    Before May 2011 the top demographics experts of the United Nations had suggested that world population would peak at 9.1 billion in 2100, and then fall to 8.5 billion people by 2150. In contrast, the 2011 revision suggested that 9.1 billion would be achieved much earlier, maybe by 2050 or before, and by 2100 there would be 10.1 billion of us. What's more, they implied that global human population might still be slightly rising in our total numbers a century from now. So what shall we do?

    Story

    This book had some interesting information which could have been presented in about half the space used. The author spent too much space presenting his personal bias toward less consumption and less individualism. There is an underlying implication that those of us that choose to live in the suburbs, have second homes and consume more have been duped. I continue to do these things because I enjoy them and can afford to do them, even though this is contrary to the author's opinions on current trends and future sustainability.

    While there is some good information in the book and the reader does a good job, it was difficult to wade through the infinite anecdotes.
