Book of the Week: Share or Die (1)

Share or Die is the first collection of writing from Generation Y about post-college work and life in the 21st Century. It was recently published by, edited by Malcolm Harris.

A new economy based in collaboration rather than competition is growing, and young people are at the cutting edge. Unsatisfied with their parents’ communities, 20-somethings are using technology to build an entire infrastructure of social entrepreneurship dedicated to using less and sharing more. Share or Die chronicles some of these projects and gives readers the tools they need to join this new economy.
