Overview

Filled with compelling personal stories of true satisfaction, Get Satisfied: How Twenty People Like You Found the Satisfaction of Enough has been reissued in December 2009 by Easton Studio Press for Postconsumers. The talented authors are eleven women and nine men all across the country in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s. They are everyday people who prove that each path to the satisfaction of enough is unique and that everyone has a different take on what’s right at any particular time. Whether they’ve chosen to be satisfied with a little or a lot, they are all wealthy in their contentment.

A prominent scientist has written the foreword to the book and given it serious weight. Peter C. Whybrow, M.D. is Director of the Semel Institute for Neuroscience & Human Behavior at UCLA and author of American Mania: When More Is Not Enough. Carol Holst, founder of Postconsumers, has written the introduction to the book. The Simple Living Network has compiled the extensive bibliography.

Best of all, when the call for submissions to this book went out, the mainstream response was beyond enthusiastic. From the outpouring of personal stories submitted, the editorial committee chose these twenty to represent the broadest possible spectrum of Americans who have sought and found a simpler, more satisfying life. Now you can also enjoy our companion "how to" interactive web module! Have fun soon with Get Satisfied: How to Find the Satisfaction of Enough, produced in cooperation with the Semel Institute for Neuroscience & Human Behavior at UCLA.
