NegativesNegatives

Its just a book explaining how advertising works to con us in to buying things we dont want or need. Ive returned it for a refund as it is a book I neither want or need.Feels like something published 10 years ago by a Daily Mail journo. Its about buying less at higher prices, preferably from the authors high-minded virtue-signalling would be bearable if a) the author were more honest about her motives and consumerist outlook and b) if it had been edited properly and the low-calibre writing had been at least turned into semi-decent prose.Practise some mindful curation of your own and avoid buying this book.
