Reviews

  • Jason is able to personalise the global and swarm the mind with ideas ... Heed his beautifully rendered warning.

    Russell Brand
  • A powerfully disruptive book for disrupted times. Jason Hickel takes all we've been been told about growth and development and turns it inside out, offering instead a radically possible vision of a post-growth future. If you're looking for transformative ideas, this book is for you.

    Kate Raworth, economist and author of Doughnut Economics
  • Eye-opening and passionate, Jason Hickel shows how the insatiable drive to increase GDP has caused the ecological crisis, reveals the historical and colonial roots of capitalism and argues that an ecologically sensitive economic based on 'degrowth' is essential for us to flourish.

    New Scientist
  • A masterpiece... Less is More covers centuries and continents, spans academic disciplines, and connects contemporary and ancient events in a way which cannot be put down until it's finished. So much needs to change; although beginning that change might require nothing more than asking the right question.

    Danny Dorling, Professor of Geography, University of Oxford
  • Jason Hickel shows that recovering the commons and decolonizing nature, cultures, and humanity are necessary conditions for hope of a common future in our common home. By extracting less we leave more for other species, other people and future generations, thus creating well-being for all. In an ecologically interconnected world, less is more.

    Vandana Shiva, philosopher of physics and author of Making Peace with the Earth
