Calvary Church - Damansara - Ps David

I was asked to read this book by my church pastor - he says it will turn my life around - as if my life needed to do that! Anyway, I promised him that I will read it - so here goes . . .

Larry is a successful sales manager. He married Carol a few years ago and they were soon caught up in the vicious rat race after buying a big house, a boat and an expensive car. Soon their relationship became strained by these additional pressures and they separated unhappily "for some time and space" to sort things out. This is very typical of today's married couples in the rat race for material possessions.

Psychological Obsolescense - marketeers insidiously plant the notion in our minds that we need to buy the latest upgraded version even though the existing one is still in good working order. This is thought to be one of the ways they control our spending habits - making us buy things that we do not need to impress people that we may not even like.
