A new kind of book


Overdevelopment, Overpopulation, Overshoot (OVER) crystallizes the ecological and social tragedies of humanity’s ballooning numbers and consumption. It’s time to make millions of people acutely, immediately, and viscerally aware of the dangers and deprivations facing people and the planet.

The ongoing power of this book, and this campaign, resides in the empowerment of people like you. We are granting free copies of OVER, which retails for $50, to people and organizations who can be ambassadors of information and inspiration, promising personalized delivery to policymakers, opinion leaders, activists, allied organizations, and new learners. Submit your request your free copies of OVERWe will review your submission and get back to you. We have a limited number of books to send around the world, so tell us what you plan to do with the book and how it will help make a difference.

If you don’t want to request a free copy to use raising awareness, the book is available commercially to add to your personal library.
