Lipovetksy consigue relatar los comportamientos humanos de un modo tan exacto como descriptivo.
En este libro (el más brillante que he leído hasta la fecha) consigue abordar el complejo problema del hiperconsumismo desde sus raíces sociales y filosóficas más profundas.
MUY recomendable. Un básico

Ci sentiamo veramente felici oppure quello che noi percepiamo realmente, solo il paradosso della felicit? Questa la domanda al quale l'autore cerca di rispondere, attraverso l'analisi dei meccanismi che stanno alla base dei nostri acquisti, visti come piccoli atti verso una felicit appagata solo all'istante.
Testo interessante, ti permette di comprendere, attraverso una analisi storica-sociologica, i meccanismi del marketing che ti inducono a comprare determinati prodotti. E quindi offre spunti

Cuando compré este libro me pareció que el tema podría ser interesante, y lo es, pero tal vez no se requería hacer un libro tan extenso que termina siendo un catálogo de obviedades.
Francisco H. González
Obra que hace pensar acerca de algo tan presente en nuestra sociedad como el consumismo o hiperconsumismo.

Merece la pena dedicarle unas horas y reflexionar sobre lo leído. Ahí van algunas frases del libro. Una no-reseña a golpe de citas.

La fiebre del confort ha sustituido a las pasiones nacionalistas y las diversiones a la revolución. (p 7).

No será del vendedor de quien se fíe el comprador, sino de la marca, pues la garantía y la calidad de los productos se han transferido al fabricante. (p 25)

Depuis son ouvrage fondateur "l'ère du vide", j'adore Gilles Lipovetsky. Et cet ouvrage là est à la hauteur de l'ère du vide. L'auteur y décrit comment la consommation a peu à peu envahi toutes les sphères de l'existence, comment elle s'est emparé de ce qui lui était auparavant extérieur (santé, bien-être, spiritualité, contacts humain). Comment elle s'est affranchi de toutes les contraintes de moralité, d'espace et de temps (ouverture le dimanche, achats sur internet). Comment le prétendu ...more
