Publisher Comments:

In his bestseller Affluenza, David Wann and his co-authors diagnosed the debilitating disease of over-consumption.  In Simple Prosperity he shows readers how we can overcome this disease by investing in a variety of real wealth sources. To recapture a more abundant and sustainable lifestyle, try:

- Creating a richer life story through personal growth incentives

- Forming higher-yield friendships and stronger bonds through social capital

- Taking preventive healthcare measures to build up wellness reserves

- Balancing the biological budget through “greener” currency

- Caring for people, not just cars, to improve your neighborhood wealth index

- Resolving that pesky carbon conundrum through energy savings

- Celebrating instead of desecrating! Cultural prosperity futures value the earth as a sacred place

In our age of hedge fund hysteria, Simple Prosperity is a new way of investing that will save our sanity and the planet.

In his bestseller Affluenza, David Wann and his co-authors diagnosed the debilitating disease of over-consumption.  In Simple Prosperity, he shows readers how we can overcome this disease by investing in a variety of real wealth sources. To recapture a more abundant and sustainable lifestyle, Wann proposes goals of personal growth, rewarding relationships, preventative healthcare, community involvement, and environmental commitment.  In our age of hedge fund hysteria, Simple Prosperity is a new way of investing that will improve quality of life and save the planet.

"This is a valuable and concise digest of much that we've figured out in recent years, about health, stress, joy, community. The only thing it won't tell you how to do is make more money; instead, it will let you see that you may already have enough."—Bill McKibben, author Deep Economy

"Perhaps the highest compliment one writer can give another is 'I wish Id said that!' David Wann has woven together all the right stuff to make a compelling and appealing case for the abundance of enough and the poverty of more. He stands firmly with one foot in the intimate details of daily life and the other in the shocking details of the degradation of healthy ecosystems and communities. Both the appeal of a better personal life and the horror of what will be upon us if we dont act should get us all on the Simple Prosperity bandwagon."—Vicki Robin, coauthor Your Money or Your Life, cofounder of Conservation Cafes

"Dave Wann's recipes from his own experience in Simple Prosperity are a breath of fresh air, and just what we need for a saner future. They include ideas, sound research and down-to-earth advice we can all use. This book is also much more: a friendly, personal guidebook for living a more enjoyable, healthy, loving life."—Hazel Henderson, author, Ethical Markets: Growing The Green Economy

"If ever there was a right book at the right time, Simple Prosperity is it. This country needs this book."—Lester R. Brown, President, Earth Policy Institute, author of Plan B 2.0: Rescuing a Planet Under Stress and a Civilization in Trouble
