Fantastic book for all. I have been giving this book to children as an example of our world. The images are honest and informative. Great book.

"Synopsis" by , Photographs show the homes and possessions of average families in 30 countries around the world and document each family's lifestyle. The book puts a human face on the issues of population, environment, social justice and consumption.
"Synopsis" by ,
In an unprecedented effort, sixteen of the worlds foremost photographers traveled to thirty nations around the globe to live for a week with families that were statistically average for that nation. At the end of each visit, photographer and family collaborated on a remarkable portrait of the family members outside their home, surrounded by all of their possessions—a few jars and jugs for some, an explosion of electronic gadgetry for others. Vividly portraying the look and feel of the human condition everywhere on Earth, this internationally acclaimed bestseller puts a human face on the issues of population, environment, social justice, and consumption as it illuminates the crucial question facing our species today: Can all six billion of us have all the things we want?
"Synopsis" by , Menzel photographed average families in each of 30 nations, posed with their possessions gathered around them. As they depict the meaning of material wealth around the world, these dramatic photos ask a fundamental question: Can all five billion of us have everything we want? "A record of striking value".--Scientific American. 359 color photos.
