In the 20th century humanity consumed products faster than ever, but this way of living is no longer sustainable. This new and important book shows how technological advances are driving forms of 'collaborative consumption' which will change forever the ways in which we interact both with businesses and with each other. The average lawn mower is used for four hours a year. The average power drill is used for only twenty minutes in its entire lifespan. The average car is unused for 22 hours a day, and even when it is being used there are normally three empty seats. Surely there must be a way to get the benefit out of things like mowers, drills and even cars, without having to carry the huge up-front costs of ownership? There is indeed. Collaborative consumption is not just a buzzword, it is a new win-win way of life. This insightful and thought-provoking new book by Rachel Botsman and Roo Rogers is an important and fast-moving survey of the dramatic changes we are seeing in the way we consume products. Many of us are familiar with freecycle, eBay, couchsurfing and Zipcar. But these are just the beginning of a new phenomenon. Rachel Botsman and Roo Rogers have interviewed business leaders and opinion formers around the world to draw together the many strands of Collaborative Consumption into a coherent and challenging argument to show that the way we did business and consumerism in the 20th century is not the way we will do it in the 21st century.

Rachel Botsman's book on the Rise of Collaborative Consumption is a brilliant read and will form the basis of how I progress my thinking on social capital, social enterprise and the future of consumption.

She makes the topic engaging and enjoyable through the usage of excellent examples but also a strong and compelling basis of discussion. The social and collaborative economy is a rapidly growing part of everything we experience as consumers but also leaders.

Rachel challenges the reader to move out of their comfort zone and shift their mindset to the future (present) of consumption.

Highly recommended book for anyone in leadership positions in any enterprise.

This is my go to book for keeping my passion fueled for my own collaborative economy Biz. Shameless plug begins here: I have designed a Food Industry Collaborative, EuHerd.com, where ugly produce, shared coffee roasters and artisanal food makers can call us their home.

It's a good entrance point to collaborative economy.
It lacks of the downside of it. Why isn't exploding? Which are the main reasons which some innitiatives rises and then falls?
Anyways, it is a first good overview of this theme.
Maybe a new version after 5 more years would be even better.

This is a great book that gives good insight on collaborative consumption. Rachel and Roo give relevant facts and resources throughout the book. The story telling helps you understand how businesses are being created to collaborate in today's worlds. If you run a business or a website this is a great read to get the knowledge on how people and communities are moving toward the collaborative lifestyle. Get the book you wont regret it!

Every now and then a book comes along that opens my eyes to an important mega-trend that I have totally missed. What's Mine is Yours brings together social enterprise, the sharing economy, environmental consciousness and community care in one brilliant idea: collaborative consumption. Why I did not read this book sooner is beyond me. I'm only glad that I finally read it. It changed the way I see the world and the relationship of business to it.

This is a fascinating book that covers the changes towards a collaborative consumption economy made possible by the internet and an important development that can change the way we consume, the way we appreciate our belongings and the way we impact the environment. Well written and very interesting and thought provoking. Highly recommended.

A new age of sharing and collaboration is upon us. Are you ready?

If not, you may find yourself left behind.

"What's Mine is Yours. The Rise of Collaborative Consumption" is an important new book by Rachel Botsman and Roo Rogers. It explains how the extraordinary disruption caused by the communications revolution is spawning an explosion in sharing, bartering, lending, trading, renting, gifting and swapping.

Sites like Couchsurfing.com, which co-ordinates swaps of 'couch' accommodation for visitors and travelers has become the third most visited travel site in the world.

Car-sharing services like Zipcar saw their membership triple in 2009, and it is estimated that by 2015, 4.4 million people in North America and 5.5 million in Europe will belong to similar services.

People are realising that they don't have to own everything themselves, and that reaching out to others and sharing saves them money, makes them feel good and makes them new friends.

It meets a fundamental human need for connection and sharing.

Even mega consumer brands like Nike are shifting their brand focus and advertising away from products and towards building collaborative communities, investing in nonmedia social hubs like NikePlus, where runners around the world post runnning routes, map their runs, offer advice and encourage one another. It is estimated that Nike is spending 55 per cent less on traditional advertising and celebrity endorsements than it did ten years ago.

So why is this change occurring? Botsman and Roo cite a number of reasons, one of which is that it
feeds what sociologist Marilynn Brewer calls our 'social self', the part of us that seeks connection and belonging.

People have a need to connect. We are essentially social beings. And after 60 years of what author Clay Shirky terms one-way media communication (television to us) the internet has given back some choice to consumers - and they're taking it.

Botsman and Roo posit that in 10 years people won't be judging each other by their credit rating but by their 'reputation rating' - what they give to, what they share and in what they participate. This will be a radical departure from the era of defining ourselves by the brands we display and the houses we live in.

There exists a huge desire for more meaning and connection in life.

Now is the time.

This is the most important book since "What would Google do?" and Clay Shirky's "Cognitive Surplus". Read it or miss out on the next big thing.
Every now and then a book comes along that enables us to change the way we see life. What's Mine is Yours" is a book that is hard to categorize. - it does not fit into "the read this and you will be happier" or "20 ways to improve the way you do business' or even "how to move from Mr Angry letter writing to getting yourself heard and actioned with your local council. It is a book that addresses a whole range of issues, from the impact of hyper-consumerism on the individual and the society and how they are joined at the hip, to how we can use old practices like bartering, trading and swopping to create a new economy and manage the world's resources better. It analyses the challenges and then offers food for thought for solutions

Intelligently written, accessible, insightful and without being 'touchy feely psychobabble,' the authors genuinely reach out to the parts of ourselves that sense that there is a better way to live together and show us how the power of collective behaviour through technology and social networking are actually creating online and face to face communities.

If you, like me have traded on ebay, do your bit for recycling and maybe even subscribe to Freecycle.com, pat myself on the back, but still have a sense that there is so much more I can do, but don't know where to start then this is a must read. And if you are not, then I challenge you to read this book and not feel optimistic about life again.
