Trend forecaster James Wallman reveals the world's growing sense of stuffocation – and how we can move away from it. We have more stuff than we could ever need - clothes we don't wear, kit we don't use, and toys we don't play with. But having everything we thought we wanted isn't making us happier. It's bad for the planet. It's cluttering up our homes. It's making us feel 'stuffocated' and stressed - and it might even be killing us.

What made the experience of listening to Stuffocation the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed the author's British accent, and his exploration of a number of different ways of living - it was perhaps a little long, but provided ample time for mulling over the concepts he raised.

Have you listened to any of Kris Dyer’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No

We are in the midst of an obesity epidemic, but despite being inundated with diet advice we are only getting fatter. We count calories and exercise regularly, yet still the pounds won't budge. Why? In this highly enjoyable and provocative book, Dr Jason Fung sets out a groundbreaking new theory: that obesity is caused by our hormones, rather than a lack of self-control. He reveals that overproduction of insulin in the body is the root cause of obesity and obesity-related illnesses including type 2 diabetes

Really liked the thorough analysis this book goes through - most books about obesity have 1 chapter background then 20 on why they have the magic solution. This is 20 chapters of explanation of the challenges of obesity and a short guide to how to implement simple changes to fight this disease.
