"Amidst a thousand tirades against the excesses and waste of consumer society, What's Mine Is Yours offers us something genuinely new and invigorating: a way out." --Steven Johnson, author of The Invention of Air and The Ghost Map

A groundbreaking and original book, What's Mine is Yours articulates for the first time the roots of "collaborative consumption," Rachel Botsman and Roo Roger's timely new coinage for the technology-based peer communities that are transforming the traditional landscape of business, consumerism, and the way we live. Readers captivated by Chris Anderson's The Long Tail, Van Jones' The Green Collar Economy or Malcolm Gladwell's The Tipping Point will be wowed by this landmark contribution to the evolving ecology of commerce and sustainability.

This book is a comprehensive look at what the 2010s might look like in terms of exchange. Rethink capitalism, rethink your relation to objects and discover how using might be more important than owning. It is very well written and documented and it should hit the shelves of all people interested in a realistic amelioration of our society. Issues of liberty, ownership, identity and social contract are dealt with in such a new way. Read it and share it!

One of the best books I have read in a while. Extremely accurate and well researched and written in a way that is accessible to the general public.
