Waking us up from the American Dream,
This review is from: Shiny Objects: Why We Spend Money We Don't Have in Search of Happiness We Can't Buy (Hardcover)
Dr. Roberts takes us on a great journey through our love affair with consumption
and its history as well as its failings in this easy to read book. Great passages
on our political history with the American Dream including an enlightening discussion
on FDR's Four Freedoms that we can all stand to re-examine in today's world.
The book also has helpful, practical information on how to change our financial footings
for the better if we find ourselves overwhelmed.
