Korte samenvatting

There is an epidemic of “affluenza”. This term is used by critics of consumerism throughout the world. It’s an obsessive, envious mentality because it has caused depression and anxiety amongst millions. The author and psychologist Oliver James travelled the world to try and find out why. In each city he visited, he interviewed people. Firstly he discovered how affluenza is spreading and he wanted to find out why. Secondly he wanted to know how you can increase your emotional immune system. He uncovered how to reconnect with what really matters and learn to value what we have. So if you wish to be both successful and stay sane, this book is for you!
