In this brilliant and original book, James Wallman explains and analyses why Stuffocation is the most pressing problem of our time - and then goes in search of its solution. On the way, he goes down the halls of the Elysee Palace with Nicolas Sarkozy, up in a helicopter above Barbra Streisand's house on the California coast, and into the world of the original Mad Men. Through fascinating characters and brilliantly told stories, Wallman introduces the innovators whose lifestyles provide clues to how we will all be living tomorrow, and he makes some of the world's most counter-intuitive, radical, and world-changing ideas feel inspiring - and possible for us all.
