    EBOOK Bonfire of the Brands How I Learned to Live Without Labels There's some interesting stuff in this book about our committment to branded goods The part that continues to resonate with me is his discussion of why we reserve the greatest resentment for those who adopt styles most similar to our own I think it explains a lot about hipster hating hipsters like me

The basic premise is an interesting one why are brands so important to some people and can they really define who you are or who you aspire to bePersonally I ve never really bought into the brand identity thing I don t feel I define myself through what I wear or display I have deeds and words to perform that functionIt s an interesting concept though and whilst Neil Boorman was clearly obsessed with what others thought of him I don t give two hoots if some shallow person thinks they know all about me based on my clothesPerhaps this is because in my formative years I simply didn t have the disposable cash to lavish on such trophy brands or the fact that I spent what I had on books CDs and other such ephemeraThe book provides some good insights into the consumer culture what s caused it and what potentially lies aheadI ll be using it to teach my kids about the perils of brand snobbery and explain exactly how they can save money to spend on something ultimately rewarding
