Sierra Club’s Favorite Consumerism Book

This is a review of one of the Sierra Club’s favorite books on consumerism, courtesy of their Greenlife blog:

The Cul-de-Sac Syndrome: Turning Around the Unsustainable American Dream (by John Wasik, $25, Bloomberg Press, June 2009): While a large suburban home might be the stereotypical American dream, Wasik argues that it’s a destructive one and explains how moving away from urban centers in pursuit of “as much house as possible” produced not just a housing crisis, but an unsustainable way of life.
