  • LIVING ROOM REVOLUTION

    Every man for himself! For too long we have lived in a competitive, consumer-oriented culture, destroying the well-being of people and the planet. We believe that money brings happiness, yet all too often, the opposite is true. The pursuit of wealth at any cost corrupts our values and diminishes our lives. The resulting inequality breaks down social cohesion and generates envy, bitterness and resentment. Greed breeds more greed.

    In Living Room Revolution, Cecile Andrews refutes the notion that selfishness is at the root of human nature. Research shows that people - given the right circumstances - can be caring, nurturing and collaborative. Presented with the opportunity, they gravitate toward actions and policies embodying empathy, fairness and trust instead of competition, fear and greed. The regeneration of social ties and the sense of caring and purpose that comes from creating community drive this essential transformation.

    At the heart of this movement is the ancient art of conversation. Living Room Revolution provides a practical toolkit of concrete strategies to facilitate personal and social change by bringing people together in community and conversation.

    The heart of happiness is joining with others in good talk and laughter. Each person can make a difference, and it can all start in your own living room!

  • MAKING HOME

    Other books tell us how to live the good life … but you might have to win the lottery to do it. Making Home is about improving life with the real people around us and the resources we already have. While encouraging us to be more resilient in the face of hard times, author Sharon Astyk also points out the beauty, grace and elegance that result, because getting the most out of everything we use is a way of transforming our lives into something much more fulfilling.

    Written from the perspective of a family who has already made this transition, Making Home shows readers how to turn the challenge of living with less into settling for more: more happiness, more security and more peace of mind. Learn simple but effective strategies to:

    • Save money on everything from heating and cooling to refrigeration, laundry, water, sanitation, cooking and cleaning
    • Create a stronger, more resilient family
    • Preserve more for future generations


    We must make fundamental changes to our way of life in the face of ongoing economic crises and energy depletion. Making Home takes the fear out of this prospect, and invites us to embrace a simpler, more abundant reality.
