuff to eating economically with purpose as a DIY adventure. Although aimed at young people, we all can learn a great deal from the stories that are shared in this book.

Forget the traditional Dr. Seuss "Oh the Places you will go". Whether for those heading off to college, grad school, or the real world, Share or Die provides a much hipper graduation gift. Created by young people for young people, the volume provides a series of well-written essays describing a shared experience of entering a world much different from their parents. It's a book new grads will want to, and should, read.

Format: Paperback
Many Americans will agree that the old idea that if you work hard you'll get a good job no longer applies to this new generation. As a high school teacher specializing in alternative education for at risk youth, I have struggled to inspire youth in a time when our failing economy poses little to no hope for a prosperous future. It's hard to talk about a future where anything is possible when the status quo paradigm does not work.

Share or Die is a gem because it solves this problem for me. It explains through analysis and personal narrative why the old story doesn't work any more, and paints a picture of an even better tomorrow if we do things together instead of alone. Share or Die reframes what we need to teach our youth about how to create their own prosperous future by sharing.

Beth Buczynski sums this notion up perfectly in her essay, "The Gen Y Guide to Collaborative Consumption". She describes the old formula of get college degree, get a good job as the "old way" and offers an eye-opening array of resources to help people meet their needs through sharing.

Share or Die is brilliant in many ways. In reading this book, I discovered a new way to inspire the youth I teach. I learned about many resources that make living one's dream a true possibility. Most importantly, I learned that we can evolve if we create a new economic paradigm based on sharing. If you're an educator, a student, a parent, or a human being living in these challenging times, Share or Die is a must read as it holds a practical and inspiring new formula for the good life.
