Right stuff


Sir, – Many thanks for Patrick Freyne’s interesting article “Don’t buy stuff. Do stuff” (January 17th) on James Wallman’s book Stuffication – Living More With Less. Mr Wallman, described as a futurist, claims that the western world has been drowning in possessions since the 1920s and this hasn’t made us happier.

I have taken Mr Wallman’s advice and will not buy his book. Though I may reconsider this at a later date, something he might also appreciate. – Yours, etc,
