The progress paradox: How Life Gets Better While People Feel Worse – Book Review

THE PROGRESS PARADOX: How Life Gets Better While People Feel Worse By Gregg Easterbrook (Random House)

Hard-won blessings of the 21st century–prosperity, medicine, greater justice, nice stuff–have turned us into griping mal-contents, Easterbrook argues. What’s our problem? Our lives are disconnected and meaningless. This lively treatise recommends old-fashioned solutions: global altruism, gratitude and forgiveness.
