In More or Less, Jeff Shinabarger calls readers to create their own social experiments to answer the question, “What is enough?”
It all started with one idea: What would happen if we created a culture in which we gave away whatever was more than enough for us? How would our habits change if we shed the excess of money, clutter, and food in our lives? In More or Less, readers will learn how to draw a line of “enough” in their consumer choices, how to see generosity as a chance to experience freedom in a greedy world, and how to make small changes now that will help others forever. As Shinabarger reminds them, defining “enough” is more than a responsibility—it is an opportunity to give hope. With a foreword by Bob Goff.

Top Highlights

“we don’t just have more stuff than we need; we have more love than we need” (source)

“Consider for a moment someone you know whose place on the scale of enough is much closer to the ‘needing more’ end” (source)

“The change begins when we acknowledge that our excess creates an opportunity to address the needs of others.” (source)

“In our society, the question is not whether we have excess, but rather what we will do with our excess. How will we turn our excess into action?” (source)

“Currently, the richest 1 percent of the world own as much collective wealth as the bottom 57 percent combined” (source)
