Civilized to Death: The Price of Progress is an excellent exploration of what true quality of life really is. It dispels many myths about hunter/gatherer societies and the modern myth of perpetual progress. Is being overworked, stressed out, disconnected and anxious about the future better than having lots of free time and being intimately connected to community? It is time to question some assumptions about the society we have created, often on the back of false narratives of the past. Civilized to Death helps clarify the realities of the past and the stories we tell ourselves about the present in lively and readable ways, provoking new questions and potential answers. Highly recommended. ~ Reviewed by Chris Morrow
