New Campaign and Website Help America "Get Satisfied"
What do Americans need that most eludes them? It’s not a tank of cheap gas (as astonishing as that would be) or ever earlier pre-holiday sales. What Americans need most – and most of them know it – is SATISFACTION, especially the satisfaction of enough. Never before have so many people who balance so much faced the gnawing, gamut-stretching craving for more. Now Simple Living America has launched the “Get Satisfied” campaign, with a brand-new website at www.getsatisfied.org and an October book entitled, “Get Satisfied: How Twenty People Like You Found the Satisfaction of Enough.”
Simple Living America is a Los Angeles-based nonprofit organization affiliated with the CRESP Center for Transformative Action at Cornell University. Hollywood spokespeople include Alexandra Paul and Ed Begley, Jr., who calls the campaign the start of a “satisfaction movement” in America. The book “Get Satisfied” will be published by Easton Studio Press on October 1, 2007, and features a Foreword by Peter C. Whybrow, M.D., director of the Semel Institute for Neuroscience & Human Behavior at UCLA and author of “American Mania: When More Is Not Enough.”
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
“Judging from the flood of public responses to Simple Living America’s call for satisfying stories, people want fulfillment and sufficiency. What a relief for our maxed-out lives and for our maxed-out planet! Everybody finds the satisfaction of enough in different ways and this book shines a light forward on many of them. I’m glad I’m satisfied. You will be too.”
ED BEGLEY, JR., Actor and Activist
“This book is a watershed in America’s quest for national and planetary sanity.”
WANDA URBANSKA, Host and Coproducer, Simple Living with Wanda Urbanska public television series
“Recycle all those other self-help books -- this is the only one you will need.”
ALEXANDRA PAUL, Actor and Activist
“What a wonderful antidote to our over-stuffed and over-rushed world… we are given insight after insight into what really makes life satisfying and complete. It may not be a simpler life, though sometimes it is, but it is certainly a life in which the delight of being fully alive permeates every day and every breath.”
SARAH SUSANKA, Author, “The Not So Big Life: Making Room for What Really Matters”
“This is the book we really need, the one that cuts to the core: firsthand stories of truly satisfied people.”
BILL MCKIBBEN, Author, “Deep Economy: The Wealth of Communities and the Durable Future”
